In honor of my sons return to playing baseball, after activities were cancelled for swine flu, today we have a baseball theme lunch. They have a double meat ham sandwich on a hamburger bun with cheese baseball and meat and cheese baseball player, strawberries, grapes, and no game is complete without peanuts. I also used sugar snap peas for filler. And the boys will take the lettuce box liner and eat it in their sandwiches.

Hearts and Kisses!

Hearts and Kisses!, originally uploaded by texasmomof4.

I've been playing more and more with my mini cutters and decided to use the nesting heart cutters today. Which as fate would have it the last preshaped boiled egg in the fridge was a heart so off I went. And of course I had preformed onigiri in the freezer! So this lunch was so fast to make. The celery kinpira and the cabbage were both cooked fresh on opposite ends of a large pan (less cleanup!) Added the fresh fruit and we are good to go!
