I made "granola bites" this weekend using this recipe. Delicious, pretty healthy and it makes a ton! They're perfect for bento (or regular!) lunches. I bought a few packages of mini silicone cups at World Market and they're perfect for this recipe: http://www.anotherlunch.com/2010/05/recipe-chocolate-chip-granola-bites.html
Easy at-home lunch. I hadn't even planned on making this at all cute, but how can you not put circle sandwiches for the eyes, grapes on picks for the feathers ... it was all downhill from there! PBJ with mint eyes, homemade granola bite, carrots & dip.
Hello Chilly Kitty! It was cold here this week, so DD got a ham & cheese sandwich with hat pick. There's also carrots, one lonely little grape, a homemade granola bite in a (recycled HK candy box) container and bunch of blueberries.
Igloos! If you look closely, you can see the lines in the cheese. There's also celery, a Goldfish assortment, mini container of dried cherries, "snowball" mini marshmallows and blueberries.
Mary's little lamb! Ham sandwich with cheese topper, blueberries, dried cherries, homemade granola bite (with Mary pick!) and carrots. Done in 5 minutes!
Butterfly! This was another very fast lunch. "Peek-a-boo" PBJ sandwich with antennae picks, pre-cut apples (emergency snack for the baby at the grocery store), stack of Ritz crackers topped with a chocolate pretzel heart and three strawberries. I used a lot of silicone "baran" sheets to keep the wet foods away from the dry.
Frog! This sandwich was very fast with the help of my new CuteZCute cutter (I swear that's not an advertisement!), which was surrounded by mini Goldfish and blueberries. The left side has a checkered apple (always a hit!), carrots, strawberries in a silicone pea pod, and two mints.
Have a great week(end) and PIP your cute lunches, pretty please!
