Fearful & Wonderful Halloween Tips

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~Henry David Thoreau

The Home Comfort Cook Book from 1948 shares some neat Halloween tips and recipes for children.

Let the youngsters make fearful and wonderful pumpkin jack-o-lanterns, and cut-outs (of heavy black paper) of cats and witches, to trim the house and the table.

Instead of place cards use oranges with the name or initial of each guest spelled out with cloves (stuck in the oranges). The table could be covered with strips of orange and black paper.

Even the teen-agers love to bob for apples in a wash tub. After strenuous games they might like to serve the sandwiches below.

Tomato, Bacon and Cheese Sandwiches

Toast slices of bread on one side only. On the toasted side of each slice place a slice of cheese, slices of tomato and top them off with strips of bacon. Place the sandwiches on a cooky sheet or shallow baking pan in a hot oven (400 degrees F.). Bake them until the cheese is melted and the bacon cooked to the degree of doneness which you prefer.

I hope you have a lovely Monday. ~Brenda
