#4439: The Halloween dinner

So I made "zombie chicken" last night. Basically it's crunchy chicken, but with a twist.

The coating is dead simple, two cups of French's fried onions (cheese flavored are best) and two tablespoons of flour. Crush the onions and mix well with the flour. Put that onto a sheet of waxed paper between the bowl containing a beaten egg, and the cookie sheet you plan to cook the chicken on.

The twist: add perhaps half a teaspoon of green food coloring to the egg and mix well. Dip chicken in egg mixture (careful not to get your fingers in it or they'll end up green) and then press into the crushed fried onions.

The result--after baking for about 20-25 minutes at 400--will be green chicken with a tasty fried onion coating.

I didn't want just plain salad, so while I was slicing the onion I dabbed it with red food coloring. After tossing the stained onions with lettuce I ended up with a simple salad that looked as if someone had bled all over it--hence, "bloody salad".

Baked potatoes--given some time to think about it I could probably have made them spooky, too, but we just had them plain. And for dessert, pieces of a giant chocolate chip cookie with a werewolf on it, in icing.

We had this for dinner, and watched Laughing Target, Mermaid Forest, and the first episode of 3x3 Eyes. Mrs. Fungus really liked Mermaid Forest.

And that was my Halloween. Not too shabby.

Okay, so now "Ebola Is Now 'Aerostable' And Can Remain On Surfaces For 50 Days" meaning that you're now looking at seven weeks before you can safely touch that doorknob that Dr. Dumbass or Nurse Nincompoop sneezed on. And for crying out loud, wear a gas mask to protect yourself from their spume should they sneeze within a fifty foot radius of you, because one droplet will be enough to give you ebola.

"...[T]hat means," the writer adds, "when they were so confidently declaring that they know exactly how Ebola spreads they were lying to us."

This government, lying to us? Say it ain't so, Joe! How can that be, when Obama's been President for almost six years?

I did not sleep well last night, and I'm starting to feel it. Zzzzz.
