Give Thanks - Happy Thanksgiving!

Let me first apologize for the photo. Because this lunch was for the last day of school before Thanksgiving break, Z's afternoon preschool had a "Fall Feast" pageant and potluck, so Hubby worked from home that day so he could come watch.
Which meant Mama got to sleep in an extra hour while he got her up and ready for her morning preschool. The only problem was I had totally forgotten to finish packing her lunch and taking my photos! I had literally stepped out of the shower when Hubby came to ask me what she needed to take to school. Doh! I seriously considered going outside in the freezing cold while I was dripping wet wearing just my thin towel robe, so I could get a photo with the good light, but we just didn't have time. I asked him to add her dessert and take a photo.
He forgot to add the dessert before the picture, and blocked half the light with his arm. And didn't think to take a picture from an angle that would show the words on the sandwich. But he meant well. He even placed it on our wooden kitchen chair so there would be a nicer backdrop. *sigh*
PBJ sandwich, [missing TJ's Candy Cane Joe Joes,] apples, carrots, green beans, broccoli
Pin It
The empty silicone heart cup was for some Candy Cane Joe Joes cookies (like Oreos) from Trader Joe's. He remembered to add them in for me before packing the EasyLunchbox into her lunch bag (no ice pack, since I forgot to pack any dairy. Doh!)

I [Heart} Carrots: I used a mini heart cutter (mine came from a set that is discontinued, but it's roughly 1" tall) on some orange and yellow carrot coins, then a micro heart cutter to make smaller hearts in the middle, which I then swapped around.

Thankful For Sandwiches: I used a heart sandwich press (mine came from Williams-Sonoma a few years ago and doesn't appear to be available any more) to cut hearts out of two slices of bread, and a small heart cutter to cut a hole out of the top layer. Then a 3/4" heart cutter to cut a heart from that scrap to go in the middle.
Luckily I was able to spell GIVE THANKS without any duplicate letters, since I only have the one set of alphabet picks... so far... Not that you can tell from the photo. But trust me. It looked really cute. *sigh*
