April Fools 2011 Edition

April Fools 2010 was a HIT! The kids were so surprised, and I am thinking I want to do something fun again for dinner for the 2011 edition. Here is what I am looking at...

Grilled Cheese from Family Fun (pound cake and frosting)

Lasagna from Food Network (pound cake jam, pudding, cream)

With Beans from Family Fun (chewy jolly ranchers)

Pizza from Newsodrome (cake, coconut, jam, and fruit roll ups)

Chicken Pot Pie from Family Fun (pudding candy, and pie crust)

Last year, we had fish sticks (wafers, peanut butter and crushed corn flakes), potatoes and gravy (ice cream and caramel), and edamame (green runts). The kids were SO SHOCKED! You should have seen the looks on their faces! I had the real thing in the oven, so the smell was authentic (and so my husband and I had something to eat). Here is the photo:

I haven't decided for sure, but I am thinking I am leaning towards the Lasagna and beans this year. What do you think?

Have a Happy & Creative Day!
