Lucky Rainbow Lunch

"I'm lucky!" Pickle declared this morning. "Why's that?" I asked. "Because I'm one eighth Irish! Nobody can pinch me!" "Better wear a green shirt anyways," I suggested, "in case they can't tell by looking at you." ;)

I made him a special St. Patrick's Day lunch and wished him good luck :

Last night my cold was keeping me awake so I had time to think about how to make Pickle's usual PB sandwich & yogurt more fun than usual, and of course the obvious answer was to colour his yogurt - and I was all set to do just that, colour it green, but since I couldn't sleep, I decided to take a little more time and colour it rainbow instead. I used a medicine syringe:

Pickle's yogurt rainbow took about 15 minutes to make, since I had to wash out the syringe in between each colour, then mix the next colour, but it wasn't hard. And it was fun!  I have no idea if it will look this pretty by the time he eats it though, so I showed it to him before I put the lid on :)

Besides his rainbow yogurt., Pickle has some shamrock peanut butter sandwiches, a mint Oreo, chocolate leprechaun's gold, and a rainbow gummy candy. Yeah, yeah, it's not the healthiest of lunches, but it's a fun one - I'll feed him better at supper ;) And as always, I found the perfect Lunchbox Love card to go with his lunch!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
