Making faces

I've been looking at bento boxes a bit too much recently. I really love the idea of opening your lunchbox at work and having something fun look back at you! And, fortunately, kids are a great excuse to play with food anyways.



So, on Monday night, I couldn't sleep, so I got up at one in the morning and made a little teddy bear sandwich for Nils. It's got yeast spread on it, and ears and a snout made of cheese. The eyes and nose are raisins, and the mouth is a little sliver of veggie sausage. The stuff at the top of the pic are little stars cut out of the leftover sandwich.



For tomorrow, I made him a kitty cat. Again it's yeast spread (I'm not a very imaginative sandwich filler... It's always either yeast spread or cheese...), but with tofu ears. Cucumber eyes, apple snout, raisin nose, yay! It also comes with some extra apple stars.

I hope he likes it. He ate all of the other one, according to the nursery. No mention was made of weather he gasped in awe beforehand.
