This first one is my ambitious attempt to launch a series and get five of these buggers made this month. Each will have a different Halloween-themed treat. Because I'm a sucker for disgusting looking food? No. I just need an excuse to make fun desserts! Today's (well, yesterday's because, as I said earlier, I'm lazy about posting) tin contains the ever-popular Dirt-in-a-cup. Complete with two worms.

The meal went over fairly well. Colin pulled out his worm, covered in pudding, and had a look of pure disgust on his face. I wish I had taken a picture. He would not touch his worm until I had washed the pudding off. Even then I am not sure he ate it. The kids are so sick of peanut butter. I think we had it for lunch at least 20 times in the last month. Hard times calls for lots of peanut butter. I had better think of something else.
Here is my second tin to share - I did this back in mid-September. I was craving some hummus, so I used a muffin tin meal as a good excuse to get some. I served the hummus with veggies and pita wedges. I completely forgot about getting some flatbread (which I usually use with hummus), so I improvised with tortillas. I arranged them on a cookie sheet, brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled with seasoned salt ( I make my own - I mix equal amounts of chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, white pepper, black pepper, oregano, and salt and store it in a little shaker jar) baked them for around 8-10 min at 350F. Cut into wedges and serve.

Colin liked it though...
