Hot Dogs, Cupcakes, and Ice Cream

Thanks Maya Made for the newspaper bunting idea!

Yep, total junk food pig out last night. No organic food, almost nothing vegetarian or homemade, and we had a great time. Beautiful fall day/night, campfire in the back yard, family, and a very animated three-year-old. Here is our mom-worked-alot-this-week-one-day-of-really-bad-food-isn't-going-to-kill-you-we-are-a-real-family menu:
  • Hot dogs
  • Macaroni Salad
  • Baked Beans (out of a can)
  • Vegetable tray with Ranch dressing (what else)
  • Chips
  • Deviled eggs (I did make these)
  • Grapes
  • Soda
  • S'mores
  • Cupcakes (LM and I made these, see below)
  • Homemade hand-cranked, ice cream (thanks mom!)
The cake mix for the cupcakes called for four ingredients--the mix, water, eggs, and oil. Just in case you are curious, the mix doesn't turn out so well if you forget the water. Oops. However, everything turns out just fine if you add the water after mixing, despite what the instructions say.
