Lunch time at our house
Okay, I already put this on facebook, but I was recently reminded that not everyone does that kind of thing, so here's what I've been experimenting with for lunch:
(Okay, for some reason this picture won't rotate, so sorry)
I thought I'd make the octopus hot dog for Tyler and the apple/peanut butter flower for Nicole. Turns out, they both liked both things and the wheel pasta with parsley was the icing on the cake. I have to try new things with food to keep my kids interested. For breakfast lately I've been making "egg pizza". It's just scrambled eggs, but I make it flat like a crepe and then cut it into wedges like pizza. Sometimes I put food coloring in it too. Today they had pink egg pizza. I guess I just get bored making the same thing every single day.
It's been 3 days and the kids are still requesting the hot dog octopus. Today I made Ramen noodles instead of wheel pasta and I dyed them blue so it would look like water. Unfortunately, I put it on a blue plate so the noodles looked green! Oh well, Tyler said it was seaweed. Whatever works I guess. If anyone has any other brilliant ideas to make lunch food more appealing, please let me know!
