 How to Make a Shamrock Quesadilla and Rainbow Sushi St. Patrick's Day Lunch Recipe

If you're mixing cuisines in your kid's lunch, why not do it on St. Patrick's Day? I decided to make a Shamrock quesadilla using heart cookie cutters but I also wanted to try to make sushi. So it made perfect sense to make Mexican food and Japanese food for a lunch on an Irish holiday, right?! Here is how I made these food art recipes for my kids.

Side note, I'm terrible at rolling sushi. I'm sure many of you out there can do a much better job than I did here. I tried to make a rainbow-themed roll which was tasty but I guess I need more practice. Maybe I should watch more YouTube videos on the topic as well. I also used to be really bad at cutting out hearts but then I just bought heart cookie cutters to make my life easier!

 Lucky the Leprechaun St. Patrick's Day Food Art Lunch Recipe

There's something about St. Patrick's Day that is just magical for me and my family. I love the shamrocks, the pots of gold, the leprechauns, and the food! Call me crazy but I love corned beef and cabbage too. In fact, that is a St. Patrick's Day non-negotiable dinner tradition for my family. But I also always have fun making food art lunches that celebrate this time of year.

 How to Make a LEGO Brick and Minifigure Food Art Lunch!

If your kids are addicted to LEGO like mine are, then you will want to make them this easy and fun LEGO lunch featuring bricks and minifigures! I seriously find LEGOs all around the house at pretty much all times. Yes, I've even damaged my foot for life by stepping on one brick before. Ok, maybe that is a bit dramatic but if you know you know.

Every year I try and make a LEGO lunch for my kids that has a twist on it. I've done frozen yogurt bricks, a few LEGO Movie lunches with Wyldstyle and Emmett, and a few others. This year I went with more of a generic minifig theme but tried something new with the dessert twist. Keep reading to find out how I made it!
