A Fun and Simple Turtle Lunch!My sister in law loves turtles, so we made this lunch for her and for Larry, who was a turtle she pet-sat for a friend a year ago. Eliana still talks about Larry the turtle as if it were yesterday and as if he was part of the family! Her memory never ceases to amaze me!
This is a really easy and simple lunch to make and your kids will love it!
The Turtle is a ham and cheese sandwich made with a spinach tortilla cut with a turtle cookie cutter. His shell is a Granny Smith Apple, and the eyes are edible candies. I drew the mouth with a food marker. I had actually meant to detail the turtle shell (I was thinking of either using the food marker or carving the apple) so it looked a little plain to me -- but Eliana LOVED it and ate it all up. And ultimately that is all that really matters :)
