Robin Lunch & #FunFoodFriday

Apart from Monday, when I was taking part in a blog hop so needed to get my post published, I haven’t posted to the blog this week. I haven’t even turned on the laptop.  I’ve barely looked at my phone, and have spent a fair few of my rare free minutes staring vacantly into space.  Lunches have been made, but I haven’t blogged about them yet.  The reason being that, like a lot of people at this time of year, I am utterly exhausted.

I’m not posting this to beg for sympathy, rather to confirm that I’m only human, just like everyone else.  A lovely follower commented recently on one of my Instagram photos ‘Are you superwoman?’ and I had to laugh.  I may be able to rustle up fun lunches every day, but in other areas of my life, I frequently fall down.  My house currently looks like a toy shop exploded over it, I struggle to keep on top of the endless laundry and every day that I manage to get to school on time feels like a major victory.

So if my blog post are a little infrequent of late, that’s the reason why.  I am most definitely not superwoman, and I’m in desperate need of more sleep!  If only my lovely Small Baby would agree with me on that subject…

Still, as I mentioned above, lunches have still been created on a daily basis, all with a vaguely Christmassy theme to them.  Today’s lunch was quick and simple, my attempt at an edible robin!

In this lunch Small Child had a quesadilla, filled with grated cheddar cheese, sliced German sausage and red pepper pieces.  I cut the cooked quesadilla into a circle, and decorated it with an edible marker pen, a spare German sausage slice and a carrot beak and feet to make a robin. I cut a couple of Christmas trees from the quesadilla offcuts, which I popped under the robin (not shown), and added some pretzel stick ‘branches’ for it to stand on. On the side Small Child had raw organic carrot and red pepper disks, a sliced plum and some red grapes.  I added alphabet picks spelling out ‘ROBIN’ to the fruit.
