FUN Saturday dinner with your kids

blog has the greatest idea's for making meal times fun.
This quick and simple tutorial will be such a hit with your kids,
and it's an easy prep meal for you!

In keeping with our fun food theme we made these cute sloppy Joe cars. What do you think?
These were simple to make and will be a big hit with the kids.

You will need:
* Hamburger or ground turkey
* 1 can sloppy joe sauce
* hoaggy rolls (or you can use unsliced hot dog buns)
* zucchini or cucumber
* cherry tomatoes
* pretzel twists

We made sloppy joe filling. Super easy! I browned a pound of ground turkey (because I like to fool myself into thinking we're healthy around here) and then added a can of sloppy joe sauce. Easy peasy! But you can always make it from scratch. =o)

Then I hollowed out some of the roll. Super easy. I just cut out a rectangle and pulled out the bread.

Then fill 'er up with sloppy joe stuff.

Don't forget to add a steering wheel!

Then add on some wheels and headlights with toothpicks and you are set!

What a fun meal idea!Thank you to the amazing Erin for this creative tutorial~we believe you will never create too many great memories with your children, so start now with this excellent idea! We love it!
