The Deep Blue Sea: A Kid Lunch


I saw this idea in a magazine a while back and decided to try it out for this week's Fun Food Friday.


I'm making the Garlic-Avocado Sammies for dinner tonight, so figured I could use the spread from that as the water.  I'll post the recipe next week, but it's basically cream cheese and avocado.  I put a drop of blue food coloring in a small amount of it to do the lunch.

The base is a rice cake.  A bagel or any sort of bread would work.  I'm sure you all know what the fishy crackers are. The rest is just stuff I dug out of the fridge and yard.  Broccoli, cherry tomatoes, garlic chives, basil, and cucumber.


Here's lunch on the plate:








They were near identical, but here's the other one:



I'm so glad it's Friday.
Have a good weekend!

  2. Oh my gosh Mindy.... I'm such an inadequate mother. The most exciting meal Izzy sees is if it makes it to her Dora plate instead of a plain plate :D You amaze me!

    1. I don't see why not - a little extra dairy never hurt anyone! :)
