"Weiner Wraps"

Back in April I attempted some weiner wraps and they could have chipped a tooth they were so hard. So I was happy to see a weiner wrap recipe in The Vegan Family Cookbook. The dough is really easy to make, and is actually a "drop biscuit" recipe. I wonder if the book has a typo, because it calls for 3/5 C. Olive Oil ~ none of my measuring cups work with fifths, so I did slightly less than 3/4 and it all worked out fine. Is the 3/5 odd to you? Anyhow, I rolled out the dough, gave some to Liv to roll out too, cut the dough to size, covered the Tofu Pups up, and put them in the oven. Easy.

The dough was light and fluffy, and really perfect! I served the weiner wraps with naturally sweetened applesauce (no high fructose corn syrup), 2 grape eyes, and a celery stick smile ~ and you can see the other smile this meal produced! I really like this new cookbook!

Presentation is what it's all about. Make healthy food fun and kids will eat it. I bet she cleaned her plate. I would too!

And I also think 3/5 is a typo. Never saw that one before. I would imagine they meant 3/4.

That's a creative little meal there for the little one. Cute idea!

As for the 3/5... weird. I've never heard of that and I probably would have done the same thing you did. Either a typo or did you notice weird measurements on other recipes in the book?

What a face on your sweetie! Great look to the camera. I love the smiley face on the fruit as well. Great bowls there. So vibrant.

I would say 3/5 is a strange amount to see and wonder as Leslie did if there are other recipes in that book that use fifths...

Fifth of vodka, Fifth of Beethoven maybe.

I keep singing in my head the Oscar Mayer Wiener song. Ugh, I am so glad I don't eat "real" hot dogs... YIKES!!!

Fifth of Beethoven, I like that!

Speaking of the Oscar Mayer song, I just saw a commercial for it the other day (same song, ya know) and I can't get over how they chime in with the mom saying "no additives" all natural and makes kids happy. ALl natural what? That commercial is a big load of #%$^ and it's all colorful and the kids are happy and eating I don't even know what bologna is even made from...

I'm so glad all of us (here) don't eat "real" ones either.

What a happy plate! I'd like to make some of these for myself. :) I have a package of smart dogs in the freezer.

Do you like the tofu pups better than smary dogs?

hi dori! Olivia will ONLY eat tofu pups & can't be fooled (we don't try anymore), and Abi prefers those too, but will eat others. Art & I like Yves best, but aren't as particular as Liv.
