"On the Go" Car-Themed Lunches!

Vroom vroom! I saved up colored heirloom tomatoes from our weekly farm share to make different colored ketchups... perfect for a stoplight lunch!

Teenie Driver
Organic raspberries, apples, green beans, and sugar snap peas; organic homemade red and
green ketchup, organic mustard, vegetarian "hot dog," mini peanut-butter cup
Friday, 9/27/13 - I used some mini red, yellow, and green muffin cups to hold the red and green homemade ketchups and some mustard, to make a traffic light. Stop! Go!

I boiled some gluten-free vegetarian hot dogs (SmartLife brand, or something like that) and cut them into "wheels" and put them in some car-shaped snack pots for both girls.

The mini peanut butter cups are from Trader Joe's, and I used a sharpie in a meh attempt to draw a wheel or steering wheel or something on the wrappers.

Organic raspberries, apples, tomatoes, and sugar snap peas; org. homemade ketchup, "hot dog," mini PB cup
I made sure all the fruits and veggies went with the traffic light theme too. Fun stuff!

The traffic signs and car wheel cupcake picks all came from a little bake supply shop, but there are similar themed traffic cupcake rings.

Snacks for the Road
Edamame, Naturebox Roasted Kettle Kernels
Wednesday, 10/9/13 - I sent these for Z's Kindy snack one day. I stuck a toy car pick to help eat the edamame. Plus it's a cute little car! Squee!

  1. Love the cups of dipping sauces for the hot dogs (which, by the way, was the reason I absolutely HAD to click over from Instragram… couldn't figure out what in the world they were!!) What a great looking lunch!! Love all the fruits and veggies!


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
