~ Healthy Halloween -2~

Halloween is all about adding fun element to the festive fall 
season and bringing out the spooky kid in us.Bright orange
 pumpkins, creepy ghoulish costumes and eerie decorations reflect
 the true spirit of the octoberfest. The Halloween mania is catching 
 the Indian party circuit like  storm!! International school culture,
 expat friends and web chats with cousins n friends  abroad has given 
more the excuse  for a Halloween party to lil one, who wants to
 invite her friends for a ghoulish get together!!After a long week of 
diwali celebrations and ongoing work commitments I had to turn 
down her party idea but promised her to treat on some boolicious 
munchies till halloween. Fall is the season of persimmons too, 
daughter had never tasted it before, so serving it as a fun food 
 surely doubled up the fun !! 

The Creepy  Housewich

House-Wholegrain bread topped with peanut butter . Jackolantern- 
sliced persimmon with cucumber(wish I had some kiwis at home too)
banana tombstone n moon with cheesy ghosts n polkas.

My family is crazy over pumpkins- we just love the ripe ones as 
a stir fry veggie with Indian spices and a hint of chili .The pumpkin 
dip with boiled pumpkin and yogurt is an all time hit with my family. 
These orange beauties  are still  lying on the counter for some 
further experiments - some pumpkin muffins or a hearty pepita
 topped pumpkin soup over the week.

Jack o lanterns on my plate 

Jackolantern- sliced persimmon with cucumber features 
and cheesy ghosts n polkas.

If persimmons are not available in your part of the world, go ahead 
 with some sliced oranges ,tangerines or even papayas !!

While most of us are rejoicing in the festive spirit,the noble 
souls at Dabur India are putting in their best efforts to spread this
