Frosting Recipe

Deviled Eggs

Taco Dip

Banana Ghost (choc chip eye/mouth) & Clementine (celery stem)

Witch Broom Rollups

2 zucchini
slices of ham
Monterey jack cheese
string cheese
green onions
toothpicks / pretzels

Trim ends of zucchini and discard. Using a vegetable peeler, slice zucchini lengthwise into 16 paper-thin slices; place in a single layer on a work surface. (Discard first slice of peel and seedy center.) Wrap and chill remaining zucchini for another use.

Stack ham slices and cut into 4 long strips. Repeat with cheese slices.

Sprinkle zucchini slices with pepper. Lay a ham strip in center of a zucchini slice and top with a cheese strip. Starting at one end of zucchini strip, roll it into a tight spiral; secure with a toothpick. Repeat.

For "brooms" - just cut string cheese and tie with green onion.  Insert either pretzel or toothpick - DONE!

Elephant / "Little Peanut" Baby Shower

YAY!!!  It's Baby Rose / Linda shower day!!  Momma Linda is doing sort of an elephant / gray, turq, cream theme for the nursery, so we got busy coming up with the "Little Peanut" theme.  Had so much fun celebrating both of them :)

Punch Recipe
 ...with the cutie mason jars!  Made those little elephants from my cricut and attached to straws!

 We played 2 really fun games:

1. Price is Right
2. Memory Game

Baby Shower Memory Game

2 Poster boards
Candy (found a lot of mine at

Basically just write the baby term name below on both poster boards (not in the same spot of course).  Need 15 letters covering on one side / 15 #s covering on the other side.  Then make sure you buy the candy bars for each baby term.

To play the game - just have guests guess 1 letter and 1 # (one from each poster board).  Then if the terms match, pull the cover off and give them the candy that associates with it!

Running nose – goobers
Time alone – zero bar
Night of Conception – SKOR bar
Breastfeeding – milky way
Umbilical cord – twizzler pull n peel
Doctor – butterfingers
Engorgement – milk duds
Dirty laundry – mounds bar
Hospital bills – 100 grand
Epidural – lifesavers
Baby giggles – snickers
Contractions – whoppers
Boy name – mike & ike / Girl Name - Baby Ruth / Baby Name - whatchamacallit
