It's a Monster Mash!

Some post-Halloween pictures! This year, our little KK, suited up as a crosswalk guard for ghoulish minions.

One of my favorite little dessert dishes for this Halloween party. It really looks like a graveyard in there! 

My contribution to the party was making a brain. It was so incredibly easy, I will definitely be doing it again for next year!  

1 small sized melon (honeydrew/watermelon)


1. With a vegetable peeler, shave off the top layer of the melon to expose the membranes under neath.

2. Use a skewer or a toothpick to draw the various gyri of the brain. Make sure you create a middle crevice to divide the 2 hemispheres. If you'd like to be super nerdy, you can try to replicate the various regions of the brain (i.e., temporal, parietal lobes, cerebellum). 

3. Use a small, sharp paring knife to cut out the various lines that you've just drawn with the toothpick. Make sure you cut deep enough to create dimensionality to the melon. 

Happy belated Halloween!
