WINGER WITCHES NIGHT

I decided that women only* needed a little fun minus the men in our lives. What better excuse for a parteee than having my sister in town AND a Halloween cheer-up for me? What a blast and cheer up it definitely was! I stated that witches hats were optional. My grown-up niece, Crystal, dressed up all cute and witchy.

As the Utah bloggers can confirm, there is a local "modern Mexican" restaurant here in Utah that is to die for. The reason why "modern" is because it is mostly healthy salads..... Homemade flour tortillas, pork barbacoa or chicken or shredded beef, black beans, Mexican rice, romaine lettuce, crispy tortilla strips, and the most amazingly delicious creamy tomatilla salad dressing. One of of my friends from my Gourmet club (another post) had actual recipes and served this when she was hosting the monthly dinner. Geared with these recipes and a more than willing sampling group in the Winger witches..... This is what I served. AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! (sorry too busy yumming to take pictures)


After feasting on "healthy" witches food, we made designer Carmel apples..... FUN!!! I had Carmel, semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate in a squeeze bottle, chopped pecans nuts, candy corn and little BLACK bats. I let each witch "at it" to create.




Ending up the brew-ha ha. We watched HOCUS POCUS... a Halloween tradition for me, a first for my mom (Nana), and a reminder of a great movie for all others.




FOOD.
FLICK.
FROLIC.
FUN!!!
****Witches attending.... Twinkle Toes, Sparkle, Michelle (mom to T.T. and Sparkle) my mom- Nana, sister- Kelly (visiting from Florida) and Crystal (my nickname for her is Beautiful- she calls me Gorgeous).... Mesa was a dog and stayed in the back yard.
