Last year on April Fool’s Day, I made a really silly dinner for my kids, and they still talk about it. They thought it was pretty awesome when I said that we were going to eat dessert first!
For the healthy part, I made meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato frosting. We also had green beans and rolls.
For dessert, I served grilled cheese… which was just store bought lemon pound cake and lemon frosting. I served it on a frying pan to make it look more believable. I also made a raspberry glaze.
For drinks, I made koolaid, which was really jello. This one totally pulled their legs. They laughed so hard when they realized it was jello and couldn’t suck it up through their straws.
For a lunch snack that I sent with my daughter so school, I opened a bag of cheetos and replaced them with carrots and a little note. I resealed the bag with double sided tape. I saved the cheetos and gave them to her as an after school snack. She thought that was pretty tricky.
I love silly little holidays like this. What kind of things do you to trick your family members? I need more meal ideas for tomorrow 🙂
