Okay, this is bad. This is really bad. See that “thing” over there? My 7 year old asked me if it was a gingerbread man this morning. I’m not sure what I should be most concerned about: his lack of visual imagination or my lack of skill. It’s a TURKEY, for crying out loud.
Granted, this past weekend was jam packed and I had no food in the house. I had to deal. And I saw this post this morning and was very much inspired. Sometimes I should leave good enough alone, no?
For the record, I will be reattempting the turkey sandwiches.
The Contents – Pear, grapes and a brownie bite. A turkey in the field.
The Details – So, the broccoli is supposed to be trees and underneath the sandwich are Calabee peas, which is supposed to be a grassy field. The sandwich is a pita stuffed with turkey or soynut butter and bananas topped with pea eyes, a cheese beak and a half a grape gobble (that was my daughter’s idea – I’m so proud). The feathers are made of carrots and pear slices.
The Verdict – Obviously, the proportions were wrong. Very wrong. But, you know, the kids ate their lunch and they liked it. Despite the fact that my son had everything wrong about this lunch, his belly was full. And my daughter, who got the soynut butter and banana sandwich found great delight in telling me that she “did not have a turkey sandwich.” 3rd grade humor at its best.
To prove that I can poke fun at myself, I am even posting this abysmal failure over on What’s For Lunch. Hopefully I can bring a smile to a someone’s face.
