Wednesday, 12/19/12 - For the last day of school before the break, I wanted to be sure and have a fun, festive lunch. So naturally I fell asleep with the baby the night before and either had to pack lunch when I woke at 3am, or else risk not having enough time to pack anything in the morning. 3am it is!
Oh, Christmas Tree!
|PB-chocolate almond butter sandwich, Colby-Jack cheese, carrots and cucumbers, apples|
I cut and stamped some cheese trees with a mini tree cookie press. These are great fun for mini sandwiches, cheese, or melon and other softish fruits. Oh. And cookies.
Oh, Candy Tree!: For the sandwich, I used a vintage tree cutter from my mom when she got rid of our childhood stash of cutters. I used peanut butter to glue on a gummy star from Whole Foods and some dye-free Unreal candies (sent in a care package from my buddy Keeley from the Keeley McGuire Blog!)
She did end up eating all the cucumbers, but she made me get her some salt to sprinkle on, "the way Dadda does them!"
