Waffle snowman lunch

Hope everyone’s back in the swing of routine by now.  We’re doing our best to get back on track too.  I remembered from a while back my friend Shannon at Bento Lunch did the cutest waffle snowman sandwich I’d seen in a while.  I decided to do my best to replicate her work since it was so awesome.  Here’s Shannon’s original lunch below.
