Groundhog Day lunch

Yesterday was Groundhog day.  My kids don’t really understand since our winter in Florida classifies as a normal fall day anywhere else in the country.  However, they do love anything animal related and cute.

Miss G had to stay home to go to the dentist today, and so Miss A, now my “big girl” 4 year old went off to school alone this morning.  I showed her my idea, and she loved it.

Groundhog Day with CuteZCute

I used the CuteZCute cutter face frame to cut the sandwich shapes for the groundhog’s face with Rudi’s Organic Whole Wheat bread.  I used the pig ear and eye face frame to cut the holes and a mini circle cutter to cut the nose out of the bread heel.  Miss G loves WOWbutter soy spread and asked for strawberry preserves today.  I used pumpkin seeds stuck on with WOWbutter for the groundhog’s teeth.  In the bottom section of her LunchBots Trio are yellow carrot pennies and strawberry hearts sliced in half.  In the top left section of her lunch are peeled apples sliced horizontally and seeded with a mini star cutter.

Happy Monday!

Snowflakes and ornaments for lunch

I think the whole country is cold today!  We woke up to 45 here which is chilly for Florida.  In Minnesota where I grew up, it’s a balmy 19 degrees this morning.  I only miss the snow and winter for about a week at Christmas time.  My favorite thing as a kid was to go Continue Reading

Present under the tree and another reindeer

Happy Friday!  I am looking forward to wrapping up my holiday shopping this weekend and braving the post office to get everything mailed out. Miss A could eat an entire bowl of steamed edamame so I decided to make a big portion of her lunch the pods leftover from dinner.  She also wanted a sandwich Continue Reading
