Flowerlicious on Muffin Tin Monday

Last week we went to pick strawberries (more on that later this week) and we still had plenty of strawberries to use up even after I canned some jam and made a couple of batches of fruit leathers.  So Pierce got a fun flower in his lunch box.

Strawberries and kiwi with a small piece of homemade sour cream pound cake forming the center of the flower.  A cheese and mustard sandwich on homemade honey whole wheat bread with a bunny skewer of olives and Annie's cheddar bunnies on the side.  Looks like May to me!

Cute flower! You must have gotten a ton of strawberries to be able to do all that! I am a bit jealous

You're really very creative with these things... Perhaps I could have gotten my kids to eat healthier if I had tried this years ago!... it's STILL a struggle!

Heather said...

What a cute lunch! I never end up with anything so creative. My kids like to snack, so we make mainly snack type lunches. It works out well. :-)

Love the strawberry flower. And it's great that you made jam and fruit leathers--deep in winter, it's nice to enjoy the bounty from the spring!

Yummy yum yum! When I was a child I lived in a strawberry growing part of the UK, strawberry fields all around. I love to eat these delicious sweet berries. Lunch box full of goodness again.

Oh My Gosh...I just love fruit leather. I used to make it for TJ's kids and it took everything I had to stay out of it myself.
