Everyday Mom's Meals: First Day Supper

First Day Supper

Every year when Monkey heads back to school I try to find something extra special for that evening's supper made with just him in mind. That can be a one of his all time favorites or something new I know he will love. This year, after his first day of 2nd grade, the latter was what I chose because I had been saving a recipe to try since my blogger friend Melissa, from Served Up With Love, had shared them at my Church Supper a few weeks back.

Monkey loves Corn Dogs, but I'm not going to lie to you, they intimidate me! It's not that I don't think I could make them correctly, it is because most of the ones Monkey has eaten in his lifetime have come from fairs; and let's be honest, there is no better corn dog on earth than one at a county fair or street festival.So I just don't think any I make at home will live up to his standards!

Exhibit A. Enjoying a fresh corn dog at Berne Swiss Days in July
However, when I saw these I knew they would be a great substitution and way to enjoy the same flavors in a different form. This way he couldn't compare because these are muffins! Not to mention I knew he would be excited to have something so fun for supper after a tiring first day of school. After all, we can all relate how hard that first day back after a vacation is! If you have corn dog lovers in your house, or are planning a kiddie party soon, be sure to remember these! The only thing better than eating something from a stick is eating something made with love from Mommy!
