An apple a day and 2 elephants at play
Posted August 11, 2011on:
I was a bit apple happy this morning so Miss G got an apple shaped sandwich on whole wheat with peanut butter, jelly & honey. I put some green sprinkles on the leaf part of the sandwich. This picture isn’t the greatest 🙂 The strawberries are all cut into small apples. I used a small tulip cutter to make mozzarella string cheese flowers & put them on picks with leaves. I halved an apple after using the same large apple cutter. Then soak the apple in some kind of citrus juice and water to prevent browning. Little G loves lemon juice so that’s what I used today. I also used some cute separators to keep the sandwich from getting soggy.
Little A joined her sister for the morning at school again today. She got two little elephant sandwiches, cashews for nibbling along with a couple of pecans, sun shaped strawberries and a mozzarella cheese stick cut for grass underneath. In the small round bento, she also got leftover Annie’s mac & cheese with a cut up a Dominex brand vegetarian eggplant meatball which she loves. Both kids drink ice water and get a pouch of Lifeway Kefir in their lunches.
