Spooky Stew & Bread Bones

Tonight for dinner we had:

We're in the middle of a crazy tropical storm here on the East Coast right now so it's been a downpour all week.  The wind shakes the house & it's chilly all around.  So, what a perfect day for stew right?  For this dinner, just make your favorite stew recipe.  Tonight mine consisted of stew meat, celery, carrots, red potatoes, & onions in a crock pot with a stew seasoning packet on low for 10 hours.

When it's getting close to dinner time, boil some potatoes & mash them until they are nice & creamy (add lots of milk & butter).  I used a pastry bag to pipe out little ghosts with my mashed potatoes & added olive bits as eyes.

For the bones, I just got some refrigerated bread dough, rolled it out flat & sliced it into long rectangular pieces.  I tied knots in each end & then baked them for 15 minutes in the oven at 375.  They looked like little bones.  My kids LOVED them.

Another fun, but easy dinner at the Potter house.  Enjoy.
