Autumn has well and truly arrived now, bringing with it cold mornings, gusts of wind, and rain, lots and lots of rain! To 'celebrate' the turning weather, I made a rainy day themed lunch for Small Child.
In this lunch he had a couple of homemade ham, red pepper and cheddar cheese quesadillas, cut into umbrella shapes using a large circle cutter, and decorated with edible marker pen. I stacked one on top of the other and added a plastic umbrella handle, which I had saved from a lindt umbrella chocolate. On the side he had peas (in their pods), strips of raw red pepper, carrot and cucumber to make a rainbow of veggies. He also had a sliced plum and red grapes topped with a rubber duck pick (in our family we've always called rainy weather 'ducks weather'). I finished the lunch off with a Babybel cheese decorated by cutting a cloud and raindrops from the wax with mini bento cutters.
I also added a frozen organic yoghurt tube to his lunch bag (not shown). There was nothing left of this lunch by the end of the day, so I'm guessing it went down well.
