Goblin (Deviled) Eggs for Trick or Treat #SundaySupper #Halloween Party




I was so excited when I saw the theme for this weeks #SundaySupper was Halloween. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Maybe part of the reason is that, even though we were broke, my Mom made such a big deal about Halloween. From figuring out a homemade costume, to decorating the house, to giving out the candy and trying to scare the trick or treaters. It was just tons of fun.


Pumpkins were always the highlight of Halloween. When I was a kid we of course just carved them. Now there are all sorts of stencils, patterns, and tools to help you get it done. Remember the days of a steak knife and tablespoon? Ahh the good ol' days. But we have made the most of what is available today.










Now as an adult, with adult children, I don't have to figure out costumes anymore. But I do enjoy decorating the house and having fun with the trick or treaters. Since we just moved I decided to play nice this year and put out all of our "cute" Halloween decorations. Next year we will do it scarey!! 

I came up with this idea from the Easter egg days. You knew if there was a crack in the shell of the egg there would be color on the white when you opened it up. Well one year the kids decided to do it on purpose. I can tell you it made for some interesting looking egg salad! I think my kids would have enjoyed these. Plus it is a great reason to make deviled eggs, which my kids love!

Looking for more frighteningly fun Halloween delights? How about Ghoulash, Devilish Potato Mummies, or a Vampire Kiss Martini?
