Halloween nightmare before christmas kids lunch
Week 7: A Nightmare Monday!  I decided to do a Nightmare Before Christmas because it is one of mine and my daughter's favorite Halloween movies and we just watched it again.  This week was pretty simple.

As always, post your comments for me and let me know the best way that you have found to hard boil eggs and peel them.  Any tips and tricks to it?  Remember to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  Check out my vdeo tutorials on YouTube as well.  Have a "Nightmare" of a week!






Ingredients:

1 frozen slice of whole wheat bread 
   Yellow, blue, and red food coloring and/or food coloring markers
6 red grapes
2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
1/2 Tbsp. fat-free strawberry cream cheese
1 serving grape jelly
1 round slice of white cheese 
2-3 leaves of romaine lettuce

1 small piece of nori (dried seaweed)

Directions
  1. Cut swirly hill out of a slice of frozen bread.  Cover swirly hill with grape jelly.
  2. Cut small slice off the back of each hard boiled egg so they will lay flat.  Trim both slices into ears for Zero the dog as shown in picture.
  3. Mix equal parts yellow, blue, and red food coloring in a small bowl to make the color black.  Dip the end of a toothpick in the black coloring and use it to draw the details on the two hard-boiled egg faces (Jack and Zero).  Place small dab of strawberry cream cheese on Zero’s face for his nose.
  4. Using small scissors, cut the nori into the shape of a small girl (Sally), similar to the one in the picture.  It doesn’t have to be exact, just do your best!
  5. Place lettuce leaves in the container as background.  Set circular slice of cheese in the middle as the moon.  Put in the swirly hill in the bottom right corner. Place the two eggs as shown.  Set the girl above the hill, as if she’s standing on it.  
  6. Lay the grapes along the bottom in a line.  If desired, cut a few of the grapes into cross shapes like tombstones.

  1. Boil your eggs in water to cover them, when it starts to boil put a lid on and turn OFF the burner leaving the pot on the stove for 15min. Your eggs will turn out perfect. And with no green color around the yolk either.

    1. Thanks so much for the advice. I will definitely try that next time. I struggle with this process of hard boiling eggs for some reason, but your way looks pretty simple!

  2. This is AMAZING!

    you can get little "eggs" that change colour to let you know when the egg is done, it also tells you the stages of "doneness"!

    In regards to peeling, I have no tips. I just make a HUGE mess :)
