Halloween Food: Pumpkin Veggie Tray

I found this really cute idea for a veggie tray. It looks quick and healthy!

Pumpkin Veggie Tray

What you'll need:
A large serving tray or cutting board
1 large bag of baby carrots
1 cucumber
1 head of broccoli
1 carton of your favorite veggie dip
Ramekins or small bowls
How To:
Create an outline for your pumpkin by laying some of the carrots out in an oblong circle. Once the carrot outline is to your liking, carefully fill in the circle with the rest of the carrots.
Remove enough of the carrots to create a cucumber-filled smile. Set the carrots you removed on top of the other carrots within your pumpkin.
Place halved cucumber slices in the space you created for your carrot pumpkin's smile.
Fill your ramekins with the veggie dip and shimmy them into place where you want the pumpkin's eyes and nose to be.
Slice off the stem of the broccoli head. Place the broccoli at the top of your pumpkin.

    I love creative yet easy ideas. This is a really cute idea to get kids to eat their veggies too.

    If you like tips on designing a home with style of a budget, I hope you'll stop by. I see you are building a home. We built ours a little over five years ago. It was such a good time. Hope yours goes well.
