Spooky treats from Giovanna Trimpe

Veiny eggs
Make a dozen hard boiled eggs by using a pot large enough so the eggs are not crowded when covered with water.  Add an entire bottle of red food coloring to the water. Add two tablespoons of regular salt and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and let stand for 12 minutes, and then place in the refrigerator.  When cooled crack each egg shell in many places but do not remove the shell.  Let them soak in the red water for another 2 hours.  Drain the eggs very gently.  Remove the shells and you will be eating brainy veiny eggs.

 
Wormy spaghetti (Devil hair spaghetti)
Cook and drain 1 pack of regular (not thin) spaghetti according to package and put back into the same pot.  Add 3/4 cup of homemade pesto (or store bought pesto is fine).  Add 1 teaspoon of purple food coloring and 1 teaspoon of green food coloring to the spaghetti and mix it in well.  Display in a white bowl to show off the dirty color.
