Oblivious, Ecstatic, Skeptical

That's how my kids reacted last night when I told them we were having Cupcakes and Ice Cream for supper!!! 
Gwyneth was like, "hmm, whatever!"

and dug in

Hutch thought it was the BEST THING EVER!!!!

And Haydn, well, he's a little more seasoned, so he said that they really looked like cupcakes.  But he knew I had something up my sleeve.  He knows if something seems too good to be true, it probably is!!  He was smelling them, because I told them they couldn't touch them yet!!

We had GRILLED CHEESE for dessert!  Yummy!!

Don't worry!  I wouldn't really feed my kids cupcakes for supper!  Did you think I would?
(well, even if I did some night, I probably wouldn't tell you in my blog!)
It was my version of an April Fool's Joke. 
The "cupcakes" were meatloaf "cupcakes" with blue-tinted mashed potato "frosting"
The "ice cream" was blended cooked cauliflower ( I put it in an old cool whip container for added authenticity!)
The "grilled cheese" were toasted pound cake with yellow frosting!
What fun pranks did you pull yesterday?  (or get pulled on you)
