Dinosaur Themed Dinner

Mural Meal: Prehistoric Dino Dinner


The only food I sometimes have trouble getting my daughter to eat is meat. But, she'll always go for chicken nuggets. Barring fast food from her diet, I discovered a seemingly good option in the frozen section aisle of my grocery store. The Yummy Dino Buddies are all white meat nuggets with Omega 3 value. Better yet, I knew I could create another masterpiece with the prehistoric figures.

Ingredients:

  • Four dinosaur nuggets
  • Black beans
  • Zucchini
  • Honey
  • Marshmallows
  • Optional: Whoppers and ketchup

Cooking the food:

  • Drain the can of black beans and rinse.
  • Slice zucchinis in long strips and cut in half. Saute with a pat of butter and garlic salt.
  • Bake dinosaur nuggets for 12 minutes at 425.

Placing the goodies on the plate:

  • First lay out the beans on the plate.
  • Next, create some sort of vegetation with the zucchini; a tree, bushes or what have you.
  • Place the dinosaurs a top the beans.
  • Use the honey to make a sun in the corner. Kids love dipping nuggets in honey. If you prefer, substitute ketchup.
  • For the treat, use marshmallows to make clouds in the sky.

I have a few candied eggs left over from Easter so I placed on the plate as an added bonus. It gave me the opportunity to teach her a lesson about dinosaur eggs over dinner.
