Halloween Mac ‘n Cheese(ball)

Happy Halloween!
For trick-or-treating, Charlie Cheddar…….decided to dress up like his idol, Mr. Sugar Pie Pumpkin.I think he did a good job, don’t you?
Unlike Rudolph, Mr. “Pumpkin” was not excluded from the reindeer games. [Or in this case, the squash games.] He fits right in.
He did have a little help from his cheesy friends.
And spiced things up a bit. It IS Halloween after all, we might as well get a little crazy.The costume process was surprisingly simple, aided by Southern Living‘s Pumpkin Cheese Ball recipe.Stirring worked for awhile, but as we all* learned in college, when making a cheeseball, you really just need to get your hands in there and SQUISH.

*And by all, I mean me and my friend Molly.Final touches were provided by Baron Broccoli.
Trick-or-Treat!(He tastes great with Wheat Thins.*)

*Also, generic, store-brand wheat “thin crisps.”
—————————————

And the morning after, when you wonder, just as you do with a bridesmaid dress the week after the wedding, What do I do with this costume* now?

*And yes, I do mean costume in the case of the bridesmaid dresses.

Take some pasta.
And some milk.
Melt that pumpkin poser into delicious cheese sauce.And make, I kid you not, THE BEST MAC & CHEESE EVER.Mmmmmm……

I was wondering what you made the stem out of. I was guessing celery. Broccoli is much stronger – good choice! I saw a recipe one time where you put two bundt cakes together to form a pumpkin and ice the whole thing. I always want to make all this food but don't have a clue what I'm going to do with the leftovers! Enjoy – Happy November already.
