Quick summer lunches can be as easy as breaking out that container of cookie cutters. It takes no more time than a normal lunch to do these. I started with candy eyes which I still use sometimes, but fruits & vegetables can be just as quick. I recommend using leftovers from dinner & getting creative rather than cutting into new fruits & veggies. I often pack a small container of leftovers while we’re cleaning up dinner of things that I could include in the kids’ lunches.
Today’s lunches were simple. Miss A has a hedgehog with a black bean for an eye. At the top left is a quinoa salad I made the night before that makes great leftovers. It was made of quinoa, black beans, lemon juice and lemon zest, tomatoes and green onions. At the top right are halved green grapes with a watermelon crown.
Miss G had a cartoon looking dinosaur sandwich for her lunch. At the top left are honeydew and watermelon animals at at the right in the green clover are edamame.
