Admittedly I could have been more creative for this holiday lunch but as so often happens around here I was a bit pressed for time and hungry children = cranky lunch, so here is the best I could do under the circumstances. To help celebrate the fourth we used red, white and blue latex cupcake holders, salami cut into stars, star (and space ship) gold fish and strips made of string cheese and red peppers. The big hit was the star shaped salami. The boys loved it! It really is the little things in life that bring about the sparkle. We also decided that making little sandwiches out of the pita, hummus and red peppers was really yummy.
For dessert I filled cake cones with whip cream and strawberries. To my great surprise Little Brother hated the whip cream on his strawberries and demanded washed off strawberries instead. Big Brother in turn decided to just eat the whip cream. He is sticking firmly to the notion that he only likes strawberries that we have hand picked. I will consider the actual lunch a success that they didn't go crazy over the dessert.
If I get good at this muffin tin thing I will cut my cucs and bread in star shapes too.
