Little Shmoo's Top Five Countdown #2

The second thing out of shmoo's mouth when I asked him what his favorite lunches were was "...and the Twinkie Dogs!" So here they are, Yves veggie dogs baked inside a cornbread batter and packed with ketchup, baked potato chips, peas & carrots (I cut the carrot with my nifty new curvy cutter!), and an orange.

I first made Twinkie Dogs on March 7th; follow the link to get the recipe and find out how it's done.

Verdict: These have been some empty-looking lunch boxes! I found a couple wayward peas and orange rinds left. 5 stars for Number 2.

See you Monday with Number One! I've been having so much fun reading everyone's guesses! I think you'll all be as surprised as I was...

what's the curvy cutter? I'm a kitchen gadget addict! I just got a spiroli (sp?) anyways, it's SUPER!
and my kids are already out of school, but have requested twinkie dogs for monday's lunch (they're coming to work with me---ack.)thanks for the SUPER blog!

OOO I can't wait! The suspense is killing me!

Since no one has guessed number 1 yet, I will guess that it is something so simple that everyone has overlooked it. Perhaps one of the faux meat and faux cheese combo sandwiches or the cat shaped pb&j.

I wanted to thank you for recommending World Vegetarian on your site. I also picked it up after seeing it here and I'm enjoying all the tasty bean recipes. My favorite so far was the Capriot Lima Bean Stew.

EatPeacePlease said...

Oh no, I hope #1 isn't Tuno!

My guess would be Wellingtons or maybe those Mini-Hand-Pies? Something extravagant, maybe?

Vicki said...

#1 is cannellini yam hummus, right?! think about it over the weekend, schmoo.

Ma May said...

Oh, I am torn! Can't wait to see # 1. Can't stand the thought of no more VLB!!!!

As as to what that # 1 might be....
Since it appears that no one has guessed it yet, I'll take a second try and guess it was the lunch Shmoo made himself. BUT, I also reserve the right to pole the audience, and call a friend :-)

Jane M said...

I'm betting #1 is the layered bean dip thingy. Yeah....Little shmoo has really good taste so far. He will probally surprise me though with his last pick. The suspense!!!!!!!

harlemgrrl said...

i'll guess that shmoo's #1 will be the cute and tasty tofu fish sticks with tater tots mainly because it's one of my faves

Ma May said...

OK, I'm making myself nuts here, but playing this guessing game is so fun! So now I'm guessing it's the hot dog macaroni in 1st place.

I can hear you all now, "Ma May, get a life!" :-)

Jessica said...

Your blog is the best! I just started reading it, and I'm so sad that it's almost summer vacay! But I look forward to trying out your recipes :)

TeaPriestess said...

Wow I really thought the soba noodles would be #1 or the twinkie dogs cuz that was just dead clever...hmmm...now I have to go back through the archives and try to guess...

marisa said...

I'm voting for the "asparagus and cream pie" just because of the name!

I'm going to miss you all! Have a fantastic summer.

Emily said...

This is too fun! I vote for the inari sushi lunch....that was one of my favs and he'd get to use chopsticks! =)

Kirsten said...

I love your blog.
I very rarely comment but I wanted to make a guess about #1. I'm going to guess that it was the dogs and macaroni.

I just don't know what I'll do this summer with out your awesome/appetizing lunches. Ugh!

vegprincess said...

Hey. . . I finally caved and created a profile. . . everything always looks so delicious! And I'm really looking forward to making vegan croissants!

This is off-topic, but. . . does anyone know what's going on with Kenny over at veganlunchcast?

amaupin0402 said...

yeah...i think its the tofu pillows with sushi rice. its my favorite too! i'll miss you over the summer!

Calla said...

maybe some kind of soup??

I can't beleive we have to wait until monday to find out!!

Heather H said...

I just had to let you know that I made the flautas for my family tonight. They were a HUGE success. My husband has been pleasantly suprised with all the dishes I make from your site. Thanks!

>>I can't believe we have to wait until monday to find out!!

Heh heh heh (wicked laughter)

This is fun!

Johanna3 said...

we are eating our nails here, we cant wait to see what will be number one !!

Andrea said...

My guesses now are fishsticks or injera.

Ma May said...

Hey Jennifer, what does Little Shmoo think of all the attention his favorite lunch is getting these days????

Erica said...

I'm guessing blintzes and babka, or mac & peas? Or something with veggie dogs.

Jennifershmoo said...

>>what does Little Shmoo think of all the attention his favorite lunch is getting these days????

Oh, he doesn't know anything about it! I almost never mention the blog to him -- he's too busy playing and being a boy. :-)

>>what's the curvy cutter?

Sorry, it's actually called a "krinkle" cutter. It looks something like this:

It makes cute crinkle cut carrots and zucchini.

mandcsmom said...

I have enjoyed checking your blog daily; I will so miss it this summer!

PS I was also wondering what was up with Kenny's blog?????

Shadowtracker said...

hmmmmm, I would expect one of the en croute meals as he seemed fond of food wrapped in a crust. But you said you were surprised, so I have to guess...The fondue lunch.

he has such sophisticated taste for one so young, I'm sure I'll be surprised by his number one choice.

hope you and yours have a nice summer and good luck working on your cookbook.

Shadowtracker said...

rats! how did I miss the fondue at #4!

I'm stumped. The spinach phyllo triangles maybe?

I say meatballs or empanada for numero uno.

I was so excited to find a twinkies pan set for less than $15 at an outlet store. Glad I waited. Twinkies dogs on my list to do. Thanks Jennifer.

cindylou said...

The Twinkie Dog is so cool. What an ingenious idea.

R2K said...

Wow I personally prefer number 3 to this one.. But it isnt about what I like!

A great kids meal I can imagine.

Elizabeth said...

My guess is the Mac 'n Peas, since you said he can eat bowls and bowls of it!

So over the summer, will you still show us what he eats for lunch? I'm using a lot of your suggestions to plan my own kids' meals, even though we aren't vegans. You serve so many fresh fruit and veggies that I would never think of!

Andrea said...

Just please don't let it be vegemite. Blech.

Una said...

I'm guessing #1 is going to be the injera and ethiopian stew.

raising_kahne said...

ooh..Im getting anxious! I loved these cute little twinkie dogs when you first did them! I really want to try it, but I dont have the pans! haha I have absolutely no idea what Shmoo's number one will be, but I bet we'll all love it!

threetoedsloth said...

I would've thought Twinkie dogs would have been number one! Maybe it WILL be the inerja...Ethiopian food is ridiculously good! Those peanut butter and jelly muffins from February looked wonderful too.

monica m. said...

Veggie ham & cheese croissants? Those looked pretty tasty!

Arline said...

. . . noon in California on Monday. Oh, the suspense.

And thank you Schmoo family for sharing so much of yourselves with us. Have a great summer!


It's summertime, summertime, sum-sum-summertime!

Andrea said...

I know - I can't wait to see either...I'm guessing it's something either really simple that most kids love (ie, PB&J) or something complex that would be the furthest thing you could think of...can't wait!!

Ma May said...

Urgh! 1:30 in california on monday, and still waiting. We all KNOW Jennifershmoo is having fun keeping us in suspense! :-)

Mistrmind said...

His favorite lunch is going to be Tuno.

Angel said...

Hi:

I love your blog. What an ingenious idea with the Vegan lunchbox.

One question...for the fondue recipe, obviously it's a vegan "cheese" fondue. Can I have the recipe?

Two question...I cannot link to the link that you posted for "Twinkie dogs"???

Thanks,

Amy

I saw the pan for these at www.gooseberrypatch.com if anyone is having trouble finding them. They call it the Cream Canoe Pan. You can see it here: http://www1.gooseberrypatch.com/gooseberry/products.nsf/v.weball/K204?editdocument&lid=is_K204&cartprocess=vimgics
