Which witch?

The Official Halloween Countdown says:

FIVE days left!

Which means we have 5 more days to crank out as many

Halloween:

ideas as possible.

Oh, the pressure!

So in order to ease our nerves (or mine, really),

feast your eyes on some edible witches  while I lighten up the mood with this

quiz to test your knowledge of movies about witches.

I will give you the quote and it will be your job

to tell me which movie it was in.

Are you ready for this?

(((First, check out the Fig Witches. They get sensitive when no one pays them any attention.)))

Okay, now for the fun part:

(answer key is on the bottom of the post)

Remember: No cheating, you cheaters!!

1). “Begone, before someone drops a house on you!”

2). To be sung as a rap: “Top that, top that, I don’t really give a about trying to top that. I’m hot and you’re not. But if you wanna hang with me I’ll give it one shot. Top that!”

3). “You’re terrible!” “No I’m not, I’m fabulous!”

4). “She’s a witch! She turned me into a newt!”

5). “Go to hell!” “Oh, I’ve been there, thank you. I found it quite lovely.”

6). “OK, here’s your motivation. You’re lost, you’re angry in the woods, and no one is here to help you.There’s a witch and she keeps leaving *bleep* outside your door. There’s no one here to help you! She left little trinkets, you took one of them, she ran after us. There’s no one here to help you! We walked for 15 hours today, we ended up in the same place! There’s no one here to help you, THAT’S your motivation! THAT’S YOUR MOTIVATION!”

7). “Now repeat after me — without wands please — repeat after me, Riddikulus.”

8). (chanting) “Witch! Witch! You’re a bitch! Witch! Witch! You’re a witch!”  “You think after three hundred years they would come up with a better line.”

9). “Watch out for the weirdos, girls.”  “We are the weirdos, mister.”

10). “I’m not a witch; I’m your wife!”

Well? How do you think you did?

While you still brew over some of those quotes,

here is the assembling instructions for the fig witches:

Fig Witches Recipe

Makes 6 witches

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 figs, cut in half
  • 6 GF/vegan rice crackers (I bought these)
  • 1/4 c. Daiya cheeze
  • 4 green olives, sliced
  • 1 tsp vegan cream cheese

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Drizzle Daiya on top of crackers, making sure it spills over on the sides. Place in toaster over and cook until melted and a bit crisp.
  2. Place the cracker, cheese side down onto the body of the fig. Place the top of the fig above it.
  3. Using just a dab of the cream cheese, lightly place it on to the green olive slices and stick them on the body for eyeballs.

Answer key:

1). The Wizard of Oz

2). Teen Witch (one of my all-time favs)

3). Witches of Eastwick

4). Monty Python

5). Hocus Pocus

6). The Blair Witch Project

7). Harry Potter

8). Practical Magic

9). The Craft

10). The Princess Bride

    I got all the trivia questions excpt Blair Witch Project (never saw it) and Witches of Eastwick (ashamed about that one) NOW I am hoping to make this cute little things for Ostara!

    March 15, 2012
    • And now I have a trivia question that you must answer for me: I must know what Ostara is!

      March 15, 2012
  2. LOL! I think I got most of them (but honestly, I had to pause to mentally do the voices for Monty Python and Princess Bride. “She turned me into a nyyeeewt!”) Very creative, those fig witches.

    October 27, 2011
    • Hahaha! Oh I wish I would have been there in your brain to hear your impersonations! Why does it always sound better in my head than when it comes out of my mouth, you know? And you got *most* of them??? I think we have our grand prize winner here, folks!!!

      October 27, 2011
  3. Such an awesome idea Cara! I love your creativity with food, it’s honestly inspiring and fun.

    I only got Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter and Hocus Pocus on the quiz. Bummer! Hocus Pocus is one of my favourite movies though so I got really excited when I saw that quote because I didn’t have to think too hard.

    Oh and – I’m not doing anything special with those apples. I made applesauce and that’s about it. haha. I just don’t have anything interesting to post this week.

    October 26, 2011
    • You are just in luck! I am handing out A+’s all day long for anyone who got 1 or more answers correctly. YAY for you! Now your GPA won’t be ruined… Thank you for your sweet words, Isobelle. It means a lot to me, especially coming from one creative food girl like yourself. And you hush about nothing interesting to post–I wanna see that applesauce now, dammit! 🙂 <–sorry, sometimes I get angry… You are one of the few people that I could read their posts everyday. So get on that, will ya???

      October 26, 2011
  4. LOVE these little fig witches – you are TOO CUTE! I bet they were really yummy too!
    Umm so I ADORED Hocus Pocus growing up – we watched it every Halloween – thanks for the fun movie quotes! 🙂 Monty Python and Princess Brides are super fun too!

    October 26, 2011
    • No “Teen Witch” Nora??? This is a *must*! haha. The best cheesy 80’s movie ever.

      October 26, 2011
    • No “Teen Witch” Nora??? This is a *must*! haha. The best cheesy 80’s movie ever.

  5. and here i thought i was the only Teen Witch fan! squeeeeeeeeeee!

    October 26, 2011
    • Jessy, live no longer in shame! This is hands-down the best movie of the 80’s (((unofficially))). It’s what got me through junior high and high school. And man, did I want her hair badly! (I’m kinda embarrassed to admit that when I did go to the hair salon, I would ask for the “Louise hair side-wings”…you know what I’m talking about…post “I wanna be the most popular girl” song)…

      October 26, 2011
    • Squeeee! Indeed.

      October 26, 2011
  6. I’m lame. I only got the Wizard of Oz and The Princess Bride. I SOOO can’t believe I didn’t get get Teen Witch. I’ve seen that a few more times than I’d like to admit, just not recently.

    Fig witches are fabulous!!

    October 26, 2011
    • Brad will be so disappointed in you, Dawn. tisk tisk. So will the short woman from “Sixteen Candles” and “Poltergeist”!!!!

      October 26, 2011
      • hehe…I love that little woman.

        October 26, 2011
  7. Haha. This is so fun and funny!

    October 26, 2011
    • I’m so happy to see your name!! Thank you for stopping by–I miss reading your posts–blog more often *please*! 🙂

      October 26, 2011
  8. The little witches are soooo cute!

    October 26, 2011
    • They are rather fun, aren’t they? And everyone says witches are scary….

      October 26, 2011
  9. i think i only know two.
    6. blair witch project?
    9. the craft, of course, my fave movie ever 🙂

    cute fig witches 🙂

    October 26, 2011
    • Well done with The Craft. I wasn’t sure if anyone really knew where that one was from. Bravo, Rachel!

    I’m going to my first Samhain this weekend. I might just have to make these!

    October 26, 2011
    • I just had to look up what a Samhain was 🙂 Oh, how fun–you should totally make these. A perfect appetizer for such an event, Marjorie!

    i appreciate how considerate you are of the witches feelings. what a good chef mother you are.

    October 26, 2011
    • Well Jan, it’s my duty to do so. One must consider everyone’s feelings and incorporate them in as much as possible. It’s what every good “6” does! I would hate to be haunted by the thoughts of “Do the witches like me? Did I do enough for them? Are they mad at me? Should I talk to them to clear the air? What did that look just mean?” hahahahahaha

      October 26, 2011
      • Jan #

        at least in this case if they look at you the wrong way you can just devour them! and then say through your tears.. . .”i just wanted to help you. . i just wanted to be your friend. . .”

        October 29, 2011
        • BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh, that is the funniest thing I have ever heard. Well done, Jan. Well done. *tipping my hat off to your humor*

          October 29, 2011
  12. Another brilliant Cara creation!!! I’m hyperventilating with the pop quiz though. I know Jack. Haha. That’s the only answer I knew 😉 The Witches Of Eastwick.

    October 26, 2011
    • And one is all you need in order to pass, so you WIN! A+ Woo-hoooo!!! If only quizzes were this easy back in the day in school…

      October 26, 2011
  13. These might be the cutest freakin’ witches of all time! Also, I am woefully under prepared apparently when it comes to movie witch trivia. I only knew 4 of them! I love Hocus Pocus! But my all time favorite witch movie is the 1986 version of “The Worst Witch.” Talk about strangely attractive. Hello, Tim Curry. It’s a horrible movie, really. But it wasn’t Halloween in elementary school without a visit from the VHS cart and “The Worst Witch.”

    October 26, 2011
    • PS, I think there’s a ghost in your cauldron… 😉

      October 26, 2011
    • The important question, Brooke, is did you get #2??? You were on my mind while I was creating this quiz and I kept thinking, If Brooke knows #2, well then, that just seals the deal (not that I really needed another reason…) And Tim Curry. Hello, Clue? LOVE. Never seen “The Worst Witch” though…

      October 26, 2011
      • We’re 0 for 2 then, I’m afraid. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Teen Witch, though it looks like it’s up my alley. It’s got rapping AND witches for Pete’s sake! I wonder if I can get it from Netflix before Halloween…

        October 26, 2011
        • You are definitely in for the ride of your life! Hahaha. It’s so horrible, it’s fabulous–one of *those* movies. Tell me if you find it on Netflix and I will bring the popcorn and crash your Teen Witch party! Then we can rap all night long…

          October 26, 2011
          • You can’t get it streaming right now, but they do say they have the dvd if you’re on that plan. ABC Family usually shows it around Halloween.

            October 26, 2011
            • 10am Sat Oct 29 ABC Family. Set your dvr 😀 I’m assuming that’s EST, but IMDB doesn’t say.

              October 26, 2011
            • Whaaaaaaa??? Dawn, you are my little angel for saying this…

              October 26, 2011
              • ❤ I'll send you an address for leftover candies 😉

                October 26, 2011
                • I had a feeling that candy would be an expected exchange here… 🙂

                  October 26, 2011
        • The Sister #

          Oh man! Brooke has NEVER seen Teen Witch?!?! Too bad. Girl, you’re missing out!

          October 28, 2011
          • Brooke IS missing out! (not the Brooke you know, Sher–but another very super duper cool Brooke!)

    I, too, flunked the quiz. I’ve seen 7 of those 10 movies and got about 5 right. Well, everyone hates an over-achiever anyway. Those witches are adorable. Now, if I could ONLY get my hands on some fresh figs (she’s been saying for several years now) and some soy free cream cheese…maybe some motivation… I think I’ll just call one of those white gloved servants over.

    October 26, 2011
    • hahaha! “Everyone hates an over-achiever.” Hilarious!!! You are too funny. Do you have a Sprouts Laurel? I thought they just opened one relatively close by, no? That is where I bought the figs yesterday–not sure however if they will be in Dallas, though. Worth a shot! Or you could use pears… You’re screwed on the soy free cream cheese though… 🙂

      October 26, 2011
      • you could use some cashew goat cheese. it’s not quite the same as cream cheese, but it goes well with figs.

        October 26, 2011
        • Brilliant!!! LOVE that suggestion–way to go, team! 🙂

          October 26, 2011
      • Laurel #

        There is supposed to be a Sprouts around here somewhere but seriously as high as gas prices are I’m not driving an 1 1/2 each way for figgy witches. Now figgy pudding might be a different story. Never made that. Hmm…First I owe you an email but you have to email me first because I don’t have your email address because I didn’t see an email address on your about me page. Now I’m hyperventilating! Seriously, email me tomorrow. Please.

        October 26, 2011
        • The Sprouts is like 20 minutes away from my sister who refuses to drive that far. I swear, you Texans. I shook my head at her with disgust. She is not the person I once knew. I mean, growing up in southern California, you expect to drive AT LEAST 45 minutes to go anywhere. At least. What has that state done to you people??? haha. Okay, okay, stop yelling at me Laurel, I’m emailing you right now… gesh! P.S. my address is on the bottom but I will still email you 🙂

          October 26, 2011
  15. Fig witches! These make me want to have a fancy Halloween party. (Figs are always fancy in my world.) The Daiya hair is way too cute.

    October 26, 2011
    • Shall I bring the tea and croquet? (that is what people do at fancy parties, right? Eat figs, drink tea and play croquet in the backyard?)

      October 26, 2011
      • Laurel #

        You forgot the badminton.

        October 26, 2011
        • Dangit! I knew I was forgetting something. Leave it to Laurel to remind me 🙂

          October 26, 2011
  16. Those are the most tasty looking witches I’ve ever seen. Too cute! I failed at the quiz, I only got about two. Apparently, I need to watch more movies!

    October 26, 2011
    • Don’t feel too bad Amanda, some of those were really hard! I would have done poorly (and this girl has seen A LOT of movies!)

      October 26, 2011
  17. I shall be cast from the coven…..

    October 26, 2011
    • I just talked to the witches, Jeni, and they said that surprisingly, they are a little more forgiving than one would think. You are off the hook for not getting the Harry Potter quote, but they said if you don’t bring their favorite dish at next month’s potluck, then you just might be cast out. There’s always a second chance, see?

      October 26, 2011
  18. Oh…..and now I feel worse for not getting Harry Potter – I knew I knew that quote but just couldn’t place it….

    October 26, 2011
  19. Oooh I love the little fig witches but I suck pants at your ghoulish little quiz.
    1. Wizard of Oz
    3. Witches of Eastwick
    4. Holy Grail
    8. Pratical Magic

    WHAAAAAAA!!!!
    I feel shamed, witches around the world will snub me.
