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. Please click on the photo to see her other great lunches.

And to find out how to make one of your own, Shannon put together this great tutorial for Van’s Foods on their blog here: Van’s Foods Holiday Waffle ideas.

Here’s the one I made for my little one’s lunch:

Waffle snowmanI used Whole Foods 365 brand of dairy free, eggless mini waffles and toasted them lightly.  I spread in WOWbutter (nut free soy spread) and a bit of cranberry apple spread inside.  I lined up the 3 small sandwiches and cut a small fruit leather scarf and mouth from Stretch Island brand fruit leather.  I stuck a tiny carrot sliver for a nose on with more WOWbutter and the same for the 2 raisin eyes.  Inside the Easy Lunchboxes container was also an organic Crimson Gold mini apple and a coconut covered date and raisin ball treat.  In the top are fresh blueberries and strawberry slices with snowman cupcake toppers for decoration.

Snowflakes and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

As the rest of the country is under a blanket of snow and ice, it’s forecasted to be 83 here today.  A little difficult to get in the Christmas spirit.  I certainly can’t break out the cute boots and scarves with the tropical heat cooking here.  Anyone else feel like holiday shopping hit them too Continue Reading

Frosty the Snowman

Ok, well he’s a mashed potato snowman.  I live in Florida!  It’s the closest my kids will ever get here.  So I got two HUGE bags of organic potatoes this week in our organic co-op box of fruits and vegetables.  I decided we could never finish them all unless I made something big with them.  Continue Reading
