Halloween Party

Who is this ? Hee, hee, hee, it's just me. I make a wicked witch don't you think? Last night my honey and I went to a spooktacular Halloween costume party. I can't help it, when I hear costume party I always have to go as a witch. I love smearing all the green stuff on my face, weird eye makeup ,and all that lovely hair....which by the way kept getting in my mouth when I ate. Now that I can do without, but what's a witch to do?
Here's my honey! Put on your sun glasses, this rhinestone cowboy has too much bling, bling.
Enter if you dare. The front yard was transformed into a graveyard and every room in the house was decorated to the max. The decorations were amazing.
Here we are with our hostess with the mostess. Alicia, we had a great time!
Besides having a delicious spaghetti dinner, we had yummy appetizers, the best desserts and lots and lots of candy. I took this 8 layer mexican dip, it's delish. If you haven't ever made it give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Here is the basic recipe.

1 9-ounce can refried beans
1/4 cup picante salsa
1 6-ounce container guacamole dip
1 8-ounce sour cream (I use light sour cream)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese ( I always add more cheese)
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 small can sliced black olives
1 medium tomato, chopped
large bag restaurant style tortilla chips

Mix together refried beans and picante salsa. (For more fire add a couple of splashes of hot taco sauce to this mixture) Spread mixture about 1/4 inch thick on a plate or platter.

Next layer guacamole dip and sour cream. Top with cheese, green onions, olives, and chopped tomatoes. Cover and chill for a couple hours. Serve with chips, and enjoy.

I'm not casting any spells today just witching you a happy day. Linda

violetlady said...

I did a double take when I saw your picture. I went to a Halloween party on Saturday night and there was a witch there who looked just like you! Do all witches look alike? (ha,ha)

Your dip sounds absolutely delicious. I am going to give it a try for our family Christmas get together.

The party looks like a lot of fun. I hope you enjoyed yourself.

Hey Linda,
It's great meeting you. I tried to reply to your comment on my blog, but it did'nt work. I love your costume. Have fun treat or treating!! Chery:)

So glad you had fun at your party! Funny what draws you to being a witch is what repels me from being one. I can't stand all that make-up on my face. By the end of the evening I would have little scratches in the paint from my fingernails.


FarmHouse Style said...

Oh, what fun! I love your costumes:)
Thanks for the recipe! It looks delicious.

Hope you have a Happy Halloween.
