Yes, we are a little bit early. But that’s because this is important and you need time to prepare. April Fools’ Day is coming up and with it, the hands-down ultimate chance of the year to score some “cool grown-up” points. Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, neighbor, whatever, with just a little preparation you can become a legend. All you need to do is go all-out on April Fools’ Day.
Here’s how. Plan an April Fools’ meal. Personally, the kids in our house will be chowing down on cheeseburgers and layer cake this year (shh!). The prank, of course, is that the cheeseburgers are actually nilla wafers with peppermint patties and the cake is really meatloaf slathered in mashed potatoes.
There are all sorts of recipes like this, starting at breakfast with a bowl of cereal that’s actually cauliflower soup and extending to Twinkie sushi. Yes, it is immature. And silly. And if you try it, we guarantee, you will be an April Fools’ Day hero.
