I haven’t been cooking much the last couple of days – when you make lots of food, you end up with tons of leftovers, so I’ve really been working through those. With that in mind, though, it’s never too early to start planning on big meals. I’m next thinking Halloween.
Now, I know the popular thing is to come up with some apple cider drink, throw in some green dye, and call it a witch’s brew. Little too predictable, if you ask me. What might work, though, is if I surprise them with something with a powerful flavor. Perhaps limeade, since that also is a bit green.
I’m actually thinking of something fun with meatballs for a dinner idea, though. I usually make meatballs with just beef, but you can really blend all sorts of ground meat together. I’m thinking a combination of beef, lamb, and pork, and make some kind of awesome Frankenstein meatball. Maybe come up with some powerful seasonings for it too, to make it really memorable.
Not sure how bold I feel, but I could even come up with a flambe gravy for extra fun – fire bad! Fire bad! Though I suspect I’ll need my trusty fire extinguisher on hand if I try this.
