A Halloween Celebration!

This Saturday, since we are no longer going to VA for the wedding, we're celebrating Halloween in style!  B and I are doing a pre-game, and so I am ready for a celebration!

The first essential to a killer Halloween party is to have an inflatable beer pool!  You add ice, pumpkin beer, seasonal ales, and get ready to serve them up!

The next step is to have a killer seasonal cocktail.  I am making Cinnamon Snaps - a large pitcher of them!  

Cinnamon Snaps
1.5 cups vodka 
1 cup apple schnapps 
1 cup apple cider 
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon

1. Mix the vodka, schnapps, and cider in a pitcher.  Add ice cubes and stir.  
2. On a plate, mix the sugar and cinnamon.  Moisten the rims of champagne glasses, and dip in the mixture.
3. Pour the cocktail into your glass, serve, and enjoy!  

I'm making some delicious treats too!  The traditional piggies in a blanket, with turkey little smokies, Halloween cupcakes, mushrooms stuffed with boursin cheese, and a chicken with roasted red pepper pesto bread...  

Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Pesto Bread 
1 Package of raw bread dough
1/3 cup roasted red pepper pesto
6 oz grilled chicken breast, sliced thin
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 

1. Grease a cookie sheet with a little olive oil
2. Spread out the bread dough, put the roasted red pepper pesto down in the middle
3. Layer the chicken on top of the pesto, top with cheese 
4. Roll up the edges of the dough, and pinch the seams tightly
5. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until browned on top.  Slice and serve!  

Stay tuned for Halloween brunch...
