Halloween Chili


Best made during the last phase of the moon; if that is not possible, just do the best you can in a softly lighted kitchen after dark.

Substitutions are in parentheses.



  1. Brown the gizzards in an iron cauldron over a fire made from the siding off of a haunted house.
  2. Add chopped eye of cyclops and simmer until the pieces of eye become translucent again.
  3. Add blood of bat and soft shelled beetles; bring to a slow bubbling boil.
  4. At this time, add the common weed, maggots, toenails, sumac, grubs, hemlock, eye of newt and the pureed wasp. As it cooks you may want to adjust the consistency with pond water. You can tell it is done when the eye of newt swells and the vertical tan colored "cats eye" appears on one side.
