This lunch is a mix of Molly's favorites. I took inspiration from my grandmother, Nana. She was the one that got me interested in cookie cutters and because of her, I have quite a collection. Nana has always been very particular about the way that she presents her food. She had 8 kids and always made sure that they had beautiful meals every day. Her traditions are something that I strive to emulate.
Our main entrée is a Castle Wood Thinly Sliced Honey Ham and Castle Wood Pepper Jack Cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread with a little mustard. We cut this sandwich with a large heart cookie cutter and several micro cookie cutters, just for fun. Molly raved about this ham and requested a ham sandwich. We all agree, the ham is pretty darn yummy and has only 60 calories for 2 oz.
The vegetable side is a pretty unconventional "vegetable" but they are both favorites of Molly's. We have mini dill pickles and black olives. Every time we go to my grandmother's house for lunch she serves pickles and olives on a relish tray to go with sandwiches. So, we are taking Nana's lead and and serving them as a compliment to Molly's sandwich.
We have Trader Joe's no sugar added applesauce for our fruit. We topped it with a little dash of cinnamon, just like Nana does. We find that it enhances the flavor of the applesauce, especially since there is no sugar added.
Finally we have a special dessert. We made a Cinnamon Muffin Melt by Tastefully Simple. This is like a cross between a cupcake, a doughnut and a muffin. We HIGHLY recommend these because not only are they absolutely scrumptious, they are incredibly easy to make.
