Halloween night is always hectic in my house.  I always make something quick and easy for dinner so the kids can get dressed and head out for some trick-or-treating before it gets too late.

I also look for recipes that aren’t just quick and easy clean up should be quick too.  I sure don’t want to come home to a sink full of pots, pans, and dishes after spending a couple of hours trekking thru the neighborhood toting bags bulging with the kids’ Halloween haul!

I’ve found 3 easy to make recipes I thought we’d try one of them this year, it will be a change from the plain meals we usually throw together.

This Jack-O-Lantern Tamale Bake from Woman’s Day uses boxed cornbread and takes less than an hour to make.
