{carrot} Hot Dogs





There are SO many adorable

holiday food ideas

floating about the interweb.


Trouble is, when I see one, I should write down where I saw it,

so that I can go back to find it when I need it.


This is one of those ideas.

Hot dogs

wrapped in crescent rolls

made to look like carrots

especially for Stella,

who doesn’t like hot dogs,

but is obsessed with all things bunny related lately.


I couldn’t wait to make them,

but then of course I could not find the place I first saw them,

so I had to wing it.


They may all be different sizes 🙂

but I think they’re adorable,

and the  kids agreed!

{pretty tasty too}


and I’ve said it MANY times before…

festive food just is more fun to eat.
