Our family thrives on sunshine and silliness. We say and do silly schtuff as we make our way through life, learning through having fun and being together. And drinking Diet Coke, lots of Diet Coke.
This blog is just my way to document and share ideas that have worked for me. It's nothing fancy.
For a food experience to go along with our Valentine theme, instead of the obvious sugar-loaded path, I tried to blaze my own. As Pink's kindergarten teacher might say, we used the "cheater pants" method and bought a can of crescent roll dough. 3YO Purple and I carefully unrolled the dough onto a flat surface. We then used cookie cutters to create Valentine shapes, namely hearts.
We found that it worked best if Purple pressed the cookie cutter to cut the shape, and then I held the cutter in place while Purple pulled off the extra dough from outside the cutter. We even re-rolled and cut some of the dough, and then rolled other bits of the dough into balls.
I baked the hearts and other bits according to the instructions on the can, 12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
These were a fun addition to our pasta and marinara dinner. The re-rolled and dough ball bits tasted just as good as the pretty hearts.
