Weenie Men – A Fun Dinner for Kids

I’m not even sure I can type this post.  I’m laughing too hard.  ‘Cause seriously… this meal cracked me up.  But even more hysterical than these totally adorable weenie men (that I found over on Casa de Luna) is the conversation that I had with my son.  Are you ready for this???
My son: “Don’t forget today is Saturday so we get a fun dinner.”
Me: “You’re right.  What should we do tonight?  How about Weenie Men?”
My Son: “Oh yeah, or Super Weenie.”
Me: “Um, what?”
My Son: “You know, Super Weenie.”
Me: “What’s a Super Weenie?”
My Son:  “Mom!  It’s a crime fighting hot dog.  Duh.”
Me:  “Of course.  Could you show me how to do that?”
Are you ready for this…..
I’d like to introduce you to Super Weenie – Crime Fighting Hot Dog!
Is that hysterical or what?!?!  I laughed so hard I cried.  He was so proud of his weenie creation.
Way better than my weenie men.
They were easy to make and my kids loved them.  Just cut a hot dog and then place in a pan with water in it.  Cook like you would a regular hot dog and voila!  Weenie men!

To make the hair on Super Weenie, my son added some uncooked spaghetti noodles.  Then we put them in a pan of boiling water and cooked these crime fighting bad boys until the pasta was cooked.

I love being a Mom always.  But there are days that make my heart burst and I thank the heavens that I was blessed with such amazing kids.  This was one of those days!
