getting ready for the big day......{April 1}

You know we love April Fool's day here at our house. Lots of fun cooking up treats that look like regular food. Here is a cute one from family fun- sweet sushi

Love these! Tricky taco shells (found on this would be perfect for Dave since he hates chunks of tomatoes- he would be happy to find out it was strawberries along with peaches, chocolate cake crumbles, candy lettuce, and a cookie taco.


Here are some treats that we made last year:

The shamburgers: made from nilla wafers and a peppermint patty

Dave getting a surprise when he bit into the "strawberry chocolate" pie to find that it was mashed potatoes and beef :)

Ideas from Family Fun.

And here is a Cute list of 15 jokes to play on April Fool's day.

What a crack up! I love April Fool's day. The best year was when I made "meatloaf and mashed potatoes" (my kids hate meatloaf) out of cocoa puff rice krispies in a loaf pan and vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce for the potatoes! I'll have to dig for the photos and post them. BTW, your thrift store finds are awesome. I love the clogs you found!
