Minnie Mouse kids lunch
Week 24: Classic Mickey and Minnie Mouse.  We are in Disneyland this week so I made my daughter a little pre-trip special lunch last week.  I have always liked the "classic" versions of Mickey and Minnie so I decided to make this--plus my daughter loves hard boiled eggs, so it was a win-win!  I also wanted to make it festive like a parade with confetti and bright colors and everything, so I went with that look as well.  It's a little busier than I normally like, but I think it works.

Have a great week and be sure and let me know your ideas for creating a Mickey or Minnie Mouse lunch.  Check us out on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter and make sure to tell your friends!


2 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
4 large black olives
1 small red apple
4-6 baby carrots
1 handful of fresh or dried fruit
1 slice cheddar cheese
2 romaine lettuce leaves

   Black and red food coloring or food coloring marker

  1. Cut 1/4 inch off the top of 2 hard-boiled eggs.  Place them bottom side up and draw the facial features of Mickey and Minnie as shown in the picture.  Use either food color markers or make black food coloring (equal parts red, yellow and blue food coloring), and use a toothpick to draw facial features.  Repeat with red food coloring for the tongues.  Cut a bow out of cheddar cheese and decorate it using black food coloring.
  2. Place romaine lettuce leaves in the bottom of your container.  Put Mickey and Minnie in the middle as shown.  Place 2 black olives above each mouse for their ears.  Use toothpicks to hold them in place if desired.  Set cheddar cheese bow on top of Minnie's ears.
  3. Arrange baby carrots beneath the eggs and apple slices above them.  Scatter fresh or dried fruit around the container to give it a festive atmosphere.  Feel free to use whatever you have available that fits.  Be sure and choose foods that your child will enjoy!

  6. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd
    like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how
    you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Cheers!
