Making Baby Hot Dogs

It's lunchtime and we're hungry. I thought hot dogs sounded good and was getting ready to make them.

Now Alexa is running in our kitchen and suggested making Baby Hot Dogs. Our little reader Ian saw the screen and got excited.
Ian - Can we make baby hot dogs?!?

Saturday Morning Cereals - Cinnamon Vanilla Lucky Charms

Happy Saturday! Time for another Saturday morning cereal. This time we're trying the Limited Edition Cinnamon Vanilla Lucky Charms. With a box that has snow and snowmen on it, the kids tossed on their warm winter coats and scarfs, despite being in sunny So Cal.

Hooray for something to fix the worst part of Lucky Charms, the oat cereal!

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day - April 2nd

It's been a while since we've celebrated any national days. Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! Sounds like a good one to celebrate!

Fruit Punch Peeps

We're just about halfway through all these Peeps flavors. Tonight we're going to try Fruit Punch Peeps.

Now I don't know what comes to your mind when you hear fruit punch, but for me I immediately think Kool-Aid. And while you can make it from a packet, the coolest way to drink it was out of these plastic squeeze bottles.
Now my mind went to Kool-Aid but upon further inspect, they don't actually call it fruit punch flavored. Instead it's Tropical Punch. But let's compare the fruits on both packages. Limes, oranges, grapes, and cherries - check. Hmm, there's pineapple on the Peeps package but not on the Kool-Aid package. I'm still going to allow it.

Sour Watermelon Peeps

It's time to try the next Peeps on our list. Today we're tasting Sour Watermelon Peeps. Once the flavor was decided, Ian ran to his room to change into a more appropriately colored outfit. Long-sleeved red undershirt, with a green t-shirt on top. Looks great Ian!

So what kind of thing goes with Sour Watermelon? When I'm thinking Sour Watermelon, I usually think about the Sour Patch Kids Watermelon candies. They start Sour then turn Sweet.

Chalk Your Walk #chalkyourwalk 2020-03-29

We're "Safer At Home" here in Los Angeles, but that doesn't mean we can't still find fun things to do. There's lots of things people around the neighborhood are doing to stay in good spirits. Bears in the windows for people on a "Bear Hunt", leaving extra fruit out from a tree in the backyard for anyone to take, and smiling and waving as people pass by on their inevitable walks.

I heard about the #chalkyourwalk where people were writing encouraging messages for people to enjoy on their walks as well. At about this time, Ruston and I would usually be thinking out our Pasadena Chalk Festival entry and maybe even have a practice session. I think we can make something pretty cool. The kids have always wanted to help on a mural and they were excited that they'd get to help out today.
