Red Angry Bird Lunch

Eliana asked for another Angry Birds lunch. Actually she keeps asking for them... on a daily basis... I most definitely created a monster when making this first Angry Birds Lunch last month.  Since that lunch was so time consuming due to all the tiny pieces (and my lack of pre-lunch planning) I decided to make this lunch simpler.  

Eliana's favorite is the red angry bird so I made this simple Red Angry Bird Lunch:
This lunch is loosely based on the Spring version of Angry Birds Seasons, with some cute little veggie flowers at the bottom :)

The slingshot is made of pretzel rods with cheese for the sling.
The red angry bird is a sundried tomato tortilla with ham and cheese sandwich cut into a circle.  
The cheese on top was colored red (tutorial can be found here). 
The belly and eyes are cheese.  
The beak is carrot. 
The eyebrows, eyes and tail feathers are colored with a black food safe marker. 
The flowers on the bottom are cucumbers and carrots cut with a small flower cutter

*Of course this lunch would not work if you or your child are sensitive and/or allergic to food dye, so I would suggest to either use natural food dyes or use another red food such as red bell pepper or red apple for the body.  You could use black olives, raisins, grapes or black beans for the black details.*


Eliana loved this lunch and gobbled it up. She is a huge fan of Angry Birds so if she approved of it I guess it came out all right ;)
