Halloween is a time to make spookatacular lunches that are darculicious! I'm an expat living abroad but that hasn't stopped me from celebrating my U.S. holidays whether it's Halloween, Thanksgiving or Fourth of July, with  the help of  few good neighbors and community support,I always go out of my way to provide my kids with the best of both worlds. Before cooking our Halloween lunch, I joined up with the local English Afternoon School and after quite some hardwork of the owner of the school, Ms.Katerina Katsouli, and quite a few days of organization, My kids  and her students enjoyed a full week of Halloween festivities everything from spooky stories, trick or treating to Halloween fun and games and of course a complete lunch!! Happy Halloween!  It doesn't matter where you live in the world you can celebrate any holiday you want! We would like to thank Ms. Katerina Katsouli,  she really goes out of her way to make her students happy! Teachers like her are hard to find!





It's that time of the year again and I love it just as much as the kids!! There's so much in creating, serving and seeing smiling faces on the faces of people you love.

And now for the Halloween Lunch 



Ingredients
Witches Brew:
  • 1 big round eggplant
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 2 garlic cloves ( you can add more garlic to make it spicier) 
  • 1 medium sized zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Chili pepper (optional)

Take a sauce pan add your chopped up onions and garlic sweat them for about 2- 4 minutes then add
your chopped up zucchini and the inside of the pumpkin saute until veggies are soft enough to place in a blender. Add about 1/4 cup of water to and boil, veggies will soften faster, just be careful don't add to much water or it will become to soggy and watery.When veggies are soft enough run through blender making a smooth dip.


Take your eggplant and carve out the inside, add salt and place upside down on a paper towel and allow for the water to drip out for about half hour. Then place in oven for about 20 minutes on high. Make sure it doesn't bake all the way or it will  fall and it will not hold your dip. Take out of the oven add your dip and it's ready to serve!





Bloody Eyeballs:

Take 6 eggs separate egg whites from egg yolks
Add 1 cup water with salt and pepper allow to boil add egg yolks
