At the school Lil O goes to we have to pack her lunch. They have a strict food rules due to allergies with the other children. No tree nuts. No sugar. No sugar filled juices and NO CHOCOLATE. Things like that.
One thing that has come out of those rules is my love for sunbutter!!! If you haven't tried sunbutter then you must. It's just ground up sunflower seeds. YUMMY!!!!!
It has fast become the only thing that Lil O will eat for lunch. A sunbutter and grape jelly sandwich, carrot sticks, some sort of crackers,
So, to make lunch extra special for her I started making her bread into heart shapes.
I will say that a few of my friends gave me a terribly hard time about making the bread into heart shapes. But it was a HIT with Lil O and her friends. She loved her heart bread!!!! I knew she would and it made her lunch extra special.
I even tried to bake a red heart mold into my bread once but it didn't turn out the way I had hoped after the bread had risen. We just called it tie-dye bread. It was even a hit too.
The only bad thing about cutting the bread into hearts is that it made the sandwich too small.
So, I came up with Plan C.
I took a heart cookie cutter. Dipped it into pink food coloring and pressed it into the sandwich.
Just genius I tell you!!!!!!!
So, tomorrow my baby is going to enjoy her sunbutter and grape jelly sandwich with the pink heart stamped on top and know that her mommy loves her.
Also, yesterday I crocheted Lil O some friendship bracelets for her two new friends at school. Today she came home without hers because she gave it to another girl. Now, that's a true friendship bracelet. I quickly crocheted three more for her to take to school tomorrow.
I am Supermom hear me ROAR!!!!!!!!!!
