One of my favorite shows on television as of late is Shark Tank. I don’t know a whole lot about what it takes to build something from the ground up (does this Halloween Fruit Dip count??!) but I do know that I deeply admire and respect those who spend their lives trying to make a business from it. I’m so fascinated by those who have the entrepreneurial spirit, especially the kids who come onto the show. I marvel at those young ones who present their brilliant invention or product (that has already earned them a boatload of money) and their confidence. I find myself watching and wishing that was me as a kid. I wish that I had a vision as an entrepreneur at that age. I wish, I wish, I wish…
Then I realize in that moment that while these kids were brainstorming business plans and marketing their product to reach more hands and earn them more money, I was busy with paint pens in my hand, making personalized gifts for my friends; I was busy making spooky and creepy props for my homemade Haunted House display for Halloween; I was busy designing games for the grandiose carnivals outside of my house (that ended up looking more like shabby cardboard boxes and duct tape balls with signs made from computer paper…but that is besides the point).Print

I look at my body of work here on Fork & Beans and see that I am actually doing what I, even as a kid, always wanted and felt created to do: Explore my creativity in all ways, even if it means cutting up fruits into Halloween-inspired shapes and dipping them into a rich coconut yogurt mixed with peanut butter.
This post has been a part of the month-long blogging event, celebrating vegan food called VeganMoFo.
How do I make Halloween shaped fruits? Love your site! thank you!
Stock up on lots of fun mini Halloween themed cookie cutters <3
Very fun way to make fruit fun and still have a healthier Halloween. Pinned.
I’m supposed to be getting your posts via email but haven’t gotten any over the past week. This makes me sad since you always have great Halloween ideas. Do I need to re-subscribe? Thanks!
Hi Emma! No worries–you are still subscribed but the format has changed a little (one was sent out this morning so check to make sure you got it). Instead of an email every time a new post is up, you will be getting a newsletter email with a recap of the previous week 🙂 This is just to de-clutter your email up a little PLUS, you will be receiving fun tips, tricks, and goodie giveaways just for subscribers, hooray! If you ever want to just keep up with what is newly published at the same time, note that Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings are when I have new recipes out. Much love and thank you for being so excited to get my posts! Means the world to me…xo
Well Im up early 4:00am and looking at your post you can make your food recipes look so good, mine do not look like yours(all your halloween recipes), Im still not feeling well and of course g.i. problems too. Have a good one.
What are you doing up so early?? You are an hour and half ahead of me 🙂 Hope you are feeling better!!
Yum! It would be cool to add some green food coloring or kale/spinach juice to make this like “slime” (Or maybe red for blood?) Love your nails, by the way. 🙂
Audrey, you are SO my people! Love that idea <3
