...and the truly scariest sight is a tired momma! She's the real zombie! I had just rangled 6 kids at an over crowed fall festival. Ticket cost were sucking me dry. Really! 2 BUCKS to throw a pie?! I had lost one kid for a good 15 minutes, there were a few tantrums, gimme this and gimme that mantras, "I'm cold"...."I'm bored"..."I wanna go home"...."I don't wanna go home!!!"
By the time I got home and rubbed my eyes, in pure exhaustion, I had concluded that I invented the zombie look long before Walking Dead.
Halloween is one of those holidays that just makes people loose all crotrol when it comes to food and especially 'treats'. Can I get an amen? Those little twizzlers and snickers will not keep or make your hips little...if you know what I'm saying!
And all the party food! Is there a way to eat the spooky treats and still not have all those ghoulish guilts?
Enter Trim Healthy Mama: Halloween Food
Now, you'll have to get the new book for some of these recipes. (It's only fair...and might I add totally worth it!)
First up is a Pimento Cheese Skull. I never follow a particular recipe when it comes to pimento cheese. Here i have Monterey Jack cheese, mayo and cream cheese. I mixed it all in my food processor and add pimentos. The eyes are boiled eggs, olives and almonds for teeth.
The crackers are obviously not on plan. Those were for party guest that may not have liked the Joseph Pita chips or veggies as a vessel for shoving this creamy goodness in the pie hole.
Layered Mexican dip. I have shredded chicken on the bottom, salsa, black beans, shredded cheese, tomatoes and olives. I put some sour cream in a baggie and cut off a corner to pipe a web.
Swedish Meatball 'bats' from the new Trim Healthy Mama cookbook page 61.
I did spaghetti sauce instead of the cream sauce.
Deviled Eggs with olive spiders!
Trim Healthy Mama's Fakertot casserole page 147. This was delicious! I made some tombstones and a spooky tree from Joseph Pita bread. I just over crisped them slightly.
Veggie skeleton with ranch dip!
WHERE ARE THE SWEETS????
THM Halloween just wouldn't be right without something sweet!
These treats are full of healthy fat, low carb and NO SUGAR!
Chocolate Chip Cookies, Skinny Peppermint Patties, Treeces, Pay Off Day Candy Pecan style, Lemon and Berry Gummies and Pay Off Day Candy dipped in Chocolate to mock the popular Snickers!
I had NO desire to dip my hand into my kids buckets this year. I haven't sampled one single sugar ladened candy or splurged on anything that will put me out of my skinny jeans next week!
You can still be creative with THM and holidays. It makes great party food and even people that don't do THM, will love it!
My best friend and I have been on THM for years and have never looked better!
So get that sugar-monkey off your back. Order the THM newly revised on plan book and cookbook. You can also find the book in stores like Sams and Kroger.
