Eat, Drink and Be Scary

Today is the last day to enter for your chance to win 1 of 4 Flip camcorders. Details found here.  Remember, by answering the question at the bottom of this post you are adding an entry in my Flip Giveaway.

Don't forget to visit Better in BulkMama's Losin It and Mayhem & Moxie for more chances to win.

I decided to try to redeem myself and at least attempt to do something Halloweenish for my children.  A special thanks must go out to Laurie @ Tip Junkie for posting this idea......for we all know that I didn't come up with it on my own.

Mummy Dogs.



Kind of fun......and easy.  Just wrap hot dogs with dough and bake.

In case a photo wasn't enough, I even added video.

I know.  Amazing.  :)


Have you made any "scary" food this week in honor of Halloween?  If you have, be sure to go link up at Better In Bulk for extra Flip entries.

My last daily question is:  "Do you feel lucky?"

Winner announced on Halloween!

Yep, I feel lucky, but even better than lucky, I feel very blessed. Thanks for asking me--it's a great reminder.

Lauren said...

WHy yes, I do feel lucky! Well. More hopeful I suppose. But that's lucky too. :)

Timbo said...

Well, if my recent trips to Vegas have anything to say about it:

Nope :'(

Heh :)

Always!

Cecily R said...

I don't feel lucky at the moment...I feel tired. But not sleepy. Which is crummy since it's almost three and I have to get up at six. Yuck.

LOVE the creepy food. If only MY kids were LUCKY enough to have a mom who mummified their dinner. :)

latree said...

I hope you are lucky.
cute mommydogs :D

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

I DO!!! I DO!!!! I DO FEEL LUCKY!!!!

I need that camera to catch all the moments of my new baby. I can feel it. The camera gods are with me.

Melissa @ The Best Nest said...

Yes! Yes! Yes!
I managed to carve the hard as rock pumpkin today without losing any fingers so that's gotta mean something right?

Via said...

I'm hoping! I enter these things alll the time but never win anything. But I made a serious commitment this time, so I'm hoping I win!

Lori said...

I'm feeling lucky!

parentingBYdummies said...

Lucky? Um, no. I've never been lucky a day in my life, no need to start now. But, to counteract my lack of luck I am very good at planning. It's not as good as being naturally lucky, but it helps. My stinkin' brother sucked up all of our genetic luck. He sucks and he doesn't even know it. He's so dang lucky he actually looks like he's awesome. Grrr! In other news, I'm serving those mummy dogs @ my Halloween party. Great minds think alike:)

Annette D said...

Woohoo! Yes I do! I want to win the Flip.

We don't do the "luck" thing, so I would have to say that I am definitely blessed!

P.S. Love those Mummy Dogs!

tracey said...

Yes, I feel lucky in many ways. Everyday when I look into the eyes of my 4 kids.

Chrissy MacCEO said...

I feel lucky for sure! I'd really love it if my luck wins me one of these great cameras!!!

Jennifer said...

I've made those mummy dogs before. My daughter loved them. I'll have to try them again.

I WANT to feel lucky, alas, I don't. Hopefully that won't make a difference.

Peterson Family said...

I feel lucky each and every day! I am just hoping I am lucky enough to win one of these giveaways (finally!).

Ashley said...

I do feel very lucky ! I hope I win the flip !!

natalie said...

Oooh, YES! I'm really hoping I'm lucky! :)

Those mummies are cute!

Rachel said...

I feel lucky, but I'm afraid that I might have used up all my "luck" for this weekend!!

Kimberley said...

I am so lucky to be blessed with such a precious little baby boy, even though he wakes me up extra early every morning!

S Club Mama said...

That is SUCH a good idea. Maybe a good lunch idea today!!

Did you braid your daughter's hair. So cute! You should vlog about that and maybe I could do that to my own hair (excpet I cut it so I don't know if it would work).

Mayhem and Moxie said...

What?!?! I can't watch the video.

Hurumph.

After all that build up with the hotdogs and the dough too!

xoxo

Tiaras said...

only if my VERY picky little eaters would eat those adorable mummies!

Martha in PA said...

I've had a pretty good record of winning giveaways compared to how many I particpate in, and there is a penny outside our door that has been heads down for three weeks now... I'm not tempting the bad luck by picking it up. Someone told me today that if I pick it up and immediately give it to someone else that it will bring us both luck. I need to research that. that being said, bring on the LUCK, Mama wants to win her own FLIP!

Emily said...

According to my kids, I've made some scary food this week...but it wasn't intentional! :) And I only feel lucky when I am lucky!

Amy said...

I feel lucky...
Today is my little one's Birthday that is a lucky day right???

I love this idea..

Stu Pidasso said...

First, your kids are adoreable!

Second, ummmmmmm mummy dogs....(drool like Homer).

Third, I do feel lucky, but am not worried wether I win the Flip Ultra HD or not, becasue I feel Lucky anyway!

Thank you girls for putting this on, that Flip company got their money's worth out of y'all!

passions and soapboxes said...

Not so much lately. It sees like the only luck we have is bad luck. Long story.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Lucky. Hmm. I felt lucky yesterday. It's too early to tell today, so I'm just gonna say YES and hope for the best. ;)

Justine said...

Okay, totally cute and easy idea and obviously satisfied the kids too. The kids, btw who are ALL gorgeous!

Do I feel lucky? Nah, I'm probably one of the most UNlucky people you'll ever meet. But one can always hope for a change, eh?

Justine :o )

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

Yes, yes, yes! I feel lucky everyday! I have to remind myself sometimes but yep...lucky:)

Love the Mummy Dogs. Too cute.

Kelly Deneen said...

Those are totally cute! I may have to do that tomorrow for Delia at lunchtime.

I did not make spooky treats this week, but last week I made super yummy cookies. For each cookie, 2 ritz crackers, peanut butter between the crackers, dipped in vanilla/white chocolate coating, and with halloween sprinkles on top. Cute and yummy!

Joy said...

Those look yummy

and to answer you question, no I have been a slacker this week. I did make pumpkin shaped brownies last year with eyes and a mouth from icing-they were a hit with my son's 1st grade class

Jaysi said...

We made mummy dogs last year and I posted it on my blog too!! How funny!

Speaking of lucky...that was what my post was about today...did you read my mind?

Cheryl said...

well, yes... I feel lucky. :-)

Lolli said...

I love the kids' enthusiasm! I think I might make those for dinner tonight. Nice and easy and fun (before the trunk or treat!)

Honey Mommy said...

Those dogs are so cute! I wish I had thought of it myself because I could totally do that!

I DO feel Lucky... lucky in love and lucky in life!

(but winning a flip would totally make me feel lucky-er!)

CaJoh said...

Lately we have been cutting part of the hot dogs to make octopus shapes. We even put cloves in as eyes.

I have scary fingers cooking over at my place today:

Enjoy,

Emmy said...

Oh I feel lucky! The stars are all lining up for me.

Tomara said...

Lucky? No. Blessed beyond all reason? Yes.

I LOVE the older girl's hair in the video. If only my 6 year old would sit still long enough for me to practice stuff like that!

Mama Kat said...

Perfection indeed...can you do a gluten free version for us readers with specific needs?

My 5 Monkeys(Julie) said...

I have kids and family and so Yes I feel very lucky.

BeLoVed AiMeE said...

I do feel lucky. You see I have been blogging for over a year and never..never won a giveaway. And last week I won a gift card. So I'm thinkin this is my week too. Let the luckiness begin!!!

Kristina P. said...

Those are so cute!

Kacey R. said...

I'm so proud of you! LOL Those look super spooky! ;D

Sevibabyyy said...

I'm feeling as lucky as I can get. Today is going to be a good day. I've already survived one Halloween Party at work and day two is going to commence today. Lady luck has got to be on my side!

Rebecca1217 said...

Yes I feel lucky and blessed!

Grand Pooba said...

Heck yeah I feel lucky! I'm gonna win this flippy flip thing if it kills me!

Puna said...

Why yes I do!

Katie, Kevin and kids said...

Not usually ,but today YES!

Jeanette said...

Love the mummy dogs!
And YES I feel lucky! And though that might mean something different for my husband, for me it means that I'm seeing a new Flip camera in my future. Here's hoping.

Nicole said...

I feel lucky to have a good life, and two little babies hopefully joining our family....but as far as Vega's win kind of luck...never happens...LOL. But that's ok ;0) The bigger things are usually where I'm lucky and I'm banking on that these days.

Missy Litzinger said...

I feel lucky to be living another day. AND Grateful.

Swirl Girl said...

I stink at Halloween...but I do feel lucky. Lucky to be breathing.

B said...

I'm feeling lucky enough to win that flip camera! ;0)

I LOVE the hot dog mummy idea...I might have to run out to the store real quick and make them for dinner tonight!!

Susie said...

Those are so fun!!

Jen said...

Those are so cute and easy. I should totally make those with the kids!

And do I feel lucky? Yes.... well, I sure hope so. Oh please let me be lucky!!!!

Michelle said...

Ok, those are so cute mummy dogs and mummy dog eaters!

Do I feel lucky....NO! I never win cool prize!!! :)

Night Owl Mama said...

If I answer yes I may jinx my self if I answer no I will feel depressed. So the answer is
YES I feel lucky to be feeling lucky

Michelle said...

Well bummer. I guess that can't be my linkup for today then :) I love making those... from scratch, too!

And YES I feel lucky. I got a call from Trader Joe's this am saying that they had a donation another organization couldn't take, so I have snacks galore for the special needs preschool now. AND I got a run in this am. AND I was able to donate blood -- no low iron today. AND Little Miss is taking a great nap right now. AND I have a CF/GF trick or treating event tonight so Little Miss will actually be able to eat some candy this year. Darn skippy I feel lucky!

carma said...

whenever I win cool blog prizes - you betcha :D

Pam, mom, honey, said...

i wish I was on line more this week and could have entered. because my little camera is broke, actually both of them are. so now we are only using our phones.
i wish i had a camera to take a picture of the flaming candles on the birthday cake that i took to my husband at work

Lourie said...

Yes! Make my day please! :D

scrappysue said...

you don't sound anything like i thought you would angie! i was going to say that yesterday, but i wsan't sure if that was your voice! again, your kids are adorable, and i don't know how you find time to blog every day with 5 kids - AND drive them all to school. you're my LA drive-to-school hero!!!

oprah would say that luck is when opportunity meets preparation, anyway i most certainly feel lucky - PUNK!!!!!

(ok, i hope you got that movie reference!!!)

Michelle said...

I am feeling lucky today!

comichelle51 at hotmail dot com

Katie said...

Well not especially, been having a bout of bad luck lately, but over all for my whole life yes. The big things like having a wonderful husband and meeting him early so I didn't have to kiss many frogs and getting to have beautiful daughter...the really meaningful things are all in place☺

A Fancher said...

Always!

Mary said...

Things seem to be going our way recently. Everyone recovering from the flu, lice removed from house, survived baby shots...I guess I do feel lucky:)

marit said...

umm... those dogs look delicious! i need one!!! i'm feeling pretty lucky! and i really really want to win a video camera (am i in the right place). but do i want that more than one of those dogs... i don't know?!

BJ_Mama said...

YUMMY MUMMY! And I DO feel lucky, I'm glad you asked!

Jess said...

Well do ya punk?...lol..

Umm no I never win anything.... and prob wont this either...but I have been faithful in commenting every day this week on all the blogs as well as posting and linking from my own blog for each day there was a post theme.... so maybe just maybe...

I will get lucky and win. =)

kaye said...

those mummy dogs look fun and easy--and tasty.

kaye said...

I'm not much of a cook, but I cut the top off the candy and dumped it in the bowl. Does that count?

Jonathan and Gina said...

Yes, would LOVE to win a FLIP!

Jinxy and Me said...

YES! I feel lucky!

WILLOW TREE said...

I might just be the luckiest mom out here in the blogosphere. My children and I have been redeemed this year; God is good - all the time.

Blessings, Carolynn

Jessica said...

More so then usual!

Lin said...

Yup, I'm feeling pretty lucky today :)

leah said...

lucky, yes...but it took practice to be more optimistic...then strangely, i started to feel and be luckier.

Justine said...

Aw shucks, I just realized you don't have my new button :o (((

Justine :o )

Za said...

Yup...cos I stumbled on your blog when you first started the giveaway and been having quite a bit of fun. But more than that I feel blessed to have all the things I already have.

the bells said...

i hope so! either way, I am very blessed.

Meredith said...

I'm feelin' REAL lucky! Thanks!

Anne said...

I DO feel lucky!!!!

Amber, That's Me! said...

Cute Mummy dogs!

No, I do not consider myself lucky. I have entered several things lately and not won a one!

I feel like I have had a lot of crappy things happen in life so I feel like I have not been lucky.

But like the first person to comment, I do feel blessed. I have a wonderful husband and great son!

Tracy P. said...

I want a mummy dog! Totally cute! I should make those for dinner tomorrow.

I better feel lucky, because I didn't do any of the link up things. Only takes one entry to win, though, right???

Erin said...

I always feel lucky, I have the best husband and the most beautiful boys....that's my luck.

So I'll be even luckier if I win!

Laura said...

I do think I am actually very lucky. I don't win lot's things though but I have many blessings in my life. Cute video. The kids have grown so much and I love Emma's hair so much!

marfmom said...

Sure! And I feel hopeful and blessed. I've got a husband painting in the kitchen right now, working on things that will turn our trunk into the Starship Enterprise for Trunk or Treat tomorrow and our son sleeping in his crib. What more could anyone want (other than a FLIP, haha)???

Mindy said...

I will still feel lucky even if I don't win.. I will still have my wonderful friends and family AND I found a few more great blogs to follow along this great little journey! Thanks to you ladies for sharing this chance with us. I would feel super excited lucky if I won, though.. I mean, who doesn't like to win? ;)

Susie said...

Oh I KNOW I'm lucky! Just don't which kind I'll have today;)
Happy Halloween!!!
