My handy-dandy reference list of interesting recipies. Someone else created them, I just copied them here. I haven't tried all of them...yet. :)

The "Punch Rule Of Thumb": 1 quart (2 pints) of sherbert or ice cream per liter of soda

Stuff that's worked well:

Toxic Waste Punch    ....

  • Ingredients
    • ½ gallon of rainbow (mixed flavors) sherbet (= 2 quarts or = 4 pints)
    • 2 2-liter bottles of 7-Up or Ginger Ale
    • 1 envelope green Kool-Aid
  • Procedure
    • Put the sherbet in a 2-3 gallon bowl. Sprinkle the Kool-Aid across the top.
    • Slowly pour the soda around the sides of the sherbet. The soda will lift the Kool-Aid leaving delightful color streaks and sour flavors.

Eyeball Tacos   ....

  • Ingredients
    • 1 pound ground beef
    • 1 (1.25 ounce) package Taco Seasoning Mix
    • 12 Taco Shells
    • 1 (16 ounce) jar Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
    • 1 (16 ounce) container Sour Cream
    • 24 sliced pitted ripe olives
  • Procedure
    • Mix meat and seasoning mix. Shape into 36 (1-inch) balls; place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
    • Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.
    • Fill each taco shell with 1 meatball; drizzle with salsa.
    • Top with 2 meatballs dipped in sour cream. Garnish with olives to make "eyeballs."
  • My Notes
    • Part of a seasoning packet works well if a whole one is too strong.
    • In a time crunch, don't make meatballs, just fry the ground beef, and use a spoon to scoop two blobs of sour cream onto the taco.
    • Pre-prepped green olives with pimentos work as well as the black ripe ones - whole olives may be too strong, so try slices.
    • 5 kids can go through a dozen tacos before you blink. :)

Worms on Buns   ....

  • Ingredients
    • Hot dogs
    • Hamburger rolls
  • Procedure
    • Cut the hot dogs into thin slices - lengthwise - and score the edges (about three cuts per slice).
    • Boil or microwave until the slices curl like wiggly worms.
    • Serve three or four worms to a bun.

Stuff I either haven't tried yet or haven't made up my mind on yet:

Bug Juice

  • Ingredients
    • 1 big can green juice (example: Hi-C's "Tangergreen" that doesn't say "non-staining")
    • Sprite
    • Green Sherbert
  • Procedure
    • Combine green juice and sprite.
    • Float sherbert in middle
    • Serve

Putrid Punch

  • Ingredients
    • 1 13-oz. package lemon-lime Kool-Aid
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 8 cups water
    • 1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
    • 4 cups ginger ale
    • Worm cubes (ice cubes with gummy worms frozen inside)
    • 3 scoops orange sherbert
  • Procedure
    • Freeze "gummy worms" in ice cubes (several hours ahead)
    • Empty the Kool-Aid package into a punch bowl.
    • Add the sugar, then the water and stir until dissolved.
    • Stir in the orange juice.
    • Just before serving, add the ginger ale and worm cubes and float the scoops of sherbert on top.
    • Before long, the punch will be green and "infested with worms".

Swamp Water Punch   ..

  • Ingredients
    • 1 can frozen OJ concentrate - no pulp
    • 1 2-liter bottle lemon/lime soda
    • 1 half-gallon package of lime sherbert (= 2 quarts or = 4 pints)
  • Procedure
    • Mix all ingredients in a bowl about an hour before serving time. Add dry ice when serving if desired. This will become a brownish green color from the combination of ingredients, but will have a pleasant orange flavor if you can get past the looks.
  • My Notes
    • Normal OJ is not a substitute for frozen canned no-pulp OJ

Monster Toes

  • Ingredients
    • Cocktail wieners
    • 6-inch tortillas
    • Ketchup or mustard
    • Toothpicks
  • Procedure
    • Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut a wedge into the end of each cocktail wiener to make a toenail.
    • Cut the tortillas into strips about 4 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. Discard the ends.
    • Soften the strips in the microwave between damp paper towels for 10 to 30 seconds.
    • Roll each wiener in a tortilla strip and secure with a toothpick.
    • Bake for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven, then fill the toenail with ketchup or mustard.
    • Remove the toothpicks before serving.
