Blood and Bones (Cheesy Bread and Marinara Sauce)

A healthy Halloween snack: Cheesy Bread Bones dipped in Marinara Blood! Simple, spooky, and delicious!

Blood and Bones (Cheesy Bread and Marinara)

I didn’t have a great Friday. Blog was down. Saturday? It was so-so. Blog was still down most of the day and I decided it was a great time to do the grocery. We bought some halloween candies for Twinkle’s 4th month celebration which has a Halloween theme, of course! (what else?)

Typhoon Lando came and the instant the temperature dropped and the mood became gloomy, I felt lazy and all I wanted to do was sleep all day.

Whew! It felt like I slept all my Sunday and half my monday.

The coffee’s not helping too. I wonder why? I’m beginning to think even my coffee needed coffee this  weekend.

Blood and Bones (Cheesy Bread and Marinara)

So today, despite the fact that I don’t want to move, I pushed myself to make us a little something for merienda. I figured I needed an inspiration to jumpstart my brain so I can go back to work mode.

It’s a monday.. also a perfect time to get us into a Halloween-y mood. And so merienda was a bit creepy: Blood and Bones.

Don’t worry, this is not real blood and bones but uber Cheesy Bread with a Marinara Dipping Sauce … one of our comfort food!

Blood and Bones (Cheesy Bread and Marinara)

Gone in 30 minutes! Ykaie piled it in a plate and then sprinkled extra extra mozzarella. Off it went in the microwave for a good 45 seconds. Cheese melted and it became extra gooey.. so so gooood with the chunky marinara!

Oh, we are definitely having a great start of the week! I’m loving THIS Monday.
