Simple Kids Dinner by Curb Alert

Please tell me that I am not the only mom on the planet that many times has no clue what she is cooking for tonight’s meal?   I cringe when my kiddos ask me the dreaded words, “What’s for Dinner”?  There are some weeks that I am good about our meal planning, other weeks not so much.

This has been one of those weeks!   I wish I could just snap my fingers and magically appear a MickeyD’s Happy Meal! It was then I decided to whip up this: Our Very Own “Happy Meal” 

Haha…I am laughing while uploading these pics because I saved them as “OctoMeal.”

I have admitted many times that I am not the best chef ever but I AM crafty and will do what it takes to disguise a plain boring dinner.  

The Only Ingredients You Need:

  • Sausage
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Any other veggie you’d like on the side

…. and on any ordinary night the kids think… Blah Blah Blah!

How did I make the Octopus, you ask?  I knew you were dying to find out my secret!  Well first cut it in half longways and then quarter it. 

The kids were totally laughing at me at this point because I was playing with my food but guess what!  They wanted to JOIN IN and HELP!

After we cut up all of the sausages, carrots and spinach leaves they totally ATE it!  ALL of IT.  

My 13 year old even begged me to cut up two more Octo-Sausages for her. Score 1 for mom this evening and trust me, I needed it! So there you have it!
