Cute lunches: choo choo

A cute choo choo lunch to happily take us into the weekend.

I used my train sandwich cutter to cut the shapes from a peanut butter and banana sandwich. I love this cutter with its interlocked train shapes which minimises the wastage from a slice of bread.

The windows are banana slices and the wheels are fruit buttons (a recent find in the healthy snack aisle of my supermarket). The tracks are fruit peelers (a similar idea to cheese strings but using fruit purees) and the smoke is popcorn (which I broke up into smaller pieces for Nicholas after I took the photo; see my warning about giving popcorn to children in my previous post).

Wishing you a weekend that’s choo choo exciting!

Cute Lunches: Easter snacking plate

With Easter bunny coming tonight, this is the last of our cute plates for Easter. Today it was a snacking plate.

I used an egg-shaped cookie cutter for the sandwiches. I mixed a little food colouring in water and decorated the top slices. The sandwiches have a light curried egg filling: mashed boiled egg, some mayonnaise and a pinch of mild curry powder.

I made an avocado dip by mashing up half an avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of salt, serving it inside a plastic Easter egg with some carrot sticks for dipping.

Hoping the Easter bunny brings you lots of goodies!
