You know all those craft and food ideas you pin on Pinterest? How often do you get around to actually making them? This past weekend I attempted to make some Halloween party food for my son’s 8th birthday party and discovered that things don’t necessarily end up looking as good as they do on Pinterest.
It didn’t help that I was short on time. First, I tried to make the monster jaws using peanut butter and almonds for teeth. Epic fail! So I ditched that project and then scrambled to get the breadstick bones and mummy dogs in the oven and then madly peeled clementines for the pumpkins. I was also planning to make carrot fingers with dip but that never happened.
The results were OK but certainly weren’t in league with the photos you see on Pinterest. But in the end it hardly mattered. The kids thought the food was great!
