This year is proving to be an odd one, but we shouldn’t let that get in the way of enjoying our holidays! With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I would try and inspire you for your post-lockdown Halloween!
One thing I have always enjoyed for Halloween, is dressing up and going out. However, with that looking very unlikely I have decided I will be having a Halloween night in! Pumpkin spice, decorative pumpkins, fluffy socks, and scary movies! And the perfect addition... Indy’s hotdog mummies with sweet mustard dip! Fun and easy to make! This recipe is the perfect addition to a Halloween night in! See the recipe below provided by Indy’s Vegan Kitchen!
Vegan hotdogs (other vegan sausages would work too)
Ready rolled puff pastry
Splash of Soy milk
4 tablespoons American mustard
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons agave syrup
Slice approximately 5mm strips of the puff pastry and begin to wrap around halved hotdogs, crisscrossing as you go to create the bandage effect, leaving a little space to add the eyes (just a couple of blobs of tomato sauce will do!!) once cooked. Give the pastry a brush with a little soy milk and pop in the oven until the pastry is golden brown and the hotdog is piping hot. To make the dip simply combine the mustards and the agave and give them a good stir!
If you are going to any social gatherings with family or friends (whilst sticking to the rule of 6) it's very tempting to dress up and backcomb your hair to create those scary looking hairstyles....... and why not!?! Just be careful not to be too rough on the hair when trying to brush this out as breakage and damage can occur. Work you hair from the ends and tease out the backcombing before gently working your way up to the roots. If you do come across any particularly tough sections, some neat conditioner on the hair can help encourage the knots to come away. Wishing a safe and happy halloween to all. Have fun!!!!!!!
