Halloween WORM Sandwich

Halloween WORM Sandwich

Can you tell how much I am enjoying the Halloween month??

Yes! I am a BIG fan of Halloween and I’m not afraid to admit it! It’s the perfect time of the year when I could make food that looks dead, gross, bugged or dismembered.

Ykaie and the kids are enjoying it too! They weren’t even grossed out by these WORMS in their sandwiches. They actually loved it and they couldn’t get enough

You know, the other day, I just got contacted to be featured in a magazine. Can you believe that? And it was  fashion magazine. They said their theme for the next issue was about food and travel. I was kind of expecting someone to come out from the back of my door screaming that I just got played but nobody did.

I was shocked.

They were asking me to bring some clothes and accessories with me.

Truth is, I don’t have anything other than shirt and jeans in my closet. I don’t use any other bag than my trusted camera bag…

AND…. I. don’t. wear. shoes.

Okay, so what does that tell you about my fashion sense? Yes. It is zero, nada, zilch.

So in line with this surprising self-discovery, I am listing my first EVER New Year’s Resolution: Update your wardrobe, Peach. Buy something other than shirt and jeans.

Oh I will. I just hope the next time I go to the mall, the cute Halloween decors, dinnerwares and candies don’t get to my money first…

Alright busy moms, just like the SEVERED FINGERS I did last year, here’s another thing you can do to hotdogs and ketchup which I’m sure you always have at home.

Make this squirmy Worm Sandwich.

You might hear a few eeeeeewwww sounds from your little ones but once they’ve tried this, it’ll be replaced with mmmmmm.

Halloween WORM Sandwich
  • 8 Chicken Hotdogs
  • Hamburger Buns
  • 2 tbsp banana ketchup+1 tsp soy sauce OR 3 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  1. Cut each hotdog lengthwise into 4. If you want thinner worms, you can cut into 6. {photo below}
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet and fry hotdog strips until it curls.
  3. Mix ketchup and soy sauce, and gently stir into curled hotdogs. Or if you’re using barbecue sauce, just gently stir the sauce with the hotdogs
  4. Toast hamburger buns in the oven for a few minutes, you can put sliced cheese then put some of your curled hotdogs.
  5. It would seem like they were worms and would shock the kids..or your guests.

    First, congratulations on being featured by the magazine.  That’s so cool.  :)  You’re so creative.  I love these worms sandwiches.  hehe…I bet my kids would be super excited to try them too.  By the way, I think shirts and jeans are so comfortable.  I think 90% of the clothes inside my closets are shirts and jeans. hahaha…the 10% are more formal and decent ones and some dresses.  But I wear the jeans and shirts 99% of the time.  hehehe….can’t wait to see what you’re going to add into your closet.  Will you share?

      Banana ketchup or banana sauce is a popular Philippine condiment made from mashed banana, sugar, vinegar, and spices. Its natural color is brownish, so it is often dyed red to resemble tomato ketchup. Banana ketchup was made when there was a shortage of tomato ketchup during World War II, due to lack of tomatoes and a comparatively high production of bananas. (from Wikipedia)
