Mummified English Muffin Pizzas
Ingredients:
English muffins, lightly toasted
Marinara or pizza sauce
Sliced black olives
String cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a baking sheet, lay the English muffins. Then, add one tablespoon of marinara or pizza sauce to each muffin. Use two slices of black olives for each muffin, to make the mummy’s eyes. Place strips of string cheese under the olive slices, to resemble mummy bandages. Bake in the preheated oven for 7-9 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Cantaloupe slices, cut each slice into 8 pieces

Bloody Popcorn
Ingredients:
10 cups of plain, unseasoned popcorn, popped
½ stick of margarine
½ teaspoon of red icing color
