Halloween Recipe-- Spooky Stew

I have a recipe called Pot Likker Stew that's particularly ugly in appearance, but delicious in taste. It's similar to the famous "Seven Year Stew" in concept, but this one came from my grandfather, who lived through the Great Depression and never wasted anything. When you're cleaning up the leftovers from a meal, toss the beef, vegetables and their juices into a freezer container. Keep saving these tasty leftovers layer by layer until the container is full. Heat it up, season if necessary, and you have a free --but ugly-- stew. Adding the mashed potato ghosts and some cheese would definitely improve the visual appeal. LOL!

Every party needs a few savory offerings to balance the snacks and sweets. Turn a favorite stew into a ghoulish delight with this ghostly garnish. Spoon servings of stew (or soup) into individual serving dishes, filling about two-thirds full. Using a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip, pipe hot mashed potatoes into a ghost shape on top of each serving. Use capers for ghost eyes, and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese around the base of each ghost.
