Julia For An Evening

I hope everyone had an amazing time dressing up this past weekend. I went as Julia Child and I must say it was one of my most favorite costumes.Β I slept in sponge rollers like I used to when I was a kid to get really curly hair I could just pin down to make the older looking short hair style. I also came prepared with flashcards with my favorite quotes to say throughout the night in my best Julia voice; people were scared, but thats the goal of Halloween right?

Favorite Julia Child Quotes:

“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”

“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.”

“Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?”

“I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food.”

Since I came as Julia Child I couldn’t come without food so I made a Cheesy Artichoke Pumpkin Dip. Super easy and great for a fall party because it bakes in the pumpkin.

Ernie, Minnie Mouse, Sushi, Bob Ross and his painting, and a Hunter and Bambi all made it to the party!

My sister and brother-in-law had the hallowest of Halloween parties this past weekend. My sister’s and my mom is a pretty theatrical lady and raised us to dress up for all holidays. Not just green and red for Christmas but pilgrim outfits for the day before Thanksgiving and carrying our lunches in baskets or going to school with your face painted in a big red heart for Valentines day. So getting into holidays really stuck with us.

Pumpkin beer, other beer, more beer, wine, tequila, vodka, gin, you name it, it was bought for the party. We made mummy pigs in a blanket, pumpkin puking guacamole and caramel apple bites. The orange lights were turned on, the candles were lit and the party began and I have to say it was definitely a graveyard smash (get it? Bobby Pickett?)!!
