I am linking up with Mama’s Kat’s video prompt: “Show us how you prepare a favorite fall recipe.” One of her other prompts was to record a video of myself scaring someone, so in honor of Halloween today, here I am after my zombie makeover at the Doomsday Fair.

A Zombie in a Tunnel

My husband said I needed to watch some more zombie movies because I looked more like Frankenstein’s monster than a zombie. Um, they’re too scary. Just pass me the butternut squash.

Happy Halloween!

    That recipe looks awesome! I need a sharper knife, though. Yours just sliced through the squash like it was nothing!

    That recipe looks delicious and I’m totally with you – zombie movies are far too frightening to be used as research!
