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!

- 1 dozen hard boiled eggs, shells extremely cracked
- 6 cups hot water
- 1 tube green food coloring gel
- 1 tube blue food coloring gel
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1/2 cup mayonaise
- 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
- 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
- 1 tube red food coloring gel
- Kosher salt
- Fresh cracked black pepper
- In a large bowl add the hot water, green food color, blue food color, and vinegar. Stir to combine well and allow the gel color to mix. Add the eggs and allow to sit for at least 1 hour.
- Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs and carefully peel the shells away. Once all of the eggs are peeled, cut each egg in half, placing the cooked yolks in a medium bowl. Arrange egg white halves on a plate.
- To the egg yolks add the mayo, pickle relish, mustard, salt, and pepper. Once you have the mixture to taste, add the red food color a little at a time until the desired color is attained.
Prep Time: 00 hrs. 15 mins.
