For dinner the first night we made pizzas. For the grown ups we had pizzas topped with spinach and feta cheese. The girls made their own mummy pizzas. For the crust we used the Robbie's thin crust recipe and substituted spelt for the flour. I had never made my own pizza crust... so there was a bit of a learning curve... but I think the end result was delicious.
Here is Sara rolling out the dough for our wonderful creation.
We topped the pizza with a can of organic pizza sauce, grated Italian cheese blend, red onions, olives, spinach, and last but not least...some feta crumbles.
Then the girls made their own mummy pizzas:
Finally they wrapped them up... sprinkled them with cheese and added olives for eyeballs. Who knew eyeballs could taste so good! We baked them at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes and then Wah-la... a tasty mummy.
The next morning I made some Pumpkin pancakes for breakfast.
I forgot to bring my recipe... so I was forced to improvise a bit... but I think that they came out rather nicely...and yes I am bravely posting a morning photo of myself here...
For dinner the second night I made up a pot of spaghetti sauce in the crock pot. I just threw together some cans of diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste with onions, garlic and herbs from my garden. We talked about cooking up a pot of Bouillabaisse with perch caught from the lake... but we just didn't get around to it. The girls did have a fun time catching fish, however!
We also made spooky shadow puppets and carved pumpkins. All in all it was a great time!
