Halloweegan Spooky Dinner Revival!
Are you sick of ghosts yet? No? Good! This time I am bringing back from the dead an old Halloweegan dinner that I blogged about a couple of years ago...
Spooky! It's a meatless meatloaf shaped like a gingerbread man, surrounded by spooky mashed potato ghosts and pumpkin-puree pumpkins. I used the same recipe for the beet burgers that I made earlier this week. Making videos isn't a natural skill for me, so I prepared myself with some quick and easy instant mashed potatoes for the ghosts. The more time I can save in the kitchen the better when it comes to making videos! Freshly made mashed potatoes look better, but if you need to save time too I am not going to judge you. You will need some special decorating tools for this (large round and star decorating tips), unless you just want to wing it with a ziploc bag or pastry bag. You can also make your own parchment paper or wax paper pastry bag following the instructions from this handy video. OK, enough chit-chat! Let's watch the video! (warning: loud music!)
