a GRAND idea #5

IMG_8049 (2)Continuing with the October Halloween theme, the grandgirls and I went on a cooking craze. It was a recipe I found on Pinterest captured from a Woman’s Day magazine. I’ll link the recipe at the end. It involved something for everyone to do.

While I greased the ramekins and cut up the sweet potatoes, the oldest and youngest got busy attacking the rotisserie chicken, cutting into bite size pieces.

 After assembling and cooking the rest of the ingredients, we poured the mixture into the ramekins and began to tackle the puff pastry. Using a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter, then carefully cutting out eyes, nose and mouth, we placed the pastry on top of each ramekin. Now with all three girls on board, the final touch was applying the beaten egg on top, always fun handing the kids a paintbrush!

 Place on tray and into the oven. 20 minutes later, accompanied with a salad, dinner was ready!

 All the kiddos AND the adults really enjoyed this recipe! It didn’t hurt that they were involved in the making and creating! 🙂

 A side note: The recipe calls for 8 ramekins. 6 would be better and fuller.

 Happy October Halloween. It’s almost over!
