Family Game Night - We went fishing!

Last night was family game night. Well, for the boys anyway. I ended up tending to an unusually fussy baby who had gotten shots earlier that morning. But it was fun nonetheless. We were going with a fish theme so we played Go Fish (with Superhero Squad cards of course!) and Let's Go Fishin'.

Boys are still learning so cards get laid out on the floor
Jordan's so talented he can play with his feet:)
"I got a 5!"
Practice for their real fishing trips one day!

I wanted to make a theme appropriate dessert to go with it so I came up with my own recipe. I made some dough ( I used the Betty Crocker recipe for 1 pie crust) and cut out some fish shapes. I then sprinkled them with sugar and baked them at 425 degrees for about 7 minutes.

Once they came out I topped one side with cream cheese and the other with strawberry jam and then sandwiched them.

Finally I put them in the refrigerator to set. Let me give you some tips if you are considering making these: Spread your cream cheese and jam on the side of the pastry that was on the pan. It is smoother and spreads better. Also, I wouldn't sandwich them next time. They were messy and crumbly. I would just spread cream cheese on a single fish and then top it with the jam.

That was our family game night! I love that the boys are getting to an age where we can do fun things together. I can't wait until they are old enough to play Monopoly:)
