Halloween Silly Snacks

Another cute idea from Family Fun magazine.  This was perfect for a school snack for Halloween.  The apples are quartered with a piece removed from the back to cut out the seeds. Then I cut a section of the quarter out from the middle being sure not to cut all the way through the apple. So I ended up with the basic mouth shape. Then I poked almond slivers into the apples, some broke, but that only added to the spooky/ silly factor. The school required snacks from two different food groups, so I decorated mini rice cakes with gel icing to make bloodshot eyeballs.

The mummy dog is simply a hot dog wrapped with a crescent roll and then dotted with mustard, but you could use ketchup. I think putting a dab on with a toothpick would keep it smaller and more controlled.

One day later and we own four chickens. I think I am in denial.  My face says it all.

And so it Begins...

This is how it all started. I went outside to see what my cherubs and my husband were up to. Turns out the racket that I heard was them building a chicken coop out of some scrap wood. Why does one need a chicken coop when one does not have chickens? Chickens were not in the marriage vows. Really, I know I should have been more open to the idea, but somehow the city girl in me was NOT interested. I just walked away and left them to their own, thinking this was a phase that would soon go away, I mean how many chickens could live in that little space anyway?
