Ghoulishly Good Halloween Dinner Ideas

| 10/26/2015 9:00:00 AM

This time every year, my mom and I start planning our Spooky Halloween dinner. The house is decked out with cob webs, ghosts, pumpkins, lights and candles when everyone shows up in their costumes. The table is filled with a feast of ghoulishly named dishes and treats.

We wanted to share some of the nutritious, or boo-tricious, ideas that we put on the table so you can do something a little better than a bowl full of artificially flavored goo (aka candy). I sat down with my mom and came up with some of our favorites.

Halloween punch 

Blood Bath Punch

We always use a veggie and fruit juice blend. There are a ton of 100 percent blends that have tomato juice in them, so they’ll have a good red color. You can also use cranberry or red grape. I would recommend diluting full-fruit blends with some filtered water because of all the sugar, eek!

Roasted Ears with or without Wax

You might have guessed it, but this one is oven-roasted corn, with or without butter. We like to leave the husks on when roasting, so gently pull them back to clean, remove the silks, salt and brush with a little olive oil. Pull the husk back over the corn and roast for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Crow Poop

Any spinach and artichoke dip recipe will do for this funny concoction. Stay away from ones that use butter or mayo, and opt for ones that use Greek yogurt or another healthy choice. We use veggies, such as carrots, broccoli or cucumbers, for dipping.
