Halloween Mac ‘n Cheese(ball)
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
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.
(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.
