Halloween Goodies

Yesterday the house suffered! I hardly did any cleaning. Instead I spent the ALL day in the kitchen. I canned some green beans from the garden, made sugar cookies, whipped up some royal icing, and after watching a YouTube video on it I made some meringue ghosts. The house may have suffered but it was worth it!

 While baking some sugar cookies I made some eyeballs out of royal icing
Then, once the cookies had cooled I iced them with some thinner colored icing. While the eyeballs dried I watched a YouTube video from the Joy of Baking and learned how to make meringue ghosts. I just had to try it! Here they are baking...

and here they are all done...
Aren't they cute?

Then it was time to add the eyeballs and details to the cookies! 

I love how they turned out! We made up some plates for the neighbors and still have a ton! I just may have to send some with Dan to work tomorrow. Now I need to make and can some applesauce and pie filling from the boxes of apples we got from the in-laws last weekend. That is....once Emma decides to let me put her down for more that 5 minutes at a time. :)
