Ideal Meal for Frankenstein Friday

Frankenstein Friday is the last Friday of October:
Do you need a few ideas for a Frankenstein Friday meal?

Many Holidays are are associated with the color green. Frankenstein, Witches and Goblins are all associated with the color green. Holidays like Frankenstein Friday will always have green food in honor of the day. We will give you a few ideas for green food.

Soups, Stews and Chili

  •  Goblin Stew: all you need is foods that are green in color to make the stew green. For example: string beans, green beans, peas, broccoli, zucchini, turnip greens, collards, green onions etc. Cubed chicken is the preferred meat because it is easily turned green with a few drops of green food coloring. Potatoes are also required in the stew and will also absorb the green color.
  • Lizard Stew
popular green stew. It's the very same idea as the Goblin Stew except you need to make sure you add long strips of chicken in the stew so it looks like cooked lizards.

1 1/2 lbs. beef, cut into chunks for stewing
2 to 3 tbsp. oil
1 sm. onion, chopped
1 or 2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. comino
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Pinch of oregano
4 med. potatoes, peeled and cut up (can use more)
8 whole canned green chilies (2 small cans)
1 can tomatoes and green chilies
5 c. chicken broth
2 tsp. chopped jalapenos (optional)
Garnish: chopped cilantro, sour cream, or shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Heat oil in a 3 quart saucepan, add meat and brown. Add onion and garlic and cook over low heat for 5 minutes, covered. Uncover pan, raise heat to medium and stir in comino and pepper. Stir 2 to 3 minutes until onions start to brown. Add oregano, green chilies (optional jalapenos) and chicken broth.

Bring to a boil, cover and simmer slowly for two hours. Add potatoes and continue simmering for 40 minutes. Do not boil. Serve with garnishes.
