As far as I’m concerned, pre-Halloween planning kicks off the holiday season in our house. Truth be told, this is my Christmas season, too.
I simply relish every day between now and Dec. 26, when I slip into immediate post-holiday depression. But until then, it’s fun, fun, fun
Halloween falls on Saturday this year so celebrations are bound to be big! Spending is expected to top $6.9 billion, according to the National Retail Federation. Adult spending on costumes now outpaces spending on children’s costumes proving I’m not alone in loving this spooky day.
And I am never short of ideas when it comes to Halloween. I plan to post a new recipe or party idea every day this week for Halloween. I am stoked.
This dip isn’t just fun, it is absolutely delicious! Try it. You won’t be sorry.
Sundried Tomato Spider Web Pesto Dip
1 (8-ounce) block of cream cheese, softened
2 ounces feta cheese crumbles
½ cup jarred pesto sauce
Half an (8.5 ounce) jar julienned sundried tomatoes
1 fake spider for the center
French bread to serve
Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature on the counter for an hour or so. Then stir it with feta cheese until well combined.
Spread the mixture on a medium-sized round plate. Smooth pesto over the top.
Use a toothpick to draw a spider web into the cream cheese. Slice sundried tomato pieces as uniform as possible to make a web. Then use those slices to craft the web on the pesto.
When done, place a fake spider in the middle of the dip. Serve with French bread to spread this dip.
