I played a joke on you!

I wasn't planning anything funny for dinner tonight but I was on the phone with Kathy and she told me her plan and I actually had most the stuff to copy her so I did!

We had cupcakes (mini meatloaf frosted with mashed potatoes) with salad for dinner



and then mashed potatoes and gravy for dessert


They were more fooled by the cupcakes than the melty mashed potatoes but liked it all.



They even requested cupcake meatloaf again! I wonder what ElCid is going to think when he gets pink and green mashed potatoes in his lunch ...

I loved this dinner. It was so fun. Hopefully my kids will remember that I really can be a fun mommy when I push school aside. By the way, I loved the flowers on yours!

That is awesome!!!! The only thing I did was have forks with our oatmeal. My kids would be soooo jealous!

I'm glad you guys had kids first--I'm not nearly so creative, but I'm stealing your idea and putting it on my calendar!

Dan says "Sounds like something that sexy Sandra Lee would make. But she would have included a cocktail." She's on food network, so I think that's a good compliment. And she's done kiddie cocktails before, too.
