It turns out spiders are pretty easy to carve out of most things and make a wonderful add-on to any macabre decoration. It’s funny, but I keep asking myself why all these horror treats come out so “cute” looking? Is it me, or does food just lend itself to whimsical. It has to be the artist, right? Am I not dark enough? I feel like Casper jumping out of a closet screaming “Boo!” while all the kids laugh.
Well as long as they’re entertained, right? And I’ve got more projects to validate my ghoulish-ness.
Ingredients: 5 or 6 avocados (two for decorations), three large tomatoes, 1 tablespoon lime-juice, 1 teaspoon cumin, a dash of garlic powder, and a bit of imagination.
The avocado sliced in half makes up the body of the arachnid, while two avocado halves will make up the legs. Same with the tomatoes. Everything else can get mixed and mashed together, like any good monster mash.
There are lots of uses for guacamole, other than chips ‘n’ dipping. You can use it on a burger, toss it in a salad, slather it in your tacos, or even use it as a decorative topping. My mind’s already spinning with ideas for this green garnish. Only seven weeks left till Halloween, kids!
