Despicable Me and a storm
Posted June 26, 2012on:
We’ve been hunkered down all weekend and part of this week just trying to stay safe and dry form Tropical Storm Debby. We’ve had torrential downpours, flooding and 60 MPH gusts of wind. The girls wanted to watch Despicable Me while snuggling so I made a lunch to match.
The sandwich is Gru the so called villain of the movie. He’s made of Rudi’s Nut & Oat bread. His nose is the bread crust, his teeth are vegan cheese, his eyes are Florida grown lychee halves and the pupils and eyebrows are made from plums. The stars and rocket are homemade biscuits from the weekend. I made the minions from pineapple chunks and fruit leather for the goggles and eyes.
Our storm lunch is a lightning bolt made from the same Rudi’s bread. Above it are more of our homemade crackers shaped like clouds and an umbrella. In the yellow flower cup are plum sections with an umbrella pick. Below in the oval cup are red seedless grapes.
And the sides for my husband today are a salad made from baby kale, spinach and arugula. At the top right is edamame succotash with edamame, corn, tomatoes, white wine, garlic, parsley, basil, jalapeno peppers, and pepper. At the top left are lychee fruit unpeeled all packed in his Easy Lunch Box.
