Loving Guests - Eclectic Lamb

Hi, I am Kathy from Eclectic Lamb. I am so happy to guest post today for Jackie! My husband and I have 9 nephews and 3 nieces ranging in age from almost 2 years to 16 years old. We live in a rural area of New York State, United States. The main focus of my blog is cute vegetarian lunches that I make for my nieces, nephews, and my husband. (Sometimes I share lunches I made for myself.) I also enjoy crafts and party planning.

 For this post, I knew that I wanted to make a parent/child lunch or in our case, uncle/nephew. I did a lot of brainstorming and asked my nephews for ideas. My 16 year old nephew came up with the idea of using the idiom - "A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned". I was excited to work with this theme. It ended up being much more simple to create than I had imagined. My 9 year old nephew and husband ate these lunches and enjoyed them. It is always a treat to have homemade bread in their lunch. Both lunches feature mostly the same food (very easy!).
  • Homemade soft rolls
  • Carrots
  • Watermelon
  • Peanut butter sandwich on roll
Before I baked the pig penny bank bread, I added aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray to the top of the bread for the penny slot. After baking, I removed the aluminum foil and there was a perfect slot to add the penny (carrot coin). The eye and snout details are pieces of raisin.
