Big party, shared between birthday children. Hot dogs are a big hit with kids of that age BUT: i) at home, I only ever use good quality sausages from the butchers ii) the other Mums involved in the party are keen to just have el crappo hot dog sausages. iii) even if I get my way, no guarantee the cooker will work to allow me to cook the "decent" sausages.
So (ignore if vegetarian, there will be an alternative) would you be happy for your DCs to eat "crap hot dogs" as a one off? If not, how to I insure against the cooker not working when we get there???
Herta are probably the best of a bad lot. I don't mind as a one off, just realised my OP didn't really spell that out. My DCs eat well and lots of good stuff so happy for them to overdose on crap and sugar at parties. But know that lots of other parents don;t agree so am panicking a bit that some kids won't eat the el crappo hot dogs and therefore eat nothing.
oh no, i would never serve crappy hotdogs. You can buy the mini ones from the cooked meat bit in tesco and asda, they are not the wrinkly ones, they are more like hotdogs and they have a decent meat content
It's not that some parents will disapprove, therefore some kids won't eat them though, it's more likely:
- some parents will disapprove, and might look down on you (so what?) - some kids won't like them, therefore won't eat them (they can join the likes of nooonit's DD, and mine for that matter, eating a plain bun)
I'd be inclined to go with the flow if I were you, especially given the unreliable cooker factor. I'd be disappointed for myself though, I like to snaffle cooked proper cooked sausages at kids' parties, but can't stand hotdog sausages!
