Yesterday, I turned on WRTI and grooved to classical music while I made Halloween inspired treats. On Friday evening I bought a women’s magazine for Halloween meals and although they weren’t gluten-free, I couldn’t pass up the magazine. I could make them GF myself.
I first made the ghost desserts. Joy now sells gluten-free ice cream cones and I made the pound cake to go inside the cones from scratch. I used this recipe: https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/golden-vanilla-pound-cake-recipe. I baked the cones for about fifty minutes, decorated with icing and they are delicious.
For dinner, I made a mummy meatloaf. This one was naturally GF and it was easy to make. It did call for breadstick dough and I found a mix for GF breadsticks. The recipe:
2 lbs ground beef
1 large egg
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 tube breadstick dough
1 cup marinara sauce
I used onion and black beans for the eyes.
I also made mashed potato ghosts as a side dish. It was the normal mashed potato recipe, but I used almond milk instead of dairy milk. I also used black beans for the eyes.
I had so much fun cooking yesterday and they were easy to make! These treats would be perfect for Halloween parties.
