This lunch is brought to you by the number 8.
As in 8 legs. More specifically: the fact that a spider has 8 legs. Not 6.
I had been struggling with ideas of what to make for a lunch...and then finally it came to me. I'll make a spider lunch!! Only to realize hours later (after it had been eaten) that my "spider" only had 6 legs. And to be honest it wasn't me that even realized that.. My husband pointed it out. I mean the thought had never crossed my mind to count legs! I just stuck some pretzel sticks in her sandwich and called it a spider! Spider. Bug. Who is counting legs anyways?! (well my husband and my daughter for sure..but other than them who is counting legs!!).... soooo this is a BUG lunch or The spider who lost two legs.?! Either way I apparently now need to make a proper spider lunch sometime in the near future :)
To make this simple spider/bug lunch I made a chocolate soynut butter sandwich. I cut the oval using my circle cookie cutter. I put some extra chocolate soynut butter on top and used pretzel sticks as legs. (Be sure to use 8 if you want it to be a spider! lol) I added some candy eyes and a carrot mouth. I added some flowers on the side made of carrots and celery. And I added some cute raisin bugs too!
