Last night I made a big announcement. I announced that we would be having Pace's Corn Dogs for supper tonight. I had a coupon for Pace's Corn Dogs for 50 cents each, and I could buy 10 at the price. The children were excited, as was myself and my sister. I don't know if I could really say my husband was excited, but he would eat them too.
Tonight on the way home from work, I pulled the coupon out of my purse, and told my husband which exit to get off on. We pulled in and I placed our order. I added a large French fries, just for good measure. We love French fries. We waited several minutes before it was our turn at the drive-thru window. This is a pretty popular restaurant in the area. It was finally our turn, we made payment and received the food. I held the food on my lap all the way home. The smell permeated car, I was excited to get home!
Upon walking through the door, I was greeted by my two youngest children. They remembered what I told them I was bringing for dinner. My youngest isn't a fan of the corn dog, per se. He loves the Hot Dog on a Stick... which means I eat the corn breading that is hiding the treasure for him. He also loves just the stick. This nifty dinner goes from something you eat, to something you can play with. He loves the stick!
My daughter ran outside and got her brother and soon we were all at the table, or at least close to the table. Our dining room table is a card table. It works for us. I passed out the French fries, because the children wanted their own. The mustard was on the table and we ate. My corn dog needs to have mustard on it. It is how I can always remember eating them. It is was a nice dinner, I didn't have to warm up the house, and everyone enjoyed it.
Sometimes as a mom, it is nice to have something simple, which isn't very expensive, and which everyone will enjoy.
