Halloween Lil SpatulaMonday Mayhem: You start off strong ready to conquer the week and by the end of the day you wonder if you’ll even make it to Wednesday. Sound familiar? Part of this feeling comes from being conscious of everything you have on your “to do” list rather than the task at hand. So start the week of by listing your “to do’s” on a daily basis then let it go so everything can fall into place and happen. At the top of the list is probably what you need to pick up or make for dinner. As we welcome a week we know will end in screams – rightfully so – let’s kick-off some Halloween fun that will also encourage your kids into the kitchen.
Here are two simple Mighty Mummy dinner ideas to kick off this Monday …and maybe even repeat before you go Trick o’ Treating. “Playing with your food” never tasted so good …er ghoulish.

Mummy Pizza

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Open your English muffin and spread some pizza sauce on it. Let the kids do this – they’ll loved it!
  3. Next, give each mummy two eyes using the black olive slices.
  4. Lastly, use to cut the mozzarella cheese slices into strips. Again, it doesn’t have to be perfect. The kids can lay them over the top of the crust.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Enjoy 🙂

Mummy Dogs

Mummy Madness Monday 2

Ingredients:

Mummy Madness Monday 7

  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 can prepared dough of your choice
  • mustard or ketchup, for serving

Mummy Madness Monday 9 Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F
  2. Roll out the dough very thin, then use a pizza cutter to cut skinny strips of dough.
  3. Wrap each hotdog. Leave a little bit of open space around the “face” of the mummy. Keep wrapping in a crisscross pattern until covered. Let the kids do this, it feels sticky & fun. Repeat, then lay them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or baking mat.
  4. Bake 18-20 minutes, until the dough is nice and golden brown.
  5. Use a toothpick to make ‘eyes’ with mustard or ketchup, admire, then enjoy 🙂
