I try to make April Fools Day fun! No pranks or mean things though, I use FOOD! Now, I didn’t not think the ideas up all by myself, there is a LOT of information out there, even on our beloved ALLRECIPES.. . Check out
this article. And a search for “april fools” will get you 46 recipes!
Last year I served dessert first! I made
meatloaf muffins topped with “frosting”! Okay, I cheated and just used instant mashed potatoes colored with gel food coloring but it worked really well!
On the side, we just had canned green beans. I wasn’t creative enough to disguise veggies, LOL!!
For dessert, we had
cheeseburgers & fries with a side of veggies!
I basically followed this
cheeseburger recipe, minus the coconut.
The “fries” were apples that I peeled and tossed with lemon juice and then cinamon/sugar mixture. The veggies were a candy that I cut into pieces.
I went all out last year and even made dirt cake, and jello in cups with a straw stuck in so it looks like koolaid. My kids LOVED having "dessert" first so of course we had to follow it with the "main course"!!
But now I'm stuck what to do this year. I wasn’t going to do anything because my DH & I were going to be out of town but now we’re not going! So give me your best ideas! Happy April Fools Day!
