Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Year 2, Week 17: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Lunch.  I was sort of stuck with what to make this week.  There are so many great things for Christmas but sometimes its hard to slow down and pick something.  My family and I saw the Disney movie FROZEN this weekend and loved it.  That lunch will come up soon but I finally decided on an old Christmas classic--Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.  Forget the cartoon version, the claymation version is the one to see.  It is older but definitely still the best.  In fact, I tried to to do an elf to go into this lunch (like the movie) but it was a disaster and I left it out.  

Yes, I do have food disasters all the time.  The thing I've learned is not to let it stop you and to keep going at it.  Usually something good comes of it.  The lunch this week is very simple, but still can be very fun.  I made it in an Easy Lunch Boxes container and also included a Christmas note from Lunchbox Love.  

Rudolph sandwich
Ingredients:
--Whole wheat and sourdough (or white) bread
--Peanut Butter and Jam
--1 green apple
--Handful of grape tomatoes
--1 slice provolone cheese
--1 small piece of nori
--2 pretzels
--1 serving Pirates Booty
--Handful dried cranberries
--1 serving strawberry applesauce
--1 kiwi


Kiwi Christmas Tree
Directions:
1.  Cut on piece of whole wheat bread in the shape of a reindeer head.  Use that piece to trace and cut out the second piece.  Spread peanut butter and jelly on one piece to make a sandwich.
2.  Cut a small you out of a slice of white bread.  Place on face.  Cut facial features out of nori and provolone cheese as shown. Put two small pretzel pieces in between the slices of bread to form horns.
3.  Put facial features on reindeer head.  Finish by placing a grape tomato on for nose.  Place this in your main container.  Surround with other grape tomatoes and sliced green apple.
4.  Place Pirates Booty and dried cranberries in one side dish.
5.  Slice kiwi in half and then cut the skin off.  Cut one tree out of each half of kiwi as shown.  Float trees on top of strawberry applesauce in another side dish.
5.  Finish off by placing a Christmas themed Lunchbox Love note in if desired.

Have a great week and I hope you get everything ready for Christmas.  Don't get sucked into the busyness and make sure to make time for your family!  Follow me on Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter for more Christmas ideas and to keep up on all the news!

  2. Oh my word, that is adorable! I will have to keep my children away from this, as I'll be immediately labeled worst mom ever if they see it. I don't have the patience. Oh, and I make them make their own lunches ;)

    1. Thanks Michelle! Maybe you can steal my ideas together for a lunch here and there? Or better yet, you steal my ideas, tell them how they can make the food, and let them think its yours. That is why I try and post instructions and pics. I want you parents to be the heroes! Have a great day.
