creepy food week day 2

Welcome back to the second installment of Creepy Food Week! Did you check out last night’s dinner? It was pretty creepy. But tonight’s dinner, oh tonight’s dinner was brought to you care of zombie Tracey. Yes, my house was invaded by zombie’s and dinner was all about BRAINS!

Tonight’s dinner: Brain loaf, with a side of  sliced tongue and mashed eyeballs, and brain cake for dessert.

Which is zombie speak for meatloaf with my special secret sauce, sliced beets and mashed potatoes decorated with black beans.

Mmmm yum! Underneath all that blood, er special sauce, is my homemade meatloaf shaped like a brain. My meatloaf is my daughter’s absolute favorite meal though I cannot tell for the world why as I am not a meatloaf fan myself, but she requested a meatloaf meal. She just didn’t know it would come in the shape of a brain.

How did I shape this to look like a brain? In my Halloween stash was a brain-shaped Jello mold that I picked up last year after Halloween super cheap. I pressed the meatloaf mixture into the brain mold and let it sit in the fridge for 10 min before placing it in a baking dish for cooking. It turned out lovely, all veiny and bumpy under that…sauce.

Dessert was an extra special and sticky brain cake.

A perfect meal for zombie’s. Bellies were filled, plates were emptied, nothing left but a bit of brain gook in a puddle of blood and a lone fork.

I hope you enjoyed the second installment of creepy food week! Tomorrow I’ll post a quick tutorial on how to make the brain cake. Super easy and super fun! Can you tell what it is made from? Hint: it’s probably a childhood favorite of yours. Let me know what you think it is in the comments below!
