decorated straws for sipping their Halloween Brew.

After carving a pumpkin, rinse the seeds and remove any remaining
pulp. Pat the seeds dry. Mix the seeds with several tablespoons of
melted butter and a dash of Worcestershire Sauce. Spread out the
seeds on a cookie sheet and sprinkle them with salt. Bake in oven at
350 degrees, stirring occasionally, until the seeds are brown and
crispy. Allow the seeds to cool on paper towels before serving.
Cut a 7-inch cheese log into 1-inch sections.
To make each ghost, cover a cheese section
with a 5-inch square of plastic wrap, leaving
the bottom part open. Insert a popsicle stick
up into the cheese. To complete the ghost,
drape two white facial tissues over the cheese
section "head" and tie a piece of white yarn
around the "neck". Then use a black felt-tip
marker to add a face. Makes 7 cheese ghosts.
