Halloween is only a few weeks away! Do you have children who still need costumes? Or maybe you just got a last-minute invite to a Halloween party? Don’t worry, we’ve got some great costumes that you can put together in a flash.
Cereal Killer – If you like word play, this costume is for you. Buy several small boxes of cereal. Cut small holes in the boxes and glue a plastic knife in each hole. Then glue the boxes onto a t-shirt. You can add fake blood to make it even more over the top.
Bubble Bath – You can make a splash with some balloons, shower cap and loofah. Blow up white or clear balloons and safety pin them to a white t-shirt. Put on the shower cap and carry the loofah.
Costume Not Found – This one is great for the tech crowd. Write the words “Error 404: Costume Not Found” on an old t-shirt. Voila! An easy and clever costume.
Back to Basics – Traditional Halloween costumes are a great option! You can cut eye holes into an old sheet to be a ghost, get a witch hat, or use heavy-duty toilet paper to create a mummy costume.
Smartie Pants – An old pair of pants and a bag of Smarties candies are all you need for this costume. Glue packages of candy all over the pants and you’re good to go! Don’t you feel smarter already?
Formal Apology – Break out the fancy clothes for this one. Wear a suit or cocktail dress and make a sign that reads, “I’m sorry.” The more extravagant the clothes, the better.

2 tablespoons olive oil
12 ounces uncooked shrimp (peeled and deveined)
½ teaspoon salt, divided
1 medium shallot, diced
¼ cup chicken or vegetable broth
¼ cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
3 tablespoons drained capers
2 tablespoons butter, diced
Lemon slices (to serve)
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and season with half the salt. Cook the shrimp until it turns pink and is slightly undercooked (about 3-4 minutes). Remove the shrimp from the skillet with a slotted spoon and set aside for later. Add the shallot to the pan and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Then add the broth, wine, lemon juice, pepper, and the remaining salt. Simmer for 5 minutes. Put the shrimp back into the skillet to finish cooking. Cook for 1 minute, or until the shrimp is completely cooked. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the parsley, capers, and butter. Serve immediately (once butter has melted) over the pasta of your choice, rice, or zoodles and top with lemon slices.
