This spring has been crazy busy in the Storms household, but I have managed to photograph a couple of particularly cute lunches to share. =)
This was for my son's zoo field trip. I based the monkey quesadilla on the monkey valentines I made this year. I like working with tortillas because they are so easy to cut. He is made up of both wheat and flour tortillas cut from a bunch of different cookie cutters I had in my stash ... circles for the face and ears, an upside down pumpkin for the second layer, part of a rocket ship trimmed for the oval, and the eyes are the bottom of a mini candy cane cutter I had. Being resourceful! I trimmed the eyes and mouth from bread crust for a dark color. The layers are all "glued" together with shredded cheese baked in the oven.
To finish off the theme I added animal cookies (I asked my husband to get them and I didn't mean frosted because it takes away all of the animal features!) and a little giraffe fork for the melons. Why is the giraffe so sad???
Around Easter I made these bunny sandwiches with cookie cutters. We had some large bread slices leftover from a camping trip so I got two bunnies from each sandwich. I smooshed mini marshmallows for the tails. To make sure they stayed on I added a drop of melting chocolates I keep on hand for stuff like cake pops. The kids really liked these.
To round out the theme I added carrots, of course, and a little bit of Annie's Fruity Bunnies mixed in with almonds =).
