Witty Wednesday- Tipster Style

I have recently gotten together with a great group of bloggers to bring you different tips, recipes and other little things that we can come up with daily. Summertime generally  slows down for everyone in the computer world because we are spending more time outside, kids are outta school, BBQ’s, etc., so this is our way of bringing something different and fun when things slow down.

Today’s topic is Witty Wednesday. Yes, I know I already have Witty Wednesday posts but we thought it would be fun to include other blogger’s ideas today. Here are a few fun facts you can share with your kids when they ask you these common questions.

Mmmmmmmm Chocolate Monday!

I have recently gotten together with a great group of bloggers to bring you different tips, recipes and other little things that we can come up with daily. Summertime generally  slows down for everyone in the computer world because we are spending more time outside, kids are outta school, BBQ’s, etc., so this is our way of bringing something different and fun when things slow down.

Our first topic is Mmmmmmmm Chocolate Monday!

Make choosing chores fun for the kids

Do your kids fight over who gets to have a certain chore? Would you like a fun way to mix it up? Do you want less arguing and a more concrete way of deciding?

Make this fun Chore Bag and your kids will be excited to start their chosen chores for the week.

Out of hamburger buns?

I desperately wanted cheeseburgers for dinner tonight but did not have a single hamburger bun in the house. I don’t like using bread because the ketchup seeps through. I did, however, have a TON of hot dog rolls. So, why not change the conventional way of thinking and instead of round cheeseburgers, make them long like hotdogs?

I prepared the burger just as usual and rolled them into hot dog shapes and slapped them on the grill. One thing to note is that you might want to put some aluminum foil on the grill because the shape of the burgers cause it to fall apart easier.

It also seemed that they kids ate more tonight. Usually they have 1/4 to 1/2 of the burger left but tonight, they all finished it off!

They requested these again so I think these cheese-bur-dogs (my husband’s clever name for it) were a hit.
