That is a casserole.
A plain ol', boring casserole, that I'm sure tasted perfectly lovely. It was completely edible and might have gotten an “oo” or an “ah” or maybe even an “mmm” a few times through the meal.
But it's nothing special.
Add some of these, though? Some completely innocent veggies that don't really mean anything on their own?
And you get something way more fabulous:
THAT is what will be remembered. It doesn't matter if maybe it could've used a bit more cheese or maybe the corn had been in the freeze just a little too long and lacked flavor. It was an edible monster! And with Halloween right around the corner, you really have no excuse not to have some fun with your own.
It actually had different teeth to begin with. I tried making separate teeth and it looked ridiculous. Then again, I'm not sure it looked much better after the modification, but I thought it helped.
And even Mom got in on the action with some monster nose-picking.
Yes, I come from a very, very mature family. I'm obviously breaking my mother's heart here by playing with my food so much. :P
