Today was my attempt at a pilgrim. I ended up using a gingerbread man cookie cutter rather than hand cutting as I had hoped. The letters and buckle on the hat and the mouth are apple fruit leather. For the pilgrim’s eyes, I used small candy pieces. The acorns are dried apricots. I found a bag of organic orchard apples at my local grocery store which are the perfect toddler size. The “give thanks” is on sliced green apples. The red BabyBel cheese with maple leaf removed is below the small apple, and on the bottom right are raspberries.
Little Miss A had a simple lunch today since she is discarding most of the bread I send. She gets turkey rolled up, mozzarella string cheese sliced, and on the right are watermelon chunks underneath dried apricot leaves. Both girls get ice water and flavored kefir with their lunches.
