Halloween

Halloween Blog Post Heading

 

With Halloween lurking around the dark corner and it falling on a Friday this year, we will definitely be having a party after we have gone TRICK OR TREATING !!!

I have three gorgeous girls and when I was putting this post together, they helped me find the best ideas and quite possibly some of the most horrible looking ideas too…. so don’t be FOOLED, it’s not only boys who like the gruesome stuff…. so do the girls 

For the Adults we will be making a GOOD OLD SOUTH AFRICAN POTJIE. This is one of our absolute favourite recipes – http://www.potjiekosworld.com/poultry-potjie-recipes/chicken-cream-sauce-potjie/. There are also a huge variety of recipes so you can make them vegetarian or any variation you wish. Most of all though, I just love the idea that it is made in a what looks like a WITCH’S POT (insert Witch’s cackle here!!!)

Then there are obviously the kids I have found a few really stunning ideas that can be manipulated to be Allergen Free in many different ways and even HEALTHY !!!

To start, my girls love giving their friends little gifts all the time, so we have a choice of these two super cute ideas to put together for their friends, that are cheap and easy enough for the girls to do themselves. We are also going to put some cute Halloween jokes in them. You can download these free printables to save some time 
