Halloween is a fun time for kids, with the trick-or-treating, parties, and other activities to take part in. But Halloween isn’t just for kids. Adults like you and me can have fun on All Hallows’ Eve, too!
Even if you aren’t fond of costume parties, you can still get your family and friends together to enjoy a relaxing time together, especially since we have a super long weekend to look forward to at the end of this month. Read on as we share with you some of the things you can do on this Halloween weekend…
Scream Your Lungs Out with a Horror Movie Marathon!
The funny thing about people is that we love to scare ourselves. Well, then, Halloween is definitely the best time of the year for you and your loved ones to get a good scare. And one very effective way to do that is to watch a bunch of horror movies.
Do a quick online search for good horror movies and draw up a list of movies to watch as early as now. After all, All Hallows’ Eve is just around the corner. And don’t forget to prepare something to munch on for your horror marathon as well. Other than the usual popcorn and chichiria, you may want to grab some SLERS chicharon, too.
Unwind with an Intimate Cocktail Get-together
Sometimes the only thing it takes for you to relieve yourself of stress and recharge is some quiet time with the people closest to you. You may want to take the opportunity to get these people together during the long Halloween weekend. A relaxing cocktail get-together should do the trick. Here are some snacks you can prepare for the occasion:
No, of course we’re not suggesting that you eat someone named Bob! What we are suggesting is a simple yet delicious treat for you and your guests this Halloween—Brie on Bread.
All you need to do is buy your favorite French bread, cut it into bite-sized pieces and then put a slice of Brie on each piece of bread. Voila! You have a tasty treat for your cocktail gathering.
This is the ultimate go-to treat, especially when you don’t have to think about your menu too much. After all, who doesn’t love pizza?
Choose two or three flavors and have each pizza sliced into bite-sized squares so your guests can easily enjoy it during your get-together.
3. Mini Sandwiches
Make sandwiches as you normally would and then slice each sandwich into four to make bite-sized versions. Yes, it’s that easy to prepare good food for a cocktail gathering with your loved ones!
We suggest you whip up sandwiches using your favorite loaf of bread, cheese, and SLERS ham—a concoction that’s simple yet mouthwateringly good.
4. Pie Crust Dippers with Banana-Nutella Dip
You may buy any brand of refrigerated pie crust you want. Roll it out, cut into your preferred shapes using cookie cutters, and then bake for about 10 minutes (until edges are golden brown).
Puree two medium-sized bananas and then mix it with half a cup of Nutella and eight ounces of Lite Cool Whip. Enjoy!
5. Bacon and Parmesan Pasta
Yes, you’re just having cocktails, but you can’t deny the fact that Filipinos will always appreciate something heavier than finger food at any gathering. So, to satisfy guests who may want a heavy snack to go with their drinks, you may want to prepare this flavorful pasta dish.
You may use either rigatoni or farfalle for this dish, which is easy enough to prepare. Simply make white sauce and then throw in the cooked pasta and some parmesan cheese. Add some SLERS bacon (cut into small pieces) and greens (basil or parsley) for added flavor.
These are just two suggestions on how you can enjoy your super long weekend this Halloween. Remember, Halloween pica-pica doesn’t have to look like ghosts and ghouls, and you don’t have to be in costume to have a proper Halloween get-together. What’s important is for you to have a good time with the people you want to spend this occasion with.
And in case you just want some alone time during the upcoming long weekend, then why not plan a quick weekend getaway? For a day trip, you could bring SLERS ham sandwiches to keep hunger at bay. For a trip that’s a bit longer, you may want to bring SLERS chicharon, banana chips, or peanuts to munch on throughout your vacation. Whatever you choose to do and wherever you choose to go, have fun!
