Call of Cheesethulhu

Do you like looking at pictures of specially-styled party food? If not, you might want to skip this post! If so, read on!

This weekend I hosted my irregular-but-regular Arkham Horror board game night. If you are not familiar with the game, it is a co-operative game (meaning, all the players work together for a group win), set in the universe of USian horror writer H. P. Lovecraft.

So I served some appropriately Cthulhu-themed foods (which basically means a lot of tentacled-looking stuff). Like a Cheese-thulhu ball! With crackers! Covered in turkey bacon bits, pecans and green onions.

And a Vegthulhu! Rising from the sea guacamole.

And here is the Cthulhu army of hot-dog cephalopod minions!!!

And for dessert? Well here are always cupcakes... cupcakes topped with Cthulhu's evil visage (aka a marshmallow chocolate cookie), minty wings and tentacles formed from chocolate Twizzlers.

And then we played the game, which, as you can see, takes a little doing (thus the food-fortification.)
