Fishy Food Fun

This week in preschool we are doing O is for Ocean. I made two themed lunches that were a big hit.
Tuna ‘Fish’ swimming  in the red sea (peppers). If blueberries had been in season I would have used them to make the water. I just used a cookie cutter to cut out the sandwich – simple & FUN!!

  • 1 TAB Parmesan Cheese
  • 3 TAB sweet pickle relish (although we usually just chop up some homemade pickles)
  • 1/8 teas minced onion
  • 1/4 teas curry powder (don’t skip this! It is very subtle, but gives it a yumm… what is that?)
  • 1 TAB parsley
  • 1 teas dried dill weed
  • 1 pinch garlic powder (or 1 clove)
  • 1 large red apple (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
