Preparing Roasted Owl

What, you’ve never had owl before?

For shame!

Seriously, you don’t know what you’re missing! All you need is a thinly sliced sweet potato and a little brown sugar. Cut the potato with your owl cookie cutter, sprinkle with sugar, and roast at 400 for 30 minutes. 

There you have it, roasted owl!

We had a Halloween preview for the littles the other day. With a party to attend later in the evening, we kicked off the pre-party fun with a spooky dinner complete with creepy decor.

The cute tins were compliments of Target’s dollar bin, as were the spider web bows, pencils, glow sticks and mini pads of paper.

Added to the straws were ribbon bats. These could have been perfected with some googly eyes, but we’re a bit abstract around here.

A whole host of ghoulish creatures were served for dinner:

  • Corndog Mummies
  • String Cheese Ghosts
  • Sweet Potato Owls
  • Monster Mouths
  • Ooey Gooey Mac & Cheese

OK, so maybe the kids don’t like sweet potatoes. They don’t want almond butter on their apples. Mustard (yes, those tiny little mustard dots) gives them the willies.


Steph and I loved it all! (Steph, you’re becoming a star on here!)

and by the way, do you know how difficult it is to get 4 kids to sit still, look at the camera and smile?!

Kaleb was thrilled he got to “dip.”  (No, fear of mustard doesn’t correlate to fear of ketchup.)

and Ryan was just thrilled he got to eat (as always).

What are your Halloween plans?
