Each school day I make fun school lunches for my kids. It started in preschool when my son refused to stay for lunch bunch and I needed a bribe. He never actually exclaimed, "I love school, I don't want to go home!", but he did agree to spend another couple hours at school. I considered this a victory and have been making fun lunches ever since.
Each lunch that I make takes less than 10 minutes and requires very little skill. I make a lot of rice balls but switched it up a couple days this week.
The first lunch was the snake quesadilla. I used cheese and tortillas to make a quick quesadilla in the microwave. Once it cooled, I cut a spiral starting at the outside of the tortilla.
I used Food Markers to make the scales and face. I added a thin slice of carrot for the tongue.
I was pretty impressed with my work on this snake lunch. But it came back untouched by my kids. Apparently I made the same mistake I made on my Spaghetti Squid lunch. Too scary.
Needing my next lunch to be a sure-thing, I went with the waffle sandwich.
I added some Food Picks to make it more fun.
This lunch won me rave reviews. Some times the simplest things...
Now I'm off to Pintrest for simple, non-scary, ideas for next week!
