Angel, tree and Santa’s sleigh
Posted December 15, 2011on:
I found out today that Miss G will be in angel in her Christmas program tomorrow. Nothing like finding out last minute! I guess she decided that it wasn’t important enough to tell me. Today she had an angel shaped Wow! soybutter and jelly sandwich in her LunchBots stainless bento box. I “painted” the wings with honey and sprinkled on snowflake candy to make them white. The halo is a snack from a friend who sent Asian treats. If I only read Japanese, I could tell you what they are! They tasted sort of like salty potato chip rings. She has bread crust hair, eyes and mouth. The BabyBel cheese has a small angel cutout and the wax leftover was placed on the sandwich for fun. In the red silicone cup are mandarin oranges with sunflower seeds covered with red, white & green chocolate. I love them because they look like little ornaments or the vintage colored lights. Also hidden to the far right is a long pick of fresh blueberries.
Miss A has actually been eating more of her mini sandwiches so I decided to try again today. She got a tree and Santa’s sleigh on whole wheat with ham and provolone inside with a side of leftover Annie’s Organic macaroni shells to the right. I put tree and star shaped marshmallow shapes on top for her treat. She also had a mini container of mandarins sprinkled with the same sunflower seeds. Both girls also had Lifeway flavored kefir with lunch.
OK. So posting this a day later, the sunflower seeds on mandarins was a terrible idea. The chocolate melted & made them look nasty! In the future I’d only put them on something that isn’t so runny or if you’re serving them right away it should be fine.
Hope everyone finds some peace and enjoyment during the holiday chaos!
