1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls
6 hot dogs
1. Unroll dough from can as one piece. Cut dough with pizza cutter into narrow 1/4-inch strips.
2. Cut two slices in the hot dog to make arms. Cut down the middle to the bottom of the hot dog to make legs.
3. Wrap the hot dog loosely with the strips of dough over the arms and legs.
4. You can leave the mummy face open so it peeks through the dough.
5. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden in color.
Cooked spaghetti with your favorite red sauce
4 Raw bell peppers - Green, Yellow, Red, Orange

2. Using a small paring knife or pumpkin carver, cut the top of bell pepper and scoop out the seeds and lining.
3. Cut out eyes, nose and jagged teeth to resemble jack-o-lantern.
4. Stuff the noodles into the peppers and pull out noodles through the face holes.
1 red apple
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1 package mini-marshmallows
1. Take an apple quarter and slice it lengthways in half and then half again.
2. Spread each slice of apple with peanut butter on one side, red skin outward.
3. Place mini-marshmallows on top of the peanut butter as the teeth. They don’t have to be perfect, crooked teeth are best.
4. Place another apple slice on top with peanut butter so the red apple skin looks like lips.
