Boo-tiful Halloween Party Food

Halloween party food is really the time to
give guests something unexpected.

Pumpkin stew.
Plan an easy menu that your guests will enjoy and remember long after the dinner party is over. We love this idea of preparing beef stew and serving it in a pumpkin. This delicious one dish main course also becomes the focus of the table serving as the centerpiece.

Prepare the pumpkin...

Use a variety of pumpkin that is safe to eat, since jack-o-lanterns are not very tasty. Cut off the top of your pumpkin and save as lid. Scoop out seeds and fibers. Replace lid and place pumpkin in a roasting pan filled with about 1/2 inch of water. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 1 1/2 hours.

Time to eat...

Prepare your favorite beef stew recipe and serve it in a pumpkin on a platter. To complete your Halloween party menu, we suggest serving pumpkin muffins, a salad, and a simple dessert.

One Stop Party Ideas Tip

For an added touch, decorate your own glasses.  Bring the Halloween spirit to the stemware with stickers or black electric tape.  Simply cut out a jack-o-lantern face from the black electric tape and apply to stemware.
