Happy Labor Day Everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying a day off from work.  I know we are!


Skylar and I were talking about how we live in an apartment, which means that we don’t have our own backyard.  We talked about the sort of things you might find in your own backyard, and decided this would make a fun MTM theme.  Here’s what we made:



Top Row (left to right): Babybel Ladybug, Butterscotch Pudding Flower, (GF) Butterfly Toast

Bottom Row: Salted Cucumber Grass, String Cheese Stem with Apple Leaf, Apple Sandwich Tire Swing


We have made the ladybug before, but it was fun enough to do again.  I just cut out the shapes, and used a food safe marker for the black dots.



The apple sandwich was new for us.  I sliced an apple horizontally and used a circle cutter to remove the core.  The I added peanut butter and a few chocolate chips.



This whole meal was a huge hit.  Skylar ate almost every bite!
