All smiles

Monster Eye Balls (garlic toast with waterbottle lid dipped in blue food coloring)

Frankenstein Soup 
1 lb. Split Peas
2 Carrots
Small Onion
2 Cloves Garlic finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Chopped Fresh Spinach
1/2 Tsp. Seasoning Salt
1 Tsp. Italian Seasoning
8 Cups Water

In a large soup pot on medium heat add oil and heat. Add carrots, onion and garlic and sweat them for about 5-10 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn down to low and simmer for at least 40 minutes. (I started this during nap time and just kept on low until we were ready for dinner.

Frankenstein Soup and Monster Faces (complete with a watermelon mouth)

Moms can have fun! Dylan wanted me to have a third eye.

Dylan enjoying his horrific dinner.
