Halloween Treats For Grown-Ups

Let children have their candy. Adults can have their own fun!

Set up a horror movie marathon

Watch or rewatch the classics—Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Carrie—or choose a theme: black and white movies, B movies, vampires, ghosts… there’s no lack of options! Instead of popcorn, prepare raw vegetables or roasted cauliflower for snacking.

Invite friends over for a themed dinner

Why not make it a potluck? Here are some ideas:

   Appetizer:  Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern bell peppers

  Soup:  Ricardo’s green vegetable soup or cream of butternut squash with cajun shrimp

  Main course:  Pumpkin and chicken curry, again by Ricardo, or a squash- or pumpkin-based casserole

  Dessert:  Pumpkin pie, or the delicious ghoulish pumpkin mousse we suggest below
