Hannah's typical lunch looks a lot like mine, but without the bread. She loves hard salami (a.k.a. spicy meat), and likes cheese in sliced or stringed variety. We always have a few carrots for crunch and to up our daily veggie intake. And we pile on lots of fruit - whatever's in season. One of the advantages of such a predictable lunch is that Hannah can make it herself...if someone will open the refrigerator door for her, that is.
But something possessed me this week to mix things up a little bit. Maybe it's all those back-to-school "make your lunch awesome" articles I've been seeing in women's magazines. I don't know. In any case, I decided to make Hannah's lunch into a butterfly. I didn't add any new or special ingredients. I didn't spend very much time cutting or slicing or chopping (although I did spend a few seconds doing this).
And then, after a few days of butterflies, I decided to see what else I could come up with. Introducing Mr. Salami Mouse!
And the next day, Hannah asked if she could have a rabbit lunch. In retrospect, I realize that she thought the mouse was a rabbit, but this is what I came up with.
