Walking Dead Watch Party


Happy Sunday, I hope you have been enjoying yourself this October.  I've been spending a lot of quality time wrapped in a blanket watching scary movies. Speaking of scary... one of my favorite shows Walking Dead started up two weeks ago and I hosted a small watching party. The menu included meatballs, chicken wings, and mac and cheese.  This was not a weight watchers meal by any means, but we enjoyed ourselves. 

What is a party without decorations?  “Those who arrive survive” is a saying from the show and was written on my chalkboard.  Nothing says rotting dead body better then a black crow. 


We finished off the night with some zombie zin and it wasn’t half bad.  I found this bottle at Kroger and was super excited. I can't wait to reuse the empty bottle.  If you don't have a Kroger near you, World Market also sells it along with other Halloween wines.

 

For dessert, we had dirt cups which is one of my favorite Halloween treats from my childhood. The quick and easy recipe is provided below.
