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.  ðŸ™‚

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.

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

    Nope :'(

    Heh 🙂

    Cecily R says

    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. 🙂

    Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge says

    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 says

    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 says

    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!

    parentingBYdummies says

    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:)

    4 Lettre Words says

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

    P.S. Love those Mummy Dogs!

  9. 16

    Jennifer says

    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 says

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

  11. 54

    Kimberley says

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

  12. 55

    S Club Mama says

    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 says

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


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

    Martha in PA says

    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 says

    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!

  16. 75

    Stu Pidasso says

    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!

    Ryan Ashley Scott says

    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. 😉

  18. 78

    Justine says

    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 😮 )

    Sherri @ Luv a Bargain says

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

    Love the Mummy Dogs. Too cute.

    Kelly Deneen says

    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!

  21. 81

    Joy says

    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

  22. 82

    Jaysi says

    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?

  23. 97

    Lolli says

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

  24. 111

    Honey Mommy says

    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!)

  25. 114

    Tomara says

    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!

  26. 117

    BeLoVed AiMeE says

    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!!!

  27. 120

    Sevibabyyy says

    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!

  28. 125

    Jeanette says

    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.

  29. 126

    Nicole says

    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.

  30. 129

    B says

    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!!

  31. 131

    Jen says

    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!!!!

  32. 132

    Michelle says

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

    Do I feel lucky….NO! I never win cool prize!!! 🙂

  33. 151

    Night Owl Mama says

    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

  34. 152

    Michelle says

    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!

    Pam, mom, honey, says

    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

  36. 156

    scrappysue says

    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!!!)

    have a fun saturday!

  37. 158

    Katie says

    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☺

  38. 160

    Mary says

    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:)

  39. 161

    marit says

    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?!

  40. 163

    Jess says

    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. =)

    WILLOW TREE says

    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

    Za says

    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.

  43. 201

    Amber, That's Me! says

    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!

  44. 202

    Tracy P. says

    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???

  45. 203

    Erin says

    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!

  46. 204

    Laura says

    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!

  47. 232

    marfmom says

    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)???

  48. 233

    Mindy says

    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? 😉

    They look like they’re doing a great job! I have a fight with my two and a half year old, she tends to eat the toothpaste, and then moltsy brush her tongue, but she’s fiercely independant and doesn’t like mummy to help. I might start doing it while she’s asleep !!

  50. 256


    Rachel Steverson – Thank You so much for this it helped me out a lot! I wneatd to create this look but I was holding the iron clamp down so hard on my hair creating that kink look that was awful and I didn’t know I was doing it wrong. I didn’t it this way and my hair looks great! Oh and I would love eye makeup video 🙂
