It's amazing the influence friends and movie suggestions can have on a family's eating preferences!
Little did I know that when my friend, Roseanne, lent my kids her kid's Sonic The Hedgehog, The Movie, (yes - I promise you'll get it back - one of these days!), their eating habits would be so immediately impacted. Eat chili? My kids? Don't even think about it. NEVER. They couldn't get past all that stuff being mixed together let alone attempting to put it to their lips! Then came 'Sonic the Hedgehog' and we've never looked back.
Chili dogs? How about two?! If you don't have time to make your own, here's a product you can quickly use which is free of milk,eggs and all nuts.
