Stars and Stripes Forever Independence Day lunch.

For lunch today, T ate the following:

  • star-shaped sandwiches
  • red, white, and blue star-shaped marshmallows in a red silicone liner
  • starburst-shaped tortilla chips in a red and a blue silicone liner
  • sliced carrots and celery arranged like a flag (with dip on the side)
  • applesauce with red, white, and blue sprinkles
  • milk in a red cup

Did you know...?

"The Stars and Stripes Forever" is a patriotic American march composed by John Philip Sousa.  It is the official National March of the United States of America.*

            The Stars and Stripes Forever  

             Hurrah for the flag of the free.
             May it wave as our standard forever,
             The gem of the land and the sea,
             The banner of the right.
             Let despots remember the day
             When our fathers with mighty endeavor,
             Proclaimed as they marched to the fray,
             That by their might and by their right
             It waves forever.

    Very patriotic tin. Wondering where I can find those star marshmallows, they are cute.
    Would love for you to visit Tots and Me. We also had a patriotic tin this week.
