When I was packing today's lunch I didn't intend for it to look so.... well, creepy! Once I took the picture I thought that the jewel picks really looked like shining rat eyes on that white pointy sandwich face. Monstro didn't say anything so I guess he didn't notice.
See, isn't it very rodent-like? After the lentils I guess I felt like I could slack a little. Plus, the dinner leftovers ended up as a midnight snack - woops!
This lunch is whole-grain white with spicy brown mustard and olive loaf (quartered and layered on top of each other), red pepper strips to the left of the fish, broccoli to the right of the fish and roasted butternut with cinnamon in the fish. The top tier is 1/2 of an orange-chocolate chip cookie, a tiny fork for the squash and a little cup of fuyu persimmon slices.
Monstro has gotten into the habit lately of tossing his lunch around like a hot potato. I warned him that he'd get persimmon juice on his cookie and he got awfully excited at the prospect. Then, after dinner, he asked for cookie and persimmon for dessert. He was going to layer them together to eat them. I guess persimmon juice makes a nice dip for cookies....
