Pick a Pepper Pumpkin

 Let's enjoy some veggies and dip with a cup of tea, shall we?  My friend Pat, from Gypsy Heart and Soul shared this adorable Halloween idea, which you can see here.  I just had to try it out for myself.  My friend, Marsha, from The Better Baker  sent me this pretty towel which I'm using for my table covering.  Isn't it perfect with this teacup?  My mums are still looking good!  Yea!!

This Royal Albert Woodland Series teacup that my friend Rosie gave me from her late Mother's collection, looks right at home on the towel/table covering.

Pick A Pepper Pumpkin

A cute appetizer for a Halloween Party!

INGREDIENTS:

  • A pepper(s) of your choice of color(s)
  • An assortment of raw veggies
  • Your choice of vegetable dip

INSTRUCTIONS:


  1. Carve a face into your pepper with a paring knife to resemble a jack-o-lantern.
  2. Fill with an assortment of raw veggies.
  3. Serve with dip and enjoy!




I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

  1. Brilliant! Much quicker to do than carve a pumpkin, heehee.
    I wonder of you could use peppers similarly to make tealight holders? ~
    Electric tealights only, or you might get 'roasted peppers'!
    Anyhow I'm thinking your idea would be a great way to get the grandchildren to munch raw veggies. Just need some grandchildren to try it on ;)

  2. How cute is that? What a great way to get kids to eat healthy veggies. I might just do this for me and Hubby on Halloween!

  15. What I really noticed Kitty is that you figured out a way to print recipes right from your blog. Brilliant! That will come in handy for those of us who want to try your delicious recipes! What a great idea.
    And oh, that waterfall in the background always looks so soothing. It makes a lovely backdrop for your outdoor teas. Your teacup is new to me -- very nice for fall.
    It was 80 here today in Michigan, and will be 80 again tomorrow. Kind of strange to be so warm, especially when I saw a Christmas commercial on TV tonight. Seems they start earlier every year! Have a wonderful week. Love, Deborah

  45. What a cute idea! I love festive ideas like this....would be cute for school party.... For a 3Rd grade party (many years ago...), I carved 30 oranges to look like pumpkins and we filled them with ice cream! Lol! Your peppers ate a healthier alternative! Live that sweet little teacup too! So pretty!!
