Day 22: Mummy Pizzas

A friend of mine had made these mummy pizzas and I thought that it was such a cute idea.  We were going to a Halloween celebration with Big Bub's preschool, so I decided to bring these as my potluck dish.  The kids loved them!


  • English muffins (I used 12 whole wheat ones)
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Sliced Olives (for the eyes)
  • String Cheese

Step 1:
Split the English muffins in half and lay them on a baking sheet

Step 2:
Put pizza sauce on the English muffins

Step 3:
Add olives to the English muffins for the eyes

Step 4:
Shred the string cheese and layer it on the English muffins to look like a mummy.  Cover a portion of the olive eyes to make it look more like a mummy :)

Step 5:
I wasn't sure how long to bake it and at what temperature, so I Googled it and most sites said to bake them at 350 for 10 minutes.  I think that I had to actually do around 12 minutes.

Day 21: "Funny Bones"

I did not make these "Funny Bones" this year, but I had pinned the idea.  We had a Halloween party with my MOMS Club group and one of the moms made these.  They were really tasty.  I think that white chocolate with some pretzels is a winning combination!

To get the recipe and see some photos go here to Epicurious :)


p.s. I'm taking a break to go and shower!

Day 20: Fall/Halloween Photo Shoot

In October we did a Halloween/Fall photo shoot by Resolution Photographics.  I think the pictures turned out really cute of my boys!

Day 19: Halloween Ideas

I had pinned 50 Simple Halloween ideas from Tinkerlab and was planning on doing one of them, but you know my story.  This has some great ideas and some of them can be done all year round.  Check it out!

Day 18: Pumpkin Patch

One cannot miss out on going to a pumpkin patch in October!  We went to a new one that was just a few miles from our house.  Even though it was small the boys enjoyed it and we got some pumpkins.  Here is the Little Bubs riding the tractor that they had.

Day 17: Pumpkin Dip Bowl

I didn't do this idea this year, but I did it last year and I was happy with the results.  Take a small pumpkin (sugar pumpkins are a great size) and scoop out the insides of it.  Then you can fill it with your dip straight into the container or if your container fits, which mine did, you can just put the container in the pumpkin.  Serve with some veggies :)

Day 16: Mummy Dogs

Making mummy dogs was on my plan for Halloween, but I didn't get around to it.  I actually made them in January, but I forgot to take some pictures.  I have had some friends do these before and that is where I got the idea.  I did an internet search and found the blog Our Best Bites who gives a tutorial on these.  They also have a great picture of what they look like.
