Can you feel that? The chill in the air is already creeping in, and so are the Halloween decorations in every store I visit. As you’re well aware, I’m not a big fan of fall, but the holidays of the fall and winter seasons sure make the nip in the air a whole lot more tolerable.
While I do love delighting my kids with a fun themed meal every Halloween season, I don’t always have the same zest for pulling off the details.
Today I’m sharing my lazy mom’s guide to Halloween Dinner. I’m including three, super-simple ideas for pulling off that cute themed dinner, without the prep.
That’s right: if you’re decidedly *not* a Pinterest mom, this post is for you.
We’ll take any excuse to add Hillshire Farm® Lit’l Smokies® Smoked Sausage to the menu. Just microwave them according to the package instructions, mix in your favorite barbecue sauce, and you’ve got a killer appetizer! And, we think they add a clever touch to our Halloween theme dinner by serving them on top of this little skeleton we got at the dollar store. Delicious, and done!
Chicken strips are always a kid-friendly choice, and I love how easy it is to create the illusion of witches fingers. I bought Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips and prepared them according to the package. Then, I sliced them vertically to create “fingers.”
Next, I cut triangles out of a red bell pepper and affixed them to the chicken fingers with ketchup. Serve with your preferred dipping sauces.
Corn dogs always get a round of fist pumps in this house! I can’t think of an easier way to take this Halloween theme dinner up a notch than with State Fair® Corn Dogs. Just bake them according to package instructions and serve them on a platter. I bought those fun eye candies in the baking section and dipped them in ketchup to affix them to the corn dogs. Then, I drizzled ketchup on top.
