Fall Make Over

Well, I thought in honor of fall and Halloween, I'd pick out a different template to get my blog a face lift. So, I hope you are enjoying this pumpkin orange color. I was fortunte enough to find out about this cool place to get them called Aqua Poppy. There is a button near the bottom of the blog if you are interested.

I love thinking about Halloween and doing fun food and drinks. In years past, I've done punch and had a hand floating in it. If you haven't seen how to do it before, all you do is get a plastic glove and fill it with water. Use a rubber band or some string to tie up the end. Place in the freezer over night. Once the water is frozen you can cut up the glove and it will be in the shape of a hand. I saw this year's ago on Martha Stewart's Halloween special. Which by the way I saw recently again on the Fine Living Network.

I do a search for fun Halloween treats and thought this recipe looked really cute for a Boo Beverage and thought I'd share it with you today. The ingredients make it sound like something that would be good if you were doing a brunch. Oh, a Boo Brunch. How cute would that be? Pumpkin pancakes. You can see where this is going. LOL
This is from the Allrecipes website. Don't you just love this picture of it?
Boo Beverage
2 cups orange juice
2 cups milk
2 pints orange sherbet
4 ripe bananas
2 cups whipped topping
18 miniature chocolate chips

In four batches, process the orange juice, milk, sherbet and bananas in a blender until smooth. Pour into glasses. Cut a hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; fill with whipped topping. Pipe a ghost shape on top of each beverage. Position chocolate chips for eyes.

I'd love to hear if you are planning a Halloween party and if so what good things you plan on doing.

Love your new look. It takes me forever to figure out how to do something new. Was it easy?
