Sweet and Sour Dinosaurs

Ok, so your laughing.

Ok, ok, so I was stretching for something to do with these dinosaurs. At Christmas time, while shopping at Sam’s club, I was trying to buy some of my grandsons’ favorites. I knew they both ate chicken nuggets and I thought how cute these little dinos would be.

I don’t intend to give you that recipe and call it an original GRAN recipe; you can figure that one out.

You’ve heard the saying if given a lemon, make lemonade. Well, when you have a whole box of dinosaurs — make Sweet and Sour Dinos.

This recipe is really all about the sweet and sour sauce recipe and you can use it with chicken, pork or shrimp. I hope you like this recipe; I thought it was a cute idea and believe me I thought of those little boys while eating the different shaped dines. Now what am I going to do with all those Goldfish and juice boxes I bought?
