Scary Pizza Faces

1/2 English Muffin
1 Tablespoon pizza sauce
1 Tablespoon mozzarella cheese
1 olive
1 pepperoni
1 mushroom
1 tomato
1 pepper
1 onion

Spilt the muffin in half.
Cover half with pizza sauce and cheese
Decorate with tomato, onion, olive, pepperoni, mushroom and pepper.
Bake in oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Brains on the Half Skull

2 medium-sized potatoes
1 (8-ounce) package thin spaghetti
1 (14-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

With an adult's help, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wash the potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. Place the potatoes cut side up on a baking pan and bake for 40 minutes.

While the potatoes bake, prepare the spaghetti in a medium-sized pot according to the directions on the package. Then, with an adult's help, carefully drain the cooked spaghetti in a colander over the sink.

A few minutes before the potatoes are ready, begin to heat the spaghetti sauce (blood) in a small pot. With an adult's help, remove the potatoes from the oven. Then, wearing oven mitts, scoop out the insides of the potatoes. (You won't need the insides for this recipe.) The empty shells will serve as skulls.

When the sauce begins to boil, remove it from the heat and combine it with the cooked spaghetti to make brains. Put a scoop of bloody brains in each skull, take off your thinking cap, and enjoy!

Serving suggestion: Arrange your Brains on a platter of alfalfa-sprout hair!

Yield: Serves 4 brainiacs
