Willow's Lunch


Willow's lunch today was a prawn (baby shrimp) cocktail sandwich with a flamingo on top (geddit?). The flamingo was cut from a slice of bologna with cheese and nori accents. I used the tiny leaf from Wilton's Leaf Cut-Outs set for the wing. She also had some cantaloupe/cucumber and yogurt with chopped banana topped with some pink and green sprinkles. She ate it all but hardly touched her fruit/cucumber.
