October 22, 2012 by Leanne Vogel October 5, 2017I remember getting absolutely frantic the day of Halloween. Scratch that… I was frantic the days leading up to EVERY holiday. Besides making my costumes, I would consistently devise a Halloween treat plan that would help our crew (usually my best friend, my sister and her best friend) tackle each street with precision. No house was left unvisited. I knew which homes were lucrative and which were better left alone. Which ones most consistently tried to scare children, and the tame ones that wouldn’t jolt us too much. Regardless of weather, timing, or how old we got, Mom would always make sure that my sister and I left for trick-or-treating on a full stomach of something healthy. I guess her thought was that if she filled us up with a nice warm stew, we’d be less likely to gorge ourselves as we went from house to house. Moms, they’re always thinking! We’d enjoy a hot bowl of soup (it’s usually really cold in Alberta on Halloween), sloppy joes, shepherds pie, that sort of thing. I was always resistant to eat, a bit to excited about the evening ahead I’m sure. But had I been presented with an opportunity to carve a bell pepper and stuff it full of spaghetti, I think I would have been a bit more thrilled about the whole Halloween dinner experience. Heck, even as a 26 year old I enjoyed carving these faces and stuffing them with pasta. Who doesn’t like carving jack-o’-lanterns, common now. You can fill these peppers with just about anything. Pasta and red sauce, add some meat in there if you like, maybe some cheese… heck you could stuff them with meat and bake them like Jenna did here. I liked the whole spaghetti idea because it looks like guts. Kinda goes with the whole Halloween thing. Whatever you decide, eating a jack-o-lantern face is so ridiculous awesome regardless your age.
