Warhol for lunch

It’s is Art Appreciation week at Miss A’s school.  She just turned 3, but it’s never too early for art appreciation in my opinion.  Who doesn’t love paintings, colors and getting messy with art?  I like her art best because her teacher this year lets her do her own thing.  She gets very little help on her projects, and I love them because I know she did them.  Thanks, Miss Marcy!

My friend and I were talking on the phone when this idea popped into my head for a bento box.  So for lunch I decided to carry the Mickey Mouse theme over from last weekend and try my lunch interpretation of Andy Warhol’s Mickey Mouse artwork.  He had many versions of Mickey.  Below is the one most have probably seen.

With a little help from some editing…my own lunchy Warhol.

Happy Lunch Packing!

Things I used for this lunch:

Mickey, Minnie, summer grain salad and a mixed green lunch

I couldn’t resist.  The girls have Mouse fever.  Like Hello Kitty, they can never get enough of Disney.  I found some Mickey & Minnie sandwich cutters on eBay, and I had to have them.  I made them chocolate almond butter and agave nectar sandwiches with fresh fruit.  From the top are pineapple, pear, mango and Continue Reading

The Mouse-Mickey, that is

And we’re off.  School’s off, it’s Memorial Day weekend, and we’re using the last day of our 3 day passes to visit DisneyLand for the day.  I think I’ve mentioned before just how fortunate we are.  We live near one of the top beaches in the U.S. (Siesta Key) and we’re under a 2 hour Continue Reading

Mickey Mouse and 3 little bears

I admit that I’m having a bit of trouble finding my creative energy to make fun lunches this calendar year.  I’m still quite busy putting the house back together and getting organized after the holidays.  You will definitely see some changes in the girls’ lunches this new year.  We are trying to better our health, Continue Reading
