Halloween Lunch

apple bites
carrot-finger food
spider crackers
pizza mummies

I was excited to put together a themed lunch but still have quite a few healthy options. Plus Ben loved the novelty of the carrots and apples so he ate them all, quickly. This is a MAJOR deal in our house.

Apple Ingredients
slivered almonds
Apple Instructions
1. Quarter and core an apple. Cut a wedge from the SKIN SIDE of each quarter.
2. Press the slivered almonds in place for teeth. This is tricker than it seems. I only ended up with 2-3 apples at the end.
Carrot Ingredients
veggie dip
sliced almonds
Carrot Instructions
1. Fill a serving bowl with the veggie dip.
2. Wash and peel the carrots. Cut them to the appropriate size based on which finger they represent. Cut a flat, shallow notch in the tip of each carrot. Use a dab of the dip like glue and attach a sliced almond fingernail atop each notch.
3. Stick the fingers in the dip and serve with other carrots on the side.
Cracker Ingredients
ritz crackers
peanut butter
pretzel sticks
Halloween sprinkles
Cracker Instructions
1. Spread half of the crackers with peanut butter. Cover with the second cracker for the spider's body.
2. Insert 8 pretzel sticks into the peanut butter layer of each sandwich for the legs.
3. Spread more peanut butter on top and decorate with sprinkles.
Pizza Ingredients
english muffins
pizza sauce
black olives - sliced
string cheese sticks
Pizza Instructions
1. Heat oven to 350.
2. Toast the english muffins and then spread pizza sauce on them.
3. Set olives in place for the yes.
4. Lay strips of string cheese across the muffin for the mummy's wrappings.
5. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.
