Sloppy Joe Bun Buggy
So in my attempt to keep my kids minds off daddy being gone, I have tried to make them fun meals, something that will bring a smile to their faces.
Tonight's dinner definitely did that.
Back when Jasmine was in kindergarten, the school had a book fair and one of the books I picked up was this really cute little book of Kid's Snacks. It's filled with really cute ideas.
I wish you all could have seen their faces when they came to the dinner table, they were so shocked and excited. The next few minutes were spent comparing buggies, telling each other stories about where they were driving, and even crashing one of the buggies and then putting it back together again LOL
I think mission accomplished and score another for mommy.
Homemade Sloppy Joe Mix (or your favorite sloppy joe recipe)
Don't slice the hotdog buns. Using a knife cut a hole on the top of the bun and scoop out the inside.
Take a pretzel stick and gently stick it through the bun in the back, from one side to the other, then pop on a cucumber slice on each side for the back wheels. Do the same with the front.
For the lights, cut a black olive in half, then break a pretzel stick in half, gently push it through the front of the bun where you want the light located, stick half of an olive on there.
Fill the inside of the bun with sloppy joe meat mixture.
That's it. Easy Peasy but they look really cute :)
And according to Nicholas, this poor buggy crashed LOL
