We're having a li'l Halloween party at work tomorrow and I made these to take. Since our menu consists of Blood Clot Salsa and Vomit and Human Skin (that's dip and chips), I thought these toesies would be right at home.
I thought afterwards about using strawberry jelly instead of ketchup. Then we'd have some toe jam. Yuk yuk.
I know you're dying to make some for your own freak fest so here's how:
Ketchup or mustard
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut a wedge into the end of each cocktail wiener to make a toenail.
2. Cut the tortillas into strips about 4 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. Discard the ends.
3. Soften the strips in the microwave between damp paper towels for 10 to 30 seconds.
4. Roll each wiener in a tortilla strip and secure with a toothpick.
5. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven, then fill the toenail with ketchup or mustard. Remove the toothpicks before serving.

I'm going to do something with my porch this weekend. I found these pictures so now I'm all inspired and stuff. I absolutely adore autumn. So while the commercial world all around me rushes Christmas, I'm taking my sweet time loving fall.

I went to a fall craft day this morning at the home of one of the nurses I work with. I had asked my Facebook friends earlier in the week for some ideas for an appetizer that I could take today and I went with Doghouse Dip! This recipe came from Dawn, my friend and local PartyLite candle lady. She's made this for candle parties that I've attended and it is SO good! It's called Doghouse Dip 'cause if you ever find yourself in the doghouse, this dip will sho' get you out!! It's chili mix, sour cream, cream cheese, corn and black bean salsa and shredded Mexican cheese. It'll knock your socks off and then put 'em back on for you. There were six of us ladies there, Lisa P, Lisa S, Heidi, Norma, Rosie and me. I work with five of them, everybody except Rosie. We had so much fun! And so much food!! We had my dip, a yummy Mexican dip, peach cobbler, chicken salad sammiches, a cold cuts, cracker and cheese platter and piggies in a blanket.
Here are two frames that Rosie and Heidi painted. They did such a great job! I was worried how my raggly little stuff was gonna look because I am not the least bit crafty. Ami got all the creative talent in our family!!
This is Rosie's frou frou pumpkin.
I LOVE it!!
