I thought I could be pretty clever today, and turn left over Christmas sugar cookies from the freezer, into a "spaghetti and meatball" treat for the kids to enjoy after watching "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs". You can click here, to see the basic idea, in cupcake form, that I was going for.
Unfortunately, I started the cookies too late in the evening, so I was in a hurry to get them done before the children's bedtime, which meant I didn't give them time to cool before adding the frosting noodles.
You can kind of see on the first cookie we made, the look I wanted. But the warm cookies quickly melted the frosting into a formless blob, and we didn't quite end up covering all the Christmas sprinkles, and I didn't pay enough attention to the cupcake instructions - you're supposed to dip the candy "meatballs" in strawberry jam, not pour strawberry jam over the entire thing.
Not exactly spaghetti and meatballs, but at least they were tasty - and hey, the movie was good.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
