Puppy Love

I think I should just rename my blog “All the ideas I steal from Family Fun”. Seriously. Because whenever we get the magazine we all look through it and say “Oh, we have to make that!” about a million times. This was no exception. We had to make this, of course. I mean really… hot dogs and Valentine’s? What’s not to love, right? =o)

My kids loved it. Not that the hot dogs were anything special. But the presentation was what got them. They sat down at the dinner table and both smiled so big. And then came the “ah, Mom. This is so cool. You did this because you love us so much, right?” Dang. They know me so well!

You will need:
* hot dogs (duh)

* uncooked spaghetti noodles
* cheese

That’s it! Heart away! And don’t you just love the name? I stole that too =o)

I link to the linky parties on my sidebar.

  2. LOL! We just made the heart tortilla cookies from Family Fun this week. Thank goodness for that magazine!
