Witch Way Lunch

One more day until Halloween. I know many are probably tired of the parade of Halloween lunches, but I just love them. You may actually see just one or two more even after trick or treating is over. I just can't help it! Today's lunch was a fun little witch theme.

Colby jack, mustard and smoked Tofurky sandwich, dried worms (chow mien noodles), rat poo (raisins), candy corn, celery, carrots, pretzel/cheese broom, and a vanilla yogurt witches brew w/ red grape 'eye' slices.

We also made some fabulous pumpkin spice dip today. Well, actually it is adapted from a vegan pumpkin pie filling from The Family Kitchen, but since I am inept at making crusts, I just made the filling. Typically, we make a cream cheese based pumpkin dip, which is delicious, but this is so so good too! You can make as little or as much this version is great for breakfast or a snack. We served it with apple slices and graham crackers. Yum!

  1. I'm definitely going to have to see if my kids like that dip... my daughter gets so few really good dipping options as she can't have milk and this is a great idea for a dairy-free one that's healthy!

  2. Hope they enjoy it, Kat. I know when we use it warm, is heavenly. But, cold is delicious too! I've even mixed some into yogurt for a treat and spread it on toast! Yum!
