These "cupcakes" were super easy to make. But first let’s give credit, where credit is due. Go visit my friend Chelse for better pictures and the entire recipe. It’s worth it. I promise. Despite the meatloaf cupcakes looking really gross, they were actually really good.
(Just picture the mashed potatoes on the side instead of on the top.)
(And instead of green mashed potatoes, think creamy white.)
I actually felt sorta awful for pulling the cupcake/meatloaf trick. Especially because Bennett was all, "CAKE? I eat CAKE supper, Mama?" He then took approximately ONE BITE before he was done. I’m all, "APRIL FOOL’S!" And he says, "Cake, Mama?" Then I said, "Yes, baby. It’s a meatloaf cupcake." And he’s all, "I not like it, Mama. I not like cake."
(INSERT SUPER SAD FACE.)
I broke out the spoons and at that moment, I (KID YOU NOT) could have hung the moon. Bennett’s all, "I like it, Mama. I like dink." And then I said, "I know, silly, but it’s not a drink. It’s Jello! Do you like blue Jello?"
And then I’m all, "I know, baby. I know. Your Mama is funny. Just wait till I tell the Internet."
