We enjoyed some holiday parties this weekend, complete with entire meals made up of cookies and marshmallow kabobs. After a gathering last night, we attempted to end on a semi-healthy note by taking the kids to IKEA for "real" dinner and letting them pick a gift for their siblings while we were there (they had been asking each other for things like electric trains and helicopters with real working winches).
Unfortunately we learned they were closing 20 min after we arrived and the restaurant was already closed. Hark. At 7PM The IKEA angels announced buy-one-get-one hot dogs. 50 cents for 2 hot dogs. Desperate for dinner and to not cook, we went for it.
So if you're on a budget and can get yourself to IKEA, you could get a whole lotta hot dog at closing time each day. If you get in line quickly enough, there's pizza as well.
Of course, there are always plates of Christmas cookies...
