Cute, right? Teddy bears! I pushed the little bear cookie cutter into the Jello, but it didn't turn out so well. The rest went great though. And Beaker ate every bite! Plus half a pear and three more apple rings. The sandwich is ketchup and bologna (yuck, but he loved it) cut with a bear shaped cookie cutter. I used a mini cookie cutter to make the cheesy bears, placing one in the center of the bigger bear sandwich and the rest are lounging on oyster crackers. The apple rings were a huge hit with Beaker. He though the bear was "WOW, so cute and nummy!" So easy, too. Just took an apple and sliced it, then used the cookie cutter to cut away the core in a fun shape. Totally making these again.

Fruity Jello Cups
So, last night I decided to use the cherries waiting in the fridge to make a batch of cherry crisp, and also to make fruity Jello cups. At around 11 pm. Not my best thought out plan ever! I got up a little earlier this morning and put Princess and Bean's lunches together instead of making them last night, like I usually do. I can not claim that I was entirely awake, but the lunches got made, so everyone wins. Brick and G-man decided they would just get lunch at school today. Good thing, since they have to get up and leave an hour earlier than the girls do. Not sure I could have even gotten pried my eyes open enough to throw food at a box at that hour! Mornings and I are not good friends. I am definitely a night person.
As you can imagine, sometimes it can be difficult feeding a kid with food allergies. Especially when nobody else in the family has those sa...
"But what will we feed them?!" The rallying cry heard all around, as more schools move toward a peanut and nut free system...
Today was the last day of school for four of my kiddos! I had this cool lunch idea all planned out, with flip flops and sunglasses and all ...
