Yoo Hoo...Tristan!!

Wanna come over for lunch? Bring your brother, bring your friends, and even your Mommy. This is how we sometimes get to eat strange looking robot guys:

(bologna, carrots and cheese)

or

a Stegosaurus

(ham, havarti cheese, grape tomatoes halved, raisin eyeball)

or BUTTERFLIES (this is our favourite and most requested)

(all beef salami and havarti on whole wheat with grape/cherry tomatoes halved, baby carrots)

or scary pumpkin face guy

(open faced all beef salami sammich on whole wheat, havarti carved most articulately)

or curly hair happy face

(french toast pieces and cantaloupe)

always a happy face

(you guessed it, tomatoes, cheese and meat - seeing a trend? WHATEVER WORKS DAMMIT!)

We love eating Rudolph!

(sammich, tomato nose, grapes eyes, pretzel antlers)

If we have shepherd's pie, the ketchup will always be displayed in your initial, we hear you like it that way, in fact, it is mandatory in our house so you won't be disappointed. So, whaddya think? Wanna come? We hope to see you soon...

Sharon - you can use grapes, orange pieces, green/red/yellow peppers...use anything they like.

T not that thrilled with tomatoes these days, but he'll still eat them if they are on a dinosaur.

Dani - I have something better than a measly butterfly for you.

Wow! You are so creative.

Now, if you can come up with a creative way of packaging healthy fruits and vegetables in such a way that they completely resemble the only foods my son eats (bread, bagels, waffles, noodles) I will be forever in your debt!

You rock nancy! Already used your Rudolf idea (except with grilled cheese and pretzels) and will keep those other ones in mind!
Ketchup and maple syrup are used daily to decorate/add letters around here.
