A Puzzling Lunch on Muffin Tin Monday

I confess that as the school year draws to a close I'm becoming lazy about creative lunches for Pierce.  This past week Pierce found himself with a puzzling lunch combination:
He has a Trader Joe's Apple/Carrot crusher, some yogurt covered raisins, animal crackers that were not animals but letters/numbers, and a puzzle shaped cheese and mustard sandwich.  I found the puzzle sandwich cutter in Walmart, in the baby section - next to the sippy cups.  They are new from Munchkin, and there were other designs as well.  Cute, huh?

That puzzle sandwich is cool. My middle son officially gave up sandwiches. We send fruit and veggies and dip now instead.

Very cute sandwich. My neighbor's little great granddaughter would love this!

Angela said...

That is cute Lisa! I will have to look for the puzzle cookie cutter because that would be a big hit at my house too! Do you think my soon to the high school daughter would want to have her lunch to look like that? lol I know my 8 year old would love it.

Lazy? Never! I love that puzzle cutter! I think I need one for my toast :)

Valerie said...

I love the puzzle sandwich too-and the letter and number animal crackers. Amy is so tired of making her lunch she's been buying it more often. Luckily-she makes pretty good choices in the cafeteria in spite of what kids can buy.

Happy Monday Lisa!

Love that luncb! How lucky your Pierce is to have such an inventive Mum to prepare his lunches...looks better than school fare for sure! Still recovering from surgery, so not as active lately, but taking this hour to post and visit friends...glad I did! This is worth sharing if you don't mind!

I love the last day of school when we don't have to make lunches anymore. I love summers for the little things like that. :)

What a fun lunch. I love that idea. I bet it is getting hard to think of new things. You have done so many creative lunches that ... what is left?

Michaele said...

Oh I have this overwhelming urge to make one of these just so I can smoosh the puzzle pieces together. You bring out the kid in all of us I think.

Tracy said...

Love the puzzle cut out...do you think Nicholas would flip out in middle school if I cut his PBJ into puzzle pieces? He'd actuallythink it was cool :)

SO cool! My 5 year old will need to bring his lunch to school almost every day next year because he's such a picky eater, so I'm going to be using your ideas...I love them :)

Jo said...

SO CUTE. I totally ordered these sandwich cutters. One question: Do you know if they are dishwasher safe? I already threw away the packaging and now I don't know. :)
