The first thing she wanted to make was this Avocado Frog Dip. It is a basic guacamole dip and my girls had lots of fun making it with me. It was quite easy. We took turns cutting and scooping out the avocado, mashing it and stirring in a few other ingredients. Then my girls wanted to get a pretty tray and arrange all the veggie dippers and make the face.
I thought it turned out great. My kids aren't huge fans of avocado, but they ate this with the veggie dippers because "It's good for me" and "I know it's healthy". They said it, not me! They actually both ended up liking it more than they originally thought they would and we had fun putting it together. We made the dip while the potatoes were baking in the microwave.

* We used plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream
To complete our meal, we made these Potato Mice. We baked them in the microwave, so that the prep time wouldn't be quite as long. Our potatoes were pretty small, so we didn't use as much butter or milk as the recipe called for. We just used a little bit of each, and mashed it together until the texture was perfect. These were tasty as well and the girls were very proud of the dinner they helped me make.

* We used mozzarella cheese to top our mice
* We baked our potatoes in the microwave (minus the oil brushed on the skins of course!)
