Hearts & Butterfly

Posted on: September 15, 2011

It’s been well over a week since I’ve made a decent meal for my kids so thank you for being so patient as we recover from our ailments!  The girls are both back for their half days of preschool this week.  Little A, who is 19 months, is either finishing her whole lunch or barely eating.  She adores school so sometimes she’s just distracted.  She has definitely decided for now that she does not like sandwiches so I have to be very creative with what to feed her. Miss G on the other hand only wants peanut buttter & jelly or turkey & cheese on whole grain bread every single day.  Yesterday she requested a butterfly.  I used a plastic cookie cutter (SUPER simple), cut the body out of strawberry fruit leather & stuck candy heart decorations on the wings with honey.  The antennae are decorative picks.

Miss G’s favorite fruit as of late is pluots.  They’re a hybrid of a plum & apricot mixed.  They look like a wild plum.  There are a few different varieties, but our favorite kind is the dapple dandies.  They taste like a slice of candy.  If you haven’t had one, they are a must try in any variety.  Her fruit container has half of a pluot sliced underneath, heart shaped strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.

Miss A got leftover Annie’s Organic spiral macaroni with edamame mixed in, Babybel cheese hearts on top with 2 of the candy heart decorations on top. On the left side in the silicone sheep are cashews and above are mandarin oranges, blackberries and raspberries.  The girls both had Lifeway kefir pouches and apple sauce as well.
