When I was little my mom used to make me Micky Mouse or smiley face pancakes. Breakfast was an ode to her. Generally, I just use a spoon and do the smiley face or Micky Mouse. However, today was special, so I broke out the pastry bag and got fancy. I basically drew the outline first and then filled in the picture. I took requests and ended up with Micky Mouse, a frog, a starfish, a smiley face, an M&M and a rocket ship.
For snack it was a peanut butter and banana caterpillar. This I stole from my friend, Jackie.
For lunch it was an owl sandwich inspired by www.cutestfood.com. Our dinner was also taken from this site.
Afternoon snack was strawberry mice with walnut ears, a frosting tail, mini chocolate chip nose and candy eyes (from Wilton – I got them for Christmas).
Dinner was spaghetti & meatballs.
Finally, dessert was inspired by my mom again. She used to make Jello Jigglers (“finger jello”) for me when I was a kid. The recipe is on the side of the Jello box.
