April Fool’s Day Recipes to Trick the Whole Family
I will admit that April Fool’s Day is not my favorite holiday. I’m pretty creative when it comes to arts and crafts, but a lot less creative when it comes to tricking people. And I’m a terrible liar so if the trick involves me having to say something, I’ll probably give it away with my bright read cheeks! That being said, when I was a teacher I used to pull a really great prank on my third graders when I would give them a “long term assignment” that was way way way too hard for them and then watch them all squirm in their seats while I described how they would need to write a five page paper etc… But, those days are passed, and thus far the most creative thing I’ve come up to tell my kids is that it’s snowing and they don’t have school. Which this year would totally not be funny…
So this led me to round up some funny ways you can use food to trick your family on April Fool’s Day, because hey, you have to eat, so you might as well have fun with it.
Meatloaf Cupcakes: Your kids will think you’ve lost your marbles when they sit down to a dinner of cupcakes! Right up until they realize it’s actually meatloaf with colored mashed potatoes for frosting.
Really Cold Cereal: This cereal’s tricky to “dig into” since it starts off with a bowl of frozen water.
“Egg” on Toast: Serve up something sweet for breakfast with an apricot and some yogurt spread over a piece of pound cake.
Pizza Cake: Dessert for dinner again? It’s really biscuit dough surround pizza sauce and sausage.
