I have enlisted big brother AKD's help in keeping Bubby occupied and out from underfoot, which has been a lifesaver, but MC requires more focused attention than I can give him while I am also cooking.
Plain and simple: I need more help.
Enter, my helpers, Bubby and Pal:
These little piggies may not be pretty--my helpers aren't too skillful--and they may not be the best nutritionally, but they are done: ready to go in the oven.
Now all I need to do is plan healthy suppers that can be prepared ahead of time and just popped in the oven during that busy hour of the day every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for the rest of the school year. And find the time to actually prepare them ahead of time...
Um...I think I'm gonna need a little more help...please!
Just in case there is anyone reading this who doesn't know how to make little piggies, you will need a package of cocktail wieners and 2 tubes of crescent roll dough.
Pop open the crescent roll dough and separate each tube into 8 triangles. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise (so now you have a total of 32 long skinny triangles).
Place a cocktail wiener on the wide end of each triangle, and roll up. Place on a baking pan and bake at 375*F for 13-17 minutes, or until golden brown.
