Cheese Eyes


We are here in New Jersey digging ourselves out of the snow. The "blizzard" of all existence was, well, not quite that. I was explaining to a friend that the storm that took place was the best possible case scenario. It caused so much panic and chaos that my husband didn't have to go into the office for a couple of days, but there wasn't much snow to be had. When I say "wasn't much snow", there was still about 6-8 inches. Not much for where we live, but it was enough to have fun! And, even better, it was an excuse to not leave the house. Lots of warm cuddles and love was had in our home over the last couple of days. Awwwww.

With all that being said, it's the end of January which means it's time to start preparing for LOVE lunches. Yes, my friends, it's almost Valentine's Day! I'll soon be putting together a round up of Valentine's lunches from last year, but until I do that, I have a little secret. You do not need fancy tools for Valentine lunches. All you need is to perfect the art of the strawberry heart that you see here.

Harper's lunch is in an EasyLunchboxes container. She has red pepper slices, Rold Gold Tiny Twists Pretzels in a Wilton Silicone Square Baking Cup and a stick of string cheese that I cut in half to make two little cheese people. Those two little cheese people were created by using these Fun Eyes Bento Food Picks and it couldn't have been easier! She also has a strawberry heart (trust me on this one, learn how to make them!) and a hard boiled egg.
