Happy 2015 Halloweenies!

I hope you all are having a great start to the new year. I don't know about your neck of the woods.... but here around The Manor, the weather has been cold and damp (how delightful!) so I think some good, warm comfort food is in order today!

And there's no better comfort food than PIZZA!

This is a favorite recipe from blog posts past, and I think it's perfect for a frightful Friday night at home. Because everyone needs a good hot meal on a cold, creepy, winter night.... and this is perfect!

Disguises aren't just for Halloween. Surprise your family with these dressed-up, spooky-looking snacks any time of year. Kids looooove pizza and they can help by spooning the pizza sauce on the English muffins and making the mummy face with the cheese and veggies. The faces are so fun to make and the kids will eat 'em up!

~English muffins
~Pizza sauce
~Black olives
~Red or green pepper
~Cheese sticks or slices

1. Heat the oven to 350ยบ F. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin (toast it first, if you like).

2. Set olive slices in place for eyes and add round slices of green onion or bits of red or green pepper for pupils.

3. Lay strips of cheese (we used a pulled-apart cheese stick) across the muffin for the mummy?s wrappings.

4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.

Enjoy your Friday!
