On Friday we celebrate 'Red Nose Day', a fantastic fundraising event that the whole country takes part in. I decided to get warmed up with an early 'Red Nose Day' lunch for Small Child, in an attempt to do my little bit to raise awareness for this excellent charity.
In this lunch Small Child had a pitta bread, toasted, cut in half and stuffed with tuna and sweetcorn. They were each topped with some raw carrot 'hair', and decorated with little faces (complete with red noses!) drawn on with edible food markers. On the side he had some more carrot, sliced with a crinkle cutter, a babybel cheese, and some red grapes topped with a red polka-dot pick.
For dessert he had some frozen organic strawberry yoghurt 'red noses', which came out rather pink (I added a little red food colouring but didn't want to add too much), some strawberry granola to sprinkle on top, and some fruit hearts topped with another red polka-dot pick.
I will be 'doing my bit' for Red Nose Day by making cakes/biscuits to be sold at school, as well as giving Small Child a donation to make in return for the privilege of wearing something red to school that day (dare I point out that his school uniform is red?!).
I hope that Small Child enjoyed his Red Nose lunch!
