April Fool's Day- Dinner

There's nothing like a yummy "Chocolate Raspberry Pie" for dinner.

My girls were so excited that we were having pie for dinner after we had a lunch full of sweet things. I think they thought I'd gone insane. The Meatloaf and Potatoes were great! This was another great idea from Family Fun- again I made changes to it.
Go here for my recipe.
By the way, the girls were not as thrilled to have real food disguised as sweets. It's much more fun to expect something normal and get sweets than the other way around.

There's a real lesson to be learned here about "expectations" vs. "reality". Nevertheless-- the meatloaf pie with potato "frosting" was delicious.
