Ghost Roast

This weekend we had a party
at the farm & one of the
biggest hits was roasting Peeps!

We did both pumpkins & ghosts
but the ghosts seemed to be the favorites.

Since they were so good...
we roasted a few more today.

They get all crunchy on the outside
and really soft & gooey in the inside!

Rocco likes them better cold.
He snatched one & made a run for it.

But very soon he came running back
crying & when we realized
why we had a good laugh.

Turns out Kate's chickens liked the ghosts too!

Before I go I have to show you the
cute lunch she made for the boys today:

That sister of mine even knows
 how to make peanut butter
sandwhiches irresitable! 

The boys gobbled them up!

Looks like fun! But that poor Rocco, with the chicken stealing his!

Marsha said...

What a great idea - I'll have to remember this one.

That chicken stealing R's ghost is hilarious :)

Was that chicken the mommy of the little chick he shook like a rattle? Cuz I'm thinking that may have been paybacks. A peep for a chick is what I say. And I think Ghost Roast is the best blog post title everrrrr! This was way cute!

Theresa said...

What a great idea! We are having a pumpkin carving party this week and I may just have to steal this... how far is your jurisdiction? LOL! We had a bonfire this weekend too but we had hot chocolate instead of roasted marshmallows (lame, I know) but we didn't have all of the ingredients for smores so as far as my kids are concerned the marshmallows would have been naked so no go! Say hello to Kate for me! Theresa xoxo

How fun! We haven't done this yet with Sweet'ums but now I'm thinking as soon as we have a cool night again and the hubby and his dad are off at the same time I might have to get some marshmallows (or Peeps!), some metal hangers, and mix up some hot chocolate for a fun night over at the in-laws' place.
Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day--it means a lot!

Karen said...

Oh, I didn't think about roasting peeps! How fun! I want one. :P

Debra@Common Ground said...

What a cool idea. I never heard of roasting peeps but that sounds even better than plain ole marshmallows.
Love the star sandwiches too. YUM

Hey Libbie, these look irresistable - and such fun for the kids! You and your family really make everything so special for them - look at that cute lunch with heart-shaped sandwiches - i want one too ;) Have a happy week!

Can do mom said...

So C-U-T-E! I know I'm going to love reading your blog because the photography is great, the subjects adorable and the writing hilarious! It looks like a fun time was had by all (except for poor little Rocco!)

We don't have a Ghost Roast but our family is getting together for our annual pumpkin carving, costume and soup party at my BIL's and SIL's place in the country on Sunday. I think I'm making my world famous (haha!) Italian Vegetable Soup. Mmmmmmm...

Blessings to you and yours!

Hot Peeps!! ;) Clever! I love it... must try to come up with a fire in the next few days... ;)

Seizing My Day said...

Oh PS... Absolutely LOVE the chicken running away with a peep!! would have loved to see that in person!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Fun times indeed. My kids would love this, even the 15 year old. Have yet to see any good Halloween candy in the stores around here and certainly no peeps to be found. :/ Congrats on your April shower ;) Best wishes, Tammy

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Aw these pictures are too cute. Poor baby I would of cried even louder with something like that stealing a bite of my peeps. lol
You and Kate sure know how to make life fun. Just wish your older sister Maggie would learn something too. heeehheee
Speaking of Kate has she started blogging again. I went by there not to long ago and she had not started back. I will check on her again.
I did make a circle of ghost today for my yard. Turned out ok! Wish your babies could come to my ole house trick or treating.
Loved my visit and now I want some peeps

Monica said...

Roasted Peeps -- that's great! Kind of brings roasting marshmallows into a whole new light. And the little sandwiches are so cute -- I love them!!

ilovemyhouse said...

This why ilovetheUSA, all that great stuff and traditions we don't have in Europe ( of course we have other great stuff, blue cheese anyone? :))
This looks like you had a lot of fun, as always!


Melinda said...

We just got a fire pit, Libby, so we'll have to try this out. I bet my teenage daughter and her friends would get a kick out of this (as if they need more sugar!) ;0)

Marla said...

I so want to be a sister. Please, please, please!! You guys just have way too much fun.
