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.
It took me a second to realize to look around and see that the kids were having so much fun and not because everything was perfect but because we were together having a good time.
So instead of a perfect Christmas village we created a chicken nugget candy cane. And its one of my favorite memories this year.
