Frankenstein chicken wraps

Can you tell that I have had a LOT of fun coming up with these themed lunches?!  I really have!  My girls have loved it too.  Not only are we having fun making lunches together, but they are actually eating all of their lunch every day!  I call that a mom win since I have made sure that each meal covers each food group.  This meal was one that I felt like patting myself on the back for.  I got my daughters to eat spinach.  Yes, you read that right.  Spinach.  The Frankenstein chicken wraps are made with spinach tortillas and my girls ate them like they were the best things on the planet!

For this lunch, I cut up some leftover chicken that I had made for dinner another night into strips and put it in the wrap with some shredded cheese.  It was like a chicken burrito because of the spices that I had on the chicken previously.  I folded it up and then cut some cheese to make hair, eyebrows and lips.  Last, I cut some olives for the eyes, and cut cheese and olives for the bolts at Frankenstein’s neck.  To attach the bolts, I used toothpicks.

While you are at their Facebook page printing things off, you should also enter for a chance to win the Rubbermaid LunchBlox system for yourself.  They are giving away 8 during September, so you have plenty of chances to win! Be sure to check back tomorrow for my last spooky lunch idea!

Mummy Hot Dogs 2

I am continuing my Halloween themed healthy lunches today with an oldie but a goodie, Mummy Hot Dogs!  (Oh, and before I forget, if you are loving the Rubbermaid Lunchblox containers that I have been using, be sure to go enter to win one of 8!  Head over to the Intermountain Live Well Facebook page to enter now!) When we were planning the meals that we would want to add to our week, my daughter asked if we could please try this one out and both of my girls gave it two thumbs up.

Mummy hotdogs

To make the mummy, you will need hot dogs, crescent roll dough, and some spooky candy eyes.  I preheated the oven to 375 degrees and then started putting the mummies together.  I found the easiest way to make the mummy wraps was to use my pizza cutter to cut strips and then I wrapped them around the hot dog one at a time until it was covered up.

Mummy Hot Dogs

Place the wrapped hot dogs on an ungreased cookie sheet and then bake for 9-11 minutes.  Once they are slightly cooled, add the spooky eyes for added effect.  Serve the mummies with a side of ketchup and some fresh fruits and veggies and you are good to go!
