So every April Fool's Day, I try to pull one over on JP. It usually involves food, and I usually trick him. hee hee hee
This year, I had two tricks to play on him. The first was in the morning. The night before, I mixed up some Knox gelatin with juice and stuck it in the fridge. April Fool's morning, JP went to take a sip of juice. And guess what?? It was stuck in the bottom of his glass! Bahhhahhhahhh. This was a trick in itself. The juice in the bottom of the glass was done so that he would think he was safe for the rest of the day. Oh nooooo. I had more trickery up my sleeve!
All week long, I told JP we were having chicken pot pie for supper on Friday night. He loves chicken pot pie, so he was excited because I never buy or make it. However, it wasn't really chicken pot pie! Instead, I make peas, carrots and corn out of Starburst candies and mixed it with vanilla pudding. I mixed in some chopped dried apples for the chicken stuck it in an individual pie plate and popped a precooked crust on the top! It looked like chicken pot pie and I totally tricked JP!
Other years, I've made "Strawberry Pie" (meatloaf and pink mashed potatoes in a pie plate,) "Grilled Cheese" (toasted pound cake with cheese colored frosting,) and "Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes & Gravy" (chocolate rice krispie treats in a loaf pan and cool whip "potatoes" with butterscotch sauce as the gravy!)

Where do I get my ideas?? Family Fun.
