Since Tristan loves dinosaurs so much, I decided we should make some dinosaur food!
2 cups crushed bones (sugar)
1/2 cup dirt (cocoa)
4 tablespoons of brontosaurus blubber (butter)
1/2 cup swamp water (milk)
1/2 cup squashed bugs (peanut butter)
1 teaspoon oil (vanilla)
3 cups of dried dinosaur grass (oatmeal)
Place the crushed bones, dirt, blubber, and swamp water in a saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring mixture continuously. Add rest of ingredients. Stir well and remove from heat. Drop by teaspoonful onto wax paper. Let cool and harden.
Tristan and Colter had a ball making the food, but my picky nephew (who asked me to leave the room while I was eating a salad because he could smell the tomatoes) turned up his nose when it came time to eat them. Apparently, he doesn't like dried grass with his squashed bugs. The rest of us enjoyed them though!
