April fools fooled my kids!


April Fools dinner was a hit!

We had Fish Sticks (wafer crackers, peanut butter, and cornflake crumbs)
Mashed Potatoes and gravy (vanilla ice cream, and caramel)
Edamame (sweet tarts jelly beans)



The air heads ended up being a weird color, so my friends used the colorful totsie rolls for peas. I just , bought a few bags of sweet tarts jelly beans, and fished out the green ones, because I thought it looked so much like edamame.

I made real dinner as well, with the same menu, so the house smelled like everything on their plate (and so my husband and I had something to eat). The kids loved it, and kept telling me it was the best dinner ever! My son asked over and over when we are going to have this dinner again, and if we can have it tomorrow night.

I wanted to give a shout-out to my girls who made this with me:

Christine, Candy, Brittney, and Haley... Thanks for making life fun! I love you all!!!

I would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment!

Your fish sticks look better than mine did and I love the jelly bean edemame. I thought that is what they really were! GREAT!

You are such a fun/good mom! I better not let my kids see all the stuff you do, they'd feel ripped off! Glad you had a fun dinner.
