Happy Halloween!

Tale of Two Sisters and Their Kitchens | Ghosts in the Graveyard

Happy Halloween! I have been busy today getting Saul's and my costumes ready for tomorrow. We are going to meet my sister and go trick or treating and then go out for pizza with the kids. So I thought I should do something "spooky" for our supper. I just made a very simple hot dish (casserole for those not of the Minnesota region). I call it Ghosts in the Graveyard. I saw something like it in Taste of Home magazine but couldn't find where I put the book! So I just did it my own way. Saul thought it was hilarious! I love making silly meals for him, it gives me so much joy when he sees silly food on his plate.Such simple little things creates lots of laughter out of my sweet boy! Hope everyone will have a "spooktacular" Halloween! Be safe!!!!!

Ghosts in the Graveyard


  • 1 lb. extra lean ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 medium potatoes cubed
  • water for boiling
  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1/8 cup milk (more or less)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked Peas for the eyes and mouth
Put potatoes on to boil. Meanwhile, brown ground beef, onion and garlic until cooked through. Add vegetables and continue to cook for a couple of minutes. Stir in soup and milk and heat through. Salt and pepper to taste. After potatoes are fork tender, drain and coarsely mash with the butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Spoon mashed potatoes in about 1/2 cup increments into the prepared ground beef and shape with two spoons to look like ghosts. Add the peas for the eyes and mouth.

I only made three ghosts because there is only the three of us, but you can form as many as you would like!
