I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

Tomorrow's lunch ended up being a collaboration between Haley and I. I started out without really knowing what I was going to make. It started off as a face with the star hair, icing eyes, a sugar nose (now not included) and the fruit leather mouth. Haley walked up and said "Can you make it a clown?" So, I changed out the sugar nose with a bigger circle made from dyed provolone. Then she said "He needs cheek things and eye brows" and voila! This is what we came up with:

  • Ham and cheddar cheese with honey mustard in a whole wheat mini pita. Provolone clown with cheddar hair, icing eyes, cucumber peel eyebrows, fruit leather mouth, and dyed provolone cheeks and nose.
  • Blueberry and pineapple slices
  • Steamed broccoli
  • Babybel with star cutouts
  • Hershey kiss
