Cupcake Bombs For Family Night!! #FoodieFriday

Yes, you read the title correctly-it does say cupcake bombs! You see, M recently came up with the idea of doing themed family nights every couple of weeks. Friday is usually our family night and consists of food, games, maybe a movie, maybe some challenges on Wii Sport...anything we can come up with. After their success with themed birthday parties last year, M and M decided that themed family nights would be a good idea. They have a whole list of possibilities, and are having a lot of fun with it. Tonight is our first one, and it's sort of an adventure, mystery-solving theme. Most people have heard of Nancy Drew I'm sure, which is the girls portion of the night. The guys weren't thrilled about attending a Nancy Drew family night though, so we added on a manly aspect-the Hardy Boys!

Of course with this theme, we have new names for the meal and beverages (such as Rush of Adrenaline for Capri Sun, and Truth Serum for the water). Games include a taste test, scent identification balloons, and a Bible mystery game. Oh, and I have to share this one-dynamite sticks! Don't worry, they're just Slim Jims wrapped in construction paper, and thread used for the fuse. I love these!

Along with the rest of the fun described above, we had to have a desert. M mentioned doing Cupcake Bombs (don't ask me where she comes up with all these great ideas!), so of course I was installed as the Cupcake Bomb maker. 

It's actually very simple-you can use a box cake mix, or your favorite recipe-and would be great for any boy's birthday party. Or of course, have your own themed family night! Here's how to make these little bombs:

24 Cupcakes (As I said, use your favorite recipe, or a box mix. Any flavor.)
Frosting (Again, make your own, or use a store-bought can.)
1 or 2 Twizzlers

Bake your cupcakes according to directions, cool, and frost. Cut Twizzlers in half lengthwise, then cut into desired lengths. Insert a piece of Twizzler in the center of each frosted cupcake, and BOOM! You have a bomb the entire family will love!

Even though my children are older I think they'd still get a kick out of doing this!

I love this idea, it's really simple and they are just as cute as they can be.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
