Eyeball Soup with Bugs… Anyone?

Happy Halloween!

Sweet treats have been abundant to celebrate the fun of Halloween, so I decided to incorporate a bit of the gross-out factor that Halloween usually encompasses into our dinner last night. Martha Stewart’s folks came up with this icky-but-yummy soup idea that I re-named Eyeball Soup with Bugs.

Before you get too weirded out by the idea, I should tell you that it’s really just a nice, tomato soup with cheese and olives that are manufactured to be the ‘eyeballs’ and ‘bugs.’

Traveling bugs across the surface of your soup full of eyeballs… isn’t that what everyone hopes for on Halloween night?

You’re guaranteed to be dubbed the *cool* adult in the neighborhood if you serve this up to visiting children. Chilly day outside? Instead of offering kids a hot cup of cocoa, consider doling out mugs of tomato soup with an eyeball and a bug. Nothing but fun there.

Happy Trick or Treating tonight! We’ll be following Harry Potter around our neighborhood (if we can manage to keep up with the sprinting from house to house). A glass of wine might just have to accompany our journey.

    The eyeballs are adorable! I love this because it’s kid-friendly but still simple and elegant – all of the things a Halloween dish should be, whether you’re serving children or not!!

    Lol such a cute idea. I can’t say I’ve ever wanted to eat an eyeball, but this post is definitely making me want to reconsider. Tasty soup…I’ve yet to make a tomato soup from scratch! Happy Halloween :) !!
