Lunch Made Simple: I {Heart} Tuna

Wednesday, 1/23/13 - Since my chicken salad lunch hadn't gone over too well ("It was too sweet,") I decided to try an old favorite - tuna salad. She normally has it on a sandwich, with (dye-free) pickles. But I'm usually too lazy to go through all that trouble. So fish and crackers it is!
Grapes, cheddar and mozzarella, carrots, tuna salad, Kashi crackers, Ranch dressing (see top photo)
I think this was the first time using our new EasyLunchboxes Brights - guess who is a big fan of the purple lid? 
I wanted to make this lunch fairly simple, so I pretty much just put everything into silicone muffin cups to keep them separate and to add color.
The Kashi crackers are in a square muffin cup (since it looks better than a round one in that compartment of the EasyLunchbox.) 

I cut some "cubes" (more like "rectangles") of cheddar and mozzarella cheese and alternated them on some long heart skewers. I love these picks!

heart pick in the grapes to keep up the heart theme, and some Ranch dressing for the carrots in a Mini Dipper that went into her cooler bag separately.

The little hearts on top of the tuna salad (chunk light tuna and olive oil mayo. Very complex recipe...) are from a dye-free pickle slice. I can't remember where I got that tiny heart cutter, but this one is the closest I've seen to it. 

The little scooper spoon was from an ice cream shoppe. It's #5PP plastic, same as the EasyLunchboxes, so safe to wash and reuse!
