Yesterday I decided to make the kids something different for lunch. Maybe I was subconsciously trying to somehow make up for all of my inadequacies as a mother by presenting an inventive lunch. I don't know. Anyway, here is what I came with.
The ears are a quesadilla, cut like a pizza. The eyebrows are celery sticks. The eyes are dried cherries. The nose and mouth are ranch veggie dip. I used a syringe for dispensing medicine to draw the mouth. And the whiskers are carrots. I think the kids liked them. Emma was the most excited, as you can tell by the picture. Michael actually ate all of his, and cleaned up what the girls left on their plates. For him, this is amazing, because it is hard to get him to eat at meals. Hooray!
