What's for dinner?

Once again, I decided to duplicate my recipe blog's last posting so I could share last night's dinner with everyone. I actually fooled my youngest daughter with the spaghetti. In the end, it was pretty fun!

I used the meatloaf recipe from Feet of Meat for our 'cupcakes' and cooked it in muffin tins. We then frosted our cupcakes with mashed potatoes. We had our cupcakes as our dinner entree.

 


We had spaghetti and meatballs for dessert

 


Our spaghetti was composed of a slice of angel food cake centered on a plate, then covered with small strands of buttercream frosting. The entire concoction was then covered with a sauce made of blended fresh strawberries and a touch of sugar.

Our meatballs were actually 'chocolate no bake cookies' that were rolled into balls before the completely cooled.

Note - I don't recommend the butter cream frosting noodles with angel food cake - I'd try another type of cake next time. Next year I will experiment with whipping cream for the frosting. It will have to be light, yet stiff enough to come out as strands and hold it's shape. Luckily, I have a whole year to work on that!

What a strange coincidence. This morning I saw on one of the blogs that I read regularly from France there were little coconut, oatmeal, cocoa nests made by the mom to hold candy eggs. That recipe is just like one my Grandma used to make and here it is on your blog, too! They were one of my favorites.
Your crazy dinner was very cute!
