Go on, eat like a kid again with Turkey Dinosaurs

When we were doing our online shop with Ocado last week we stumbled across these Dinosaur cutters and Josh just couldn’t resist buying them. So with that, Turkey Dinosaurs were on the menu for a weeknight dinner. If you fancy reliving your youth, carry on reading to find out how to make them yourselves with a side of chips and honey mustard mayo salad.
