Halloween goodies

This is what I served for lunch yesterday. My 2 year-old couldn't believe I was putting candy on his sandwich. He kept looking at it like it was too good to be true!

I wrapped up a little treat for my first grader to surprise her at lunchtime...
She got a cute jack-o-lantern pin, nestled in some fall leaf confetti.

Mummy Wraps
Before going out trick-or-treating, we planned to take our kids out to see a matinee showing of Ratatouille. We wouldn't have much time to stop and eat before going out trick-or-treating, so I made these Mummy wraps (chicken in a blanket style). I started with a triangle from those Pillsbury crescent rolls. Then I cut slits along the sides, formed a head, filled with chicken salad mix and wrapped it all up, alternating sides (kind of like you do when you are braiding hair.) I used cloves for eyes, which should be removed before eating. (I forgot to tell my husband and he bit into one!) I think these mummies baked for about 12-13 minutes on 375. It worked pretty well...I wrapped them in napkins and put them into snack size ziplock bags. My husband snuck them in his coat pocket and we ate them while we watched the movie

I just used canned chicken (in a hurry), mayo and thyme. If I made them for adults only, I would also add diced onion and celery.
