As Halloween approaches this week I am reminded of the resolve I made last year to have everything ready by this September for this year. I have this tradition of doing everything last minute then the night of breathing a sigh of relief that they didn’t trick-or-treating as the boy next door. At the rate I’m going this year they’ll be dressed as the new kid on the block. Get it!? We just moved. New neighborhood. New kid on the block!? I watch too much Hocus Pocus.
As you may have gathered I’m right on track with my tradition of waiting until the last minute to get everything ready, at least when it comes to costumes. For some reason the food always gets thoughtfully planned out and I already have my Costco size bag of candy. Go figure.
This year as I was thinking about fun treats and snacks to have I was heading down the creepy, gross path way more than the cutsey pumpkins and ghosts. I’ve realized that as my kids get older they have learned to appreciate the gross things in life. Awesome.
These Halloween Deviled Egg Eyeballs use my favorite Safest Choice Eggs that are 100% budget friendly, they are easy to make (just require a little waiting time), and my kids were totally grossed out by them. Winning. Naturally they ate them. They are boys after all.
