Skull Head Pizza

1 can (any brand) prepared croissant rolls (or use your own homemade pizza dough)
Open can and lay out the entire package in a square and seal all perforations.
Cut dough into 6 long pieces which will cover each of the 6 skull head shapes. (Nancy uses a Nordic Ware Haunted Skull cakelet pan.
Press into pan leaving extra dough on each piece to cover over when filled with toppings.
Spoon about 2 Tbsp pizza sauce over dough
Place pepperoni, cooked sausage or hamburger over sauce
Add any other toppings of choice
Cover with cheeses of your choice
Lay remaining piece of dough over each skull sealing well
Bake at 275 degrees until nicely browned
Let set in pan 10 minutes prior to carefully removing from pan

Kid Friendly Pasta Salad

Use a colorful pasta in different shapes – the more color the better
Prepare pasta as per package direction; rinse and chill
While pasta is chilling cut veggies of choice into small pieces
Add vegges to the chilled pasta and coat well with dressing of your choice. (Nancy uses Olive Garden Italian dressing)
Chill salad for several hours
*Nancy mixes everything in gallon ziplock bags and then places in bowl when ready to serve
