Submarine and an octopus
Posted May 16, 2012on:
School’s almost over for us. It’s hard to believe since the days drag, but the weeks fly. This week is a continuation of Under The Sea theme. Miss G requested a submarine. I have to admit it would be one of the last things I ever would have come up with. It was so creative that I agreed.
She has a Justin’s Almond Butter and jam on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread. I used a rolling pin to flatten the bread before hand cutting the submarine. It has fruit leather portholes. She has a date whale with coconut flakes on top next to the boat. At the top left are mango slices with a blowfish pick and at the top right are watermelon slices with a small sea turtle pick.
I didn’t feel like making 2 subs so Miss A got an octopus today. Hers was cut from a biscuit cutter and then I used the biscuit cutter to cut “legs” out of the remaining bread. His hat is a date roll with coconut flakes shaped into a hat. The eyes are candy eyes stuck on with almond butter and so is the fruit leather mouth. At the top left is a mandarin orange with a dolphin pick, at top right are watermelon pieces with an octopus baran (food separator), and in the yellow oval are mango pieces with an octopus pick.
My husband has a salad & sides to go with his lunch today. His salad is organic romaine lettuce,with a locally grown, sliced tomato courtesy of my generous neighbor (Thank you!), unsalted, raw walnuts, mini carrots and cauliflower. At the top left are dried apricots and a date roll with coconut flakes and at the top right are watermelon slices. All 3 lunches today are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.
