St. Patrick's Day

T had leftover pizza for lunch today, so this was his supper.

  • leprechaun sandwich
  • low-fat peach yogurt with green sugar sprinkles
  • baby carrots with Hidden Valley Creamy Parmesan Dressing
  • Little Debbie Shamrock Shortbread Cookie
  • milk in a leprechaun cup with a green-striped paper straw

Here is a close-up view of the sandwich.

I cut bread into a face shape and a hat shape.  I decorated the hat with Air Heads Xtremes Rainbow Berry Sour Candy and a Starburst Fruit Chew.  (I unwrapped the fruit chew and microwaved it for approximately 20 seconds.  Then, I rolled it flat and cut it into a square shape.)

I used candy decorations for the facial features.  The leprechaun's beard is Oven Baked Cheetos.

With a mouthful of cookie, T looked at his sandwich and showed "beard"...and then he pointed to his papa, who has a (reddish) beard.  

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
