Gross Chef Lane

This is probably the most disgusting thing I’ve ever made on purpose, but Thor had asked for and been promised pizza, and I realized I didn’t have one in the freezer. So…

I used the mouth of a glass to cut rounds out of the center of 3 pieces of whole wheat bread. I don’t have a toaster right now, so I broiled them until the top side was just toasted. I only toasted one side.

While my bread was broiling, I took half a Hebrew National, kosher, all beef wiener and sliced it very, very thin, like pepperoni. I nuked those cuts in the microwave for 15 seconds.

Once my bread was out of the oven, I flipped it over to the untoasted side and put about half a tablespoon of spaghetti sauce on each piece, then layered the hotdog slices around, and covered that with cheese. I put it back into the oven to broil for about 2 minutes, letting the cheese get nice and bubbly.

Totally gross, right? But my child liked it.

Earlier, he also enjoyed our homemade popsicles. For these, you will need an ice tray, juice and water, saran wrap, and something to use for handles. Kind of crazily, considering how sharp they are, I chose corn holders. I know. I wasn’t thinking.

I poured half water and half grape juice into my ice tray because I never give Thor whole juice–I always cut it with at least half water. Once the liquid is in, you cover the ice tray tightly with saran wrap, then poke holes through the saran wrap with toothpicks, or sticks, or…corn holders. Stick all that in the freezer until frozen, then, voila! Popsicles.
