Have you ever had a banana peanut butter sandwich (An open face sandwich is seen here.), or even just a banana and peanut butter anything? It's one of my special treats I like to make (and eat!) every now and then. You can sprinkle on some chocolate shavings or drizzle on some honey for an alternative flavor. Try it out sometime.
So I just experienced my first Halloween in Japan, which lasted for the entire weekend.
To start off the excitement, I entertained hundreds of little kids at a country side kindergarten for a day. I felt like Mickey Mouse.
Below is a photo from Rabbit Hole, a cool English conversation cafe. So, little kids know the word Halloween and the older kids like the costume parties, but how about trick-or-treating? I have yet to find out about that.
Here's some ingenious ideas for Halloween party snacks:
#1 Mochi Eyeballs
Dab a little black sesame paste on a ball of sticky white mochi to make the most delicious eyeballs you've ever eaten!
#2 Jack-o-lantern Onigiri
Somehow, you make the rice orange like a pumpkin. Cut out the shapes of eyes and mouths to wrap everything into a cute or scary jack-o-lantern!
