Spooky Food-Related Costumery
A friend announced on Twitter that his wife is dressing up as the $700B bailout for Halloween. Brilliant! Why can’t I be that creative?
It’s been years since I cooked up a Halloween costume. Would I dare this time 'round? Only 10 days remain until the festivities; is there enough time to concoct a get-up that’s both spooky and food related?
Here’s what I’ve scribbled down thus far:
A farmed salmon that just flew in from Chile with a bad case of jet lag -- or maybe it’s the flu?
An ear of genetically modified (GMO) corn
Here’s one to do as a team: Go as FDA-approved cloned cow twins!
Your favorite partially hydrogenated oil, aka trans fat, the fat that keeps those packaged cookies, crackers and baked goods oh so fresh for...eternity.
A peck of three-month-old salmonella-contaminated jalapeno peppers
A McDonald’s Happy Meal. Smile!
A shrinking acre of U.S. farmland (to the rate of 2,880 acres per day)
A cheerleading squad for HFCS (High-Fructose Corn Syrup)
Got one to add to the list? Share your scary costume ideas in the comments area. And talk to me today at 1 ET for this week's What's Cooking.
