World Animal Day Hop

The BBFs are at it again.  We are celebrating World Animal Day with a hop of fun animal lunches.  We chose to do a cat lunch because Molly LOVES cats but is allergic to them.  This is our way of letting her have fun with one of her favorite animals.  (Bean likes cats too...especially Hello Kitty!)
Our main entree is a CuteZCute cat sandwich.  We used Peanut Butter and Company's Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter and some thinly sliced apples for our filling.  YUM!

Our vegetable side is a cucumber "yarn ball".  We used a spiral vegetable slicer (link below) to cut our cucumber into a pasta shape and then curled it all together to make the yarn, because cats like to play with yarn.  

Our fruit side is red grapes, kiwi berries and some apple pieces.  We attempted to make a cat face with the kiwi berries and apple pieces.  There are also a couple of grapes on a cat pick in the main compartment.

Finally, our diary/dessert is vanilla yogurt with a couple of Hello Kitty sprinkles.

I know that Marie always has something fun.  Can't wait to see what she's cooked up over at Healthy Eating Starts at Home.  Hop on over to continue your animal experience!

    1. I highly recommend the spiral cutter. You can make fun spirals out of cucumbers, beets, carrots and even apples, plus we make zucchini pasta with it. YUM! Also, you can make spiral fries out of sweet/white potatoes and then just bake them with a little bit of salt. YUM!
