It’s the 1st day of February and I thought it might be fun between now and Valentine’s Day to show different ways to make fun and creative lunches using heart shapes. My goal is to find several uses for this heart cookie cutter set I added to my collection earlier in the year. Since I have two boys who wouldn’t want to be embarrassed with a glaring heart and “I LOVE YOU” messages in their lunch I’m going to have to get creative and find some sneaky ways to add heart shapes in their lunches. Today’s lunch is for my littlest guy who absolutely ADORES puppies. We don’t have a dog but I have a friend who let’s her dog come over to play with our boys every once in a while. It’s always a huge treat for my son and he loves nothing more than taking the dog for a walk, playing fetch with him and feeding him lots and lots of ice cubes (this particular dog loves ice cubes)!
The puppy lunch includes a turkey and cheese sandwich with upside down heart nose cut out of cheese, I cut one large heart out of a piece of cheese and sliced them to look like ears, grapes, cottage cheese, celery and peanut butter (you could use sunbutter if nut allergies are a concern), and a peanut butter/chocolate chip mini muffin The lunch is packed in a Planet Lunch Box which is available HERE
