I remember making these baskets as a kid,
and also making them for/with my own children.
We always used the pack of construction paper we
got for Christmas, but any easily folded
paper will do--even newspaper or magazine
pages would make a fun basket.
Use some of the nice paper from your
craftstash to make a special basket.

Hot Dog Spaghetti

Credit goes to FCE member Vicki who said this recipe is a kid favorite---reminds them of
 Spaghettios! (I have not tried it yet, but plan to soon.)

1 8oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 c. water
2 TBSP vinegar
1 envelope spaghetti sauce mix
1 TBSP sugar
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1 lb. hot dogs (any kind) cut in bite size pieces
Spaghetti (I plan to use the bite size cut up sketti pasta from Barilla)

In 2 quart casserole, combine the first ingredients.
Stir in hot dogs until coated.
Microwave or cook on stove, covered, until heated through (7-8 minutes).
Stir at least twice.
Cook spaghetti.
Serve hot dogs over the spaghetti, (I may just mix the sketti in with the sauce,
and try it in the casserole crock pot.)

(My dad came up with this recipe--a very quick and hearty meal
 when served with a fruit salad and rolls or crackers.
I may have shared this before, but it is worth repeating!)

1 Can Chicken Noodle Soup--any brand or flavor (some have
 veggies included, which would also be delicious.)
1 Can Chicken and Dumplings (Any brand.)
Add a can of water if  too thick.

Simmer together until well blended and heated through.

This serves 2-4, so add cans of soup and dumplins as needed
for larger amounts.
