Avocados for Halloween!

I get a newsletter from the California Avocado Commission that always has cool recipes and tips. Like these for Halloween:

Use blunt scissors to cut fingernails shapes from avocado skins. Glue the shapes to carrots with a dab of cream cheese to create monster fingers for a scary centerpiece. (Be sure to tell your guests that the peels aren't edible.)

Put mashed avocado with a little lemon juice in a pastry tube and pipe ghoulish green garnish onto crackers.

Add a few avocado pits to a bowl of cold spaghetti and mix with a couple dollops of vegetable oil so it's nice and slimy. In a darkened room, invite your guests to feel the monster's "brains and eyeballs" by reaching their hands into the bowl. Very scary!

I always wanted to be the Kool-aid Mom....sigh.....
