L Is For Lion: A Kid Lunch

This day isn't exactly going the way I had planned.  You know when you have a ton of things you want to get done and then your children completely rearrange their "schedule"?  I swear it's like they do it on purpose.  Baby takes a nap EVERY morning.  Always.  Today, she didn't go down until 12:30.  What the heck?  So much for a productive morning.  Oh well, there's always tomorrow, right?

I still got one fun lunch accomplished.  I told The Kid I'd make him a Fun Food Friday snack after school instead, since I blew it again for him this week.

For The Girl, I made a peanut butter and honey sammie and cut it into a circle for the lion's face.  His mane is carrots, ears are nectarine, nose is nectarine and a dried cranberry.  Candy eyes.  Nectarine L's and animal crackers around the rim.

Here's lunch on her plate:

He kinda looks more like a bear with a sunburst behind his head than a lion.
Ah well, she liked him.

Tomorrow night is my sister's annual Fall Party, which means food, food, and more food. 
Whatever shall I do?
Oh, I know, eat myself sick.
I'll be trying out a new recipe I found on Pinterest and she'll be making a couple new things off my It's Fall Ya'll Pinterest board as well.
I shall report back with photos.
Enjoy the weekend!


  1. And G is for "GAG" me!! That is too stinkin' cute!!

  2. Freaking adorable. This might be why my kid is such a poor eater, her plates always look boring. Every time I see you do these I think, "I've got to try this!!!"


I love and appreciate all your comments. So don't be shy, just say it!
