MTM ~ Independence Day!

Today over at Muffin Tin Monday Michelle's theme of the week was 4th of July!

Two days ago, while looking around on the internet for fun kid food options with a 4th of July theme I came up with very little that was healthy. So I set out to make a menu that wouldn't be completely loaded with junk, but also not devoid of fun. Armed with a few goodies from market yesterday, I set it my mission to make a healthy lunch that was loaded with red, white, and blue.


Top: This cup was filled with raspberry lemonade with frozen blueberries in it (it looked really good, but they got a hold of it), and then large pretzel rods, and a star shaped sandwich.

Bottom: Orgnaic strawberries and blueberries from the market seperated by homemade whipping cream. Cream cheese to dip the pretzels in and sprinkles to decorate them with. They LOVED that:


Red, white, and blue sprinkles = $2
Pretzel rods = $3
Independence to play with your food = Priceless.

Love your bowl of berries separated by the homemade whipping cream! YUMMY! I see that you are from W WA... I'll be heading that way at the end of July and I can't wait! I was born and raised in the Seattle area and while I do love living in TX, there is nothing like Western WA in the summer... so beautiful!
