More summer fare

Too many posts on the brain today...

I've got a good trip down memory lane for this week's kid friendly recipe. They're called dreamboats, and I imagine they came about as the result of what you might call a "clean out your freezer" moment. I tried a search for them and did not find anything like what my mother made under that particular term. But if they are a tried and true recipe, I believe they'd have been a big hit in the 70s.

All you do is slice open a hotdog (not quite all the way), stuff it with hot mashed potatoes, and top with a slice of melted cheddar cheese. Mmmmmm! These are great for outdoor parties, and could go well along with some kind of water theme. Plus, they really hit the spot when you've worked up a good apetite romping in the grass.

I wish I had an image for you, but they do not last long around here! Enjoy!

We used to eat these for dinner. I thought we were the only ones! My mom would site a bunch of them in a pan with pork n beans on the bottom and heat it up.

Kiddie comfort food.

My mom made these too! Some times she'd put the potatoes in a pastry bag and pipe them out all fancy---almost made us forget how poor we were, LOL!
