Holiday Fun with Food #MealsTogether

Holidays are so much fun because you get together with family and friends to celebrate and create memories.  Even sharing a simple meal can turn into something special when surrounded by family.  We created a fun Christmas meal with Tyson nuggets that the kids and I will never forget.

We headed to Sam’s Club to pick up our nuggets.  [You can see more about my love for Sam's Club here, here and here.]  At this point I had grand plans to create a Christmas village entirely of chicken nuggets.  Little did I realize that was not going to be the case.

These two love going to Sam’s club as well mainly since they can ride next to each other in the cart.  [Side note - why don't more stores have double seated carts?  And Im not talking about the giant boat that is attached to the cart.]

I put some ketchup and ranch dressing in ziplock and gave each kid a muffin tin with some nuggets.  Genius right?  I didn’t even use pinterest for that one either.  [Yes I just tooted my own horn.]


The kids had a blast squeezing the ketchup and ranch dressing on the chicken nuggets!  They covered their chicken nuggets and began to eat them before I could referee.  I started to have a mini panic attack because the vision of a Christmas village was fading.

So instead of a perfect Christmas village we created a chicken nugget candy cane.  And its one of my favorite memories this year.
