Week 8: Scaredy Cat and The Mummy. This week I sort of ran out of time and energy, I have been working a lot, but I came up with this to finish up our Halloween themed lunch series. Its pretty simple but hopefully she will like it.
I used the standard Romaine lettuce for the background. It works well for Halloween because of the darker parts. For the ground I threw in some Craisins because they are pretty healthy and my daughter loves them. I used the apple moon again because we are almost out of apples and it works well for Halloween.
I cut the "Scaredy Cat" out of bread and used Nutella to darken it up. For the red eyes I cut up bits of strawberry.
For the Mummy, I used a hot dog and pizza dough. I got this idea from Family Fun magazine and have used it before. You can use breadstick or pizza dough from the cylinder shaped can at the supermarket, roll it out, and cut it into 1 inch strips. You then wrap it around the hot dog to look like a mummy. Bake it in the oven at 375 for about 14 minutes. For the eyes, I like to use mustard because it looks good and goes well with the hot dog.
