An April Fools tradition, near and dear to my heart, but one I finally gave up (boo!!) when my kids quit humoring me on this, and got too busy to play moms games, I had to resort to normal April Fools pranks…..but since they were very little, we ALWAYS had a mixed up meal on April Fools. Oh how I remember their little faces, in shock that it was never what it seemed!!! dessert looked like supper, and supper looked like dessert!!!
I will let you in on my “secret” haha.
What looked like breakfast was really dessert. (hashbrowns) Pound cake cut into chunks and drizzled with strawberry sauce. (eggs) whipped topping and a peach half sprinkled with poppy seeds. (sausage pattie) brownies cut with a circle cookie cutter.
What looked like dessert, was really supper!! Meatloaf baked into a pie pan, topped with tinted mashed potatoes !!!! Yeah, looked just like strawberry pie, …yes???
And of course, Kool-Aid for a drink, which was really cherry jello, with a straw “set” into it.
Yes, memories past. I did MANY MANY different combinations from meatloaf cupcakes, to spaghetti and meatballs, to minced chicken doughnuts!!!! Yummy!!!!
All for the sake of April Fools!!!! (since all of this was pre-digital camera days, I had to photograph the scrapbook page I made of this years meal. I really do not own a checkerboard table cloth!!!) it is paper. 🙂
