Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens.
Brown paper packages, tied up with strings,
These are a few of my favorite things!
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes!
Silver white Winters that melt into Springs,
These are a few of my favorite things!
Honey Greek yogurt with honey on top,
Berries of all kinds, she never says stop.
Chocolate and sprinkles put her in good moods!
These are a few of her favorite foods.
Sandwiches made up of PB and honey.
(She) Loves fish eggs and bean sprouts, which I think is funny!
"Not orange cheese, just white cheese!" She's copping some 'tudes.
These are a few of her favorite foods!
When the cats scratch!
Find bro-ken dudes. [What she calls her humanoid toys.]
These things make her sad.
A "beautiful lunch" with her favorite foods,
And then she won't feel so bad!
Raindrops on Roses: "Raindrop" sugar sprinkles! And flower-shaped strawberry slices!
I got these little heart boxes at the Dollar Tree. 10/$1! In red, hot pink and light pink assorted! Win some in my bento giveaway! (link at top)
Whiskers on Kittens: Bean sprouts. For the whiskers. And little carrots using a mini cat cutter. I had to cut the carrots into strips crosswise to get a large enough area. Yes. She loves bean sprouts. We order her a side of sprouts at the Thai restaurants.
Bright Copper Kettles and Warm Woolen Mittens: No clue what to do for a kettle or mittens. I have 18 - that's right. Eighteen - mini Winter/Christmas cookie cutters. Are any of them mittens? Of course not. Plus there's no room to cram another food into my lyrics. So we're just ignoring this whole line. *sigh* Okay okay. I guess orange cheese is technically in the lyrics already. I decided to use my Food Writers to freehand shapes onto slices of cheese, then used a steak knife to cut them out. Bleah. I hate freehanding.
Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings: Chocolate fudge brownie bite. Omnomnom. Plus toffee licorice "string" from Ikea. Any kind of sweet is her favorite. But I had just one of these left. *sigh* I love her enough to give her my last brownie bite, instead of just using a mini Hershey's.
Girls in White Dresses With Blue Satin Sashes: I have a princess/bride cookie cutter, but it's too big for standard bread. So I made a PB Honey tortilla sandwich and used the cutter on it. Blue sugar sprinkles on a honey "sash." PB Honey is her current favorite sandwich. Except for tuna fish with pickles, but that would have been impossible to cut.
Snowflakes That Stay on My Nose and Eyelashes: String Cheese stick 'nibblets' kind of look like snowflakes. If you squint a little. Plus she's been refusing "orange cheese" (Colby Jack) and "yellow cheese" (cheddar) lately. And she's never liked Monterey Jack. So, this is it, cheese-wise, until I can figure something else out! I used the CoJack anyway, for the mitten and kettle, but I'll probably end up eating them.
Since she love love LOVES salmon roe (and all other colors/sizes of sushi fish eggs,) I had to incorporate them somehow. I had thought about making them the 'raindrops' on carrot roses, but the sugar and strawberries was just too perfect for that theme. So we have some Salmon Roeflakes to go with the cheese.
Silver White Winters That Melt Into Springs: Yogurt "winter." The honey looks more like pee than Spring, but work with me here, people! And it must be honey yogurt with honey on top. Greek honey yogurt, which tastes really good on its own, is just not good enough for Her Royal Highness.

I thought for sure she'd go for the salmon roe first, but the brownie bite was a close second. She surprised me and went for the brownie first, and spent some time working on eating the toffee licorice, which, in the past, she's rejected. Then she went for the salmon roe, quickly followed by the yogurt. "I need more honey yogurt with honey on top please!"
