Among countless amounts of candy, punch and other junk food we consumed on Halloween this year, we made these cute little brownies. Guess what? We made about 24 of them and we ate probably 5 of them, we just had too many treats. It was just fun to make these!

So we got hit with "The Flu". Whatever kind of flu it was we don't know. All I know is it was gross and I'm glad we're done. So here is just a picture of a really simple lunch thanks to the pokemon bread craft sandwich press thingy. Baby bel, grapes, carrots. Now to get busy with ideas for Halloween lunch...

First I oven roasted some vegetables. Potatoes, parsnips and carrots with some garlic. I then rolled out my barley crust and cut it into some cute leaf shapes. I placed some veggies on each leaf.
I covered each leaf with a matching pastry leaf and sealed the edges.
I baked the leaves until golden brown. They look cute right?
Conclusion: We had some yummy corn chowder to eat with these little pastries and I tell you what-we needed it. In the end these were pretty dry and not such a treat. They were okay with the wetness of some soup to go with it but probably not worth the effort and I most likely will never make these again. Why is it sometimes the cutest kinds of foods are just not the best tasting?

I can't believe there are just 5 days of school left. That also means 5 school lunches left. I wanted to make sure this week had great lunches since we won't be making school lunch again for awhile. So this is day 1. Includes bagel with cream cheese, dried cherries, jam in the penguin, corn chips w/ black bean dip, kiwi and cheese cubes.
