Keep your expectations low this week! Nothing here is very cute at all! But I guess that's a good lesson, because even though I wasn't impressed by anything I did, my child still ate lunch every day and life went on as usual! It's only food!
The best of the week. A Hello Kitty-shaped sandwich (cookie cutter from Party City) with mini chocolate chip eyes and a chocolate-covered sunflower seed for the nose. Tomatoes on picks, stacks of mini cucumbers, I was going for a bow theme with the raspberries in heart-shaped cups, and a mini box of raisins. This was packed in a metal pencil case I found in the back-to-school section at Target.
DD wanted to help with her lunch on this day, so she chose all the accessories. Leftover spaghetti and cucumbers in the main dish, blueberries on the side, a heart container with Parmesan cheese for sprinkling on the spaghetti, a box of raisins and a marshmallow on a ring pick.
This lunch was the surprise hit of the week. DD loved spreading the peanut butter on the apples! Celery, strawberry, raspberries, half a sandwich and a fruit chewy. I threw in a few elephant picks at the end, but otherwise this took zero extra time.
Not cute and ::gasp!:: the cheese ripped on Mickey's ear. But I'm posting this because it was a really fun little snack to bring on a playdate this week. A sandwich for each girl, berries and tomatoes to share, and it was packed tight enough that it looked exactly the same when we got there. This was also packed in another metal pencil case found in the back-to-school section at Target for maybe $3.
Anyone else have cute lunches to share?
