Ellorie's Hand Sandwich

"Mom", says Ellorie, "Can we have hand sandwiches for lunch today? Please??"
"What is a hand sandwich?", I ask
"I saw it on tv. You make a sandwich and then cut it into a hand with a cookie cutter.", she explains
"Oh, sure, why not."

Ellorie saw this on PBS this morning and wanted to try it. Cute idea I thought. I have quite a collection of cookie cutters, so she picked out her favorites. She ate the shapes, and I ate the "edges". If you can't tell, they are a strawberry, a bunny, and a hand. I didn't think the chocolate chips went too well with a melted cheese and turkey sandwich, but she thought it was the best thing ever.
And thanks, Mom, for the new "hand" cookie cutter-- It came in "handy" Hahahah (Okay, I know.)

Very cute idea. I may have to try that - maybe then Ethan would eat!

You know what? I have never tried this. I should, I know of people who do, but maybe I could get my kids to eat their sandwiches better :)

BTW- Your post on the wheat cereal looks good! I want to try that! I'm up for healthy :)

What a fantastic idea! I am definately going to try that tomorrow. Jenna never eats the crusts anyway - so it will be lunch for two.
