It’s been quite a while since I’ve been feeling super creative, but the Christmas season seems to spread its cheer throughout my home. My little girls recently had their holiday performances so they’ve been belting out Christmas and Hanukkah songs, playing with our decorations and begging for fancy, fun lunches. Here are a few I managed to sneak out this week.
One of my girls had a WOWbutter (soy based nut-free butter) and jam sandwich with a couple of stars. I spread more WOWbutter on the top and sprinkled it with little colored “ornaments”. In the top of her Easy Lunchboxes container are mango pieces on the left and red seedless grapes on the top right.
These candy canes are made from Rudi’s Organic whole wheat bread. Inside is Daiya brand dairy free strawberry cream cheese and jam, definitely a special treat. On the top I spread more strawberry dairy-free cream cheese and fruit leather stripes. I threw in some mini gingerbreads for good measure. In the top, was the same fruit combination of fresh organic mangos and seedless red grapes in her Easy Lunchboxes container.
As a kid, I always looked forward to the night when the Charlie Brown Christmas special was on TV. This lunch is definitely more my nostalgia than my kids’, but they still love the fun. In the top of the Easy Lunchboxes are kiwi slices and organic red raspberries.
Charlie is a sandwich made from Rudi’s Organic whole wheat bread. I hand cut the fruit leather for his face and clothing details. The sad little tree is bread, rosemary for the branches, a grape tomato for the ornament and unsweetened shredded coconut flakes for a tad bit of fake snow.
For the next fantastic lunch, please hop on over to Keitha’s Chaos! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Holidays to all!
