Halloween Mummy Pizza

Yesterday I was fighting the flu and thought it was the perfect time to hop online and search for some more Halloween-themed foods.  I found Mummy Pizzas that were easy to make and best of all we had all the ingredients... simply English Muffin halves, pizza sauce, pepperoni, cheese, and olives (I used green olives slices, but black olives would work fine too).  I made the mummies and Millard jumped in and made some monster fingers with cheese and green pepper fingernails.

I put it all in the fridge overnight and waited until morning to heat up the pizzas and transfer them to his lunch box container.  

Christian seen them this morning as I was packing it up and he thought it was the coolest thing.  Now to figure out what's on the menu for tomorrow...

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
