Tomato Mamas and veggie Martians are some funny food recipes for kids, while severed hand sangria brings some creepy fun to adult celebrations. Tomato Mamas are fun and nutritious snack recipes that children can help prepare, while veggie Martians are fun meal ideas for even picky eaters. Severed hand sangria is a funny alcoholic punch recipe that is ideal for Halloween.
To make Parenting Magazine's Tomato Mama, scoop out half of a ripe tomato and replace the pulp with a mixture of bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Top with additional Parmesan, and use olives and a basil leaf for eyes and a mouth. Create hair with cooked spaghetti and bake the treat for about 10 minutes at 400 F.
The veggie Martians recipe from Bird's Eye combines broccoli and mixed vegetables with cream cheese, Swiss cheese and Greek yogurt for a fun way to serve veggies. Bake the mixture inside a biscuit crust brushed with green food coloring for about 15 minutes, and then decorate it with carrots, peas, green beans and corn to create facial features. Pretzel sticks topped with peas serve as tasty antennae.
The Cooking Channel recommends dry red wine, brandy, sparkling water and orange juice for a simple spooky sangria. Add brown sugar and sour cherries in syrup, and garnish the punch with thin slices of lemon, lime, grapefruit and oranges. Freeze several water-filled latex gloves beforehand. Remove the latex from an ice hand, and add it to the punch bowl before serving. Replace the severed hand as needed.
