Lunch time fun!!

it's halloween time and what could be more fun than surprising your kids with a little fun in their lunch boxes too?! put a little BBBOOOOO!!! in your kids day! i promise, easy and super fast, you can do it between, dinner, laundry, bed time or in the morning before you head out the door.

Ghostly Sandwiches

white bread (2 slices)
cream cheese/peanut butter
jelly (your favorite)
ghost cookie cutter/ or you can free hand if your

cut bread slices with cookie cutter, layer your cream cheese or peanut butter and then jelly, put slices together and make eyes and mouth from raisin pieces. come on admit it, anyone can do that right!!

edible eyeballs

carrot peeled and cut in to 1 inch rounds
cream cheese
black olives, cut in half

place carrot flat side down, place a dab of cream cheese in the center and top with olive piece!
ta da!!! spooky, eyeball goodness!!

ok... so i admit this next one takes a little more time due to the fact you have to hard boil an egg or eggs, depending on how many goblins your feeding, but well worth the extra time, for a protein packed lunch time treat!

edible eyeballs take two

1 teas mayonnaise
1/2 teas mustard
salt and pepper to taste
the amount of ingredients is based on 1 egg, adjust accordingly to how many you are making.

Place an egg in a small saucepan and cover it with cold water. Bring it to a boil and cook for one minute, then turn off the heat. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain the hot water and run cold water over the shell. Then peel the egg and slice it in half lengthwise.Scoop out the yolk into a bowl and mash it with the mayonnaise, mustard, and a pinch of salt. Spoon the mixture back into the egg white halves and top each with a ripe olive.
