Good morning, and welcome back to the first Fun Food Friday of this school year! I hope you all had a fantastic summer! As always, Fun Food Friday is for any food posts at all, whether it be toddler meals, creative cakes, or a yummy recipe you’ve blogged, do link up to today’s linky below and help share the inspiration around! I try to comment on and tweet every post that’s linked up, and I pin them all to my special Fun Food Friday Pinterest board too.
Today's fun food from me is a light lunch that I made during the holidays for my boys. I wanted to try shaped quesadillas after seeing them a while back on the Gingerbread Mum's blog, and I think they turned out really well. Small Child really loves cats so the kitties were a big hit!
For Small Child's lunch, I made 2 kitty quesadillas, cutting the faces out using the CuteZcute Animal Friends Kit and the bodies with the new CuteZCute Cuddle Palz Kit. I cut the faces from a tortilla wrap (the back pieces were left plain) then assembled them straight into a dry frying pan as follows: back piece, grated cheddar cheese, German sausage slices and front piece. I cooked them gently until the cheese was melted, carefully turning them over half way through. I popped them on a plate and added some scenery, in the form of raisins, cucumber sticks and flowers cut from carrot using a mini bento cutter, plus some butterflies cut from German sausage slices. I gave one kitty a carrot flower and the other a cherry tomato balloon, for which I used this special pick set.
I also made a similar (and simpler) version for Small Baby, with just one quesadilla and no food picks.
Both boys enjoyed their special lunches, Small Baby squeaked with delight when he saw his plate, with a 'Deddy, Deddy' thrown in too (his way of saying teddy!). He even tried some of the carrot, which he normally rejects.
