Roasted Hot Dogs
I was so glad we were able to have this party for him.
Being the only boy among three sisters, it's good for him to have "boy time" every once in a while. Also, it seems like the last few years we've had to put off having one for him due to a death in the family, being difficult due to the time of the year with Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner... etc. It's always been something.
I was determined to have something for him this year, and I think it turned out very well. I heard one little one say "This is the best day of my life!" LOL... I doubt it was that fun, but it at least made me feel like the party was a hit.
Thank you all for stopping in and reading my ramble for the day : )

- one part salt
- one part water
- two parts flour
- Blend together until a sticky dough forms
- Kneed together for 7 - 10 minutes on a well floured surface
- Once it feels smooth and elastic, you are ready to start making the ornaments.
- Keep any dough you are not using at the moment wrapped in plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out before you get to it.
- You can roll out the dough and use cookie cutters to design ornament shapes, or you can give the kids each a handfull of dough to make their own designs. REMEMBER to place a little hole with a toothpick so they can be hung after they have hardened.
- To rid them of any moisture, bake them in an oven at 200 degrees for 4-6 hours.
- Once they are hardened, you can decorate them with glitter, markers, paint, etc.
