"WHAT?!" you say. Why would I choose to go to my mother-in-law's house? And why would I go without my husband there as a buffer? I'll tell you why! Not only do I enjoy hanging around all my in-laws [it's okay, you can be jealous,] but going to Nana's is as close to a vacation as a Mama ever gets! Nana gets the glasses of water. She makes the food. She mitigates the squabbles. And she insists that she doesn't mind! That she LOVES watching the kids. Good enough for me! Half the time I visit I manage to take a snooze right there in the living room! *Bliss!* Plus I like talking to her and stuff too.
So this was the next best thing to having Hubby home for our anniversary. I got a break from being the responsible party for the day! Anyway, I packed lunches for the ride up, and to snack on while there.

I used the FunBites square cutter on some gluten-free bread, then added the spreads as I skewered the bread squares onto the bride and groom stir sticks (with the ends snipped off to fit into the EasyLunchbox.)
