Okay, we've had an appetizer and a spooky lunch treat...how about a dinner meal that your kids will LOVE to not only eat, but will love to make, too!!! Here's a spooktacular dinner that everyone will everyone running to their "mummies"!!!
1/4 C lukewarm water
1 T yeast
1 1/2 T sugar
Mix above ingredients and set aside for about 5 minutes (they should start to fizz)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 T vegetable oil
1 C lukewarm water
2 1/2 - 4 C whole wheat flour
1/2 T dough enhancer
1/2 T gluten
10 cheese sticks
1 jar prego spaghetti sauce (or favorite pizza sauce)
10 green olives (cut each in half)
pepperonis and sausage (if desired)
Mix together the salt, vegetable oil, water 1 C of flour and dough enhancer and gluten. Add yeast mixture and mix. Add flour until dough is just "not sticky" to the touch. Knead dough for 8-10 minutes or until it is very stretchy. Divide into 10 evenly-proportioned dough balls. Roll into very thin circles (my kids loved doing this). Cover with spaghetti or pizza sauce (we used Prego and it was delicious!). Let kids pull apart string cheese into strips. Lay each half of the green olives on the pizza for eyes. Lay down pepperoni or sausage. Layer string cheese in strips over the rest of the pizza, being sure to cover everything EXCEPT the eyes of the mummy. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes...your kids will LOVE this activity!!!
By the way...my current cookbook has ALL of the insider food items and many of the recipes on this blog from the beginning. The rest of the foods on the blog are going into another cookbook that I will probably have done by the next summer. I came up with new recipes to keep the blog going and so that I had new recipes for my family. The current cookbook has MANY WONDERFUL basic recipes like cinnamon rolls, brownies, cookies, many different breads, pastas, breakfast items, etc...over 250 different recipes. The next one will have many more recipes (beyond the basics) and also probably include a holiday section for each different holiday.
