Good morning, I hope you all had a lovely weekend! It was Mothering Sunday yesterday, and I was thoroughly spoilt with a lie-in, breakfast in bed, a handmade card and flowers from my lovely boys! All this means that Easter must be just around the corner, in fact due to Easter falling late this year, the Easter holidays begin at the end of this week for us, eek! This has led me to break out the Easter supplies and start making some Easter themed lunches, with today’s lunch having a chick theme.
In this lunch Small Child had leftover home made potato wedges, a hard boiled egg (which was a bit of an experiment, so I’m pleased with how it turned out!), organic natural yoghurt, topped with some yellow sprinkles, half a kiwi fruit, cut open in a zig-zag pattern with a sharp knife, chopped dried apple rings, cucumber and raw carrot slices, cut and arranged in an attempt to look like a chick peeping out of an egg (it did originally have a beak too, it must have fallen off!), and finally some dried apricots. I decorated the lunch with these super cute duck and egg picks, and added a hen spoon from our mini bento cutlery set. To make the egg, I cut around the whole egg with the tip of a sharp knife in a zig-zag pattern, being careful not to go all the way through. Once I’d got all the way around, I carefully lifted the top of the egg off, leaving the yolk intact. I added eyes to the yolk with an edible marker pen and small triangle beak cut from carrot. I popped it in a yellow silicone cup to hold it in place – Small Child loved it!
I recently found and bought some cute plastic shaped eggs, one of which was chick shaped, so I filled it with raisins and a couple of mini rice cakes and popped it into his lunch bag as a little after school snack.
As I’m getting into the mood for Easter, planning lovely Easter themed food and games for the holidays, I thought it would be fun to have a little Easter giveaway too, so I’ve gathered together some supplies to help one lucky winner make some brilliant Easter themed food.
The prize consists of one set of Easter themed cookie cutters, one Easter themed cupcake decorating set (perfect for bento and snacks as well as cakes!), one egg shaped silicone mould, and one set of lamb and chick cup cake rings (3 lambs, 3 chicks). All items are brand new and unused and will be posted free of charge to the lucky winner.
