1st Lunch of Christmas

We're going to try to keep the Christmas theme running all week and hopefully there will be enough ideas to get us through Friday.  There is more red and green in our refrigerator than ever and we can't wait to see how fun things will get.
Our main entree is a salami and provolone sandwich with mustard.  (surprise, we know.  Molly keeps requesting this.)  We fancied it up with a snowman cookie cutter and a Christmas tree cookie cutter.  Then we used our food safe markers to decorate them.

Our vegetable side is sliced cucumbers.  We peeled these for something different and added a decorative Christmas tree pick.

Our fruit side is an apple.  Actually, it's half of two apples.  We sliced a red delicious apple and a green granny smith apple in half and cut the same amount of slices out of them.  Then, we replaced the same slices on each of them with the slices from the opposite apple.

Our dairy side is a colby-jack cheese stick.  We figured that the sandwiches were a little on the small side so Molly might want a little extra in her lunch.

Finally, our dessert is a melted snowman!  Really, it's just our regular old vanilla yogurt but we put a snowman hat on top of it to make it more festive.
