Five Star's Halloween Party Checklist

Five Star's Halloween Party Checklist

<!–[CDATA[At Five Star Senior Living, we invite residents into our senior living communities not just to live with us, but to thrive with us.  Throwing a party can be a great way to fulfill the social dimension that encourages positive interactions with others in our Lifestyle360 Wellness Program.  From getting together to prepare fun foods & beverages, to making festive decorations, throwing a party is a fun way to create lasting memories!


Halloween is a great holiday where it’s ok to be over-the-top and get creative!  
We love this recipe for these savory, yet scary, Mummy Dogs:


Mummy Dogs


1 sheet puff pastry
8 sausages, meat or vegetarian
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon water
Mustard (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.  
Roll out sheet of puff pastry and cut into ½ inch-wide strips.

Wrap one sausage with 1-2 strips, leaving space for the face.  
Wrap one more strip on top for the head!  

Combine egg and water in a bowl and brush over pastry to glaze.

Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown.  
Cool slightly and use mustard to draw a pair of eyes on each mummy.
