  • Lunch Foodie: Boiled egg the fun way!

    Don’t forget:: Enter the Handmade Goodness Giveaway!

    I love it when creativity strikes.  It doesn’t hit me very often, but when it does, I try and run with it before I forget.  HAH.  The other day I was just bumbling in the kitchen trying to plan out what types of lunches I would be making for Cy.  The piteeza pockets were a success and I have made them a few times with different fillings.

    My son loves boiled eggs, a favorite snack of mine, too.  But how do I give him a boiled egg that doesn’t look disgusting, all stuffed into a little plastic baggy?  His lunch was already made fun of.  It was a fried fish sandwich and the kid said that Cy was “eating poop”.  Cy wasn’t too concerned because he knew his lunch definitely didn’t taste like poop, it tasted like yummy fish.  A fish that his papa caught the day before.  Both Cy and I decided that, in spite of that kid’s poor manners, a fish sandwich is a fish sandwich and it’s good!

    Enter my *brilliant* idea.  A Humpty Dumpty egg!  I boiled an egg

    took some carrot and a piece of sausage

    and made the cutest little lunch companion for my son.

    He’s still in the refining stages, I was tempted to give him sausage “hair” by cutting thin strips of sausage and placing them into his cute, soft noggin but I gave him a hat instead.  I used a straw to make his eyes and also to burrow through his side to make way for the carrot stick arms.  With a knife I carved his gaping mouth, all the way through to the yolk to give it a little color.
    Just sprinkle him with salt and there you have it!

    Isn’t Humpty cute?
