Lunch Made Easy: Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake Day!

I've been posting our lunches in a fun round-up on Friday's, which I will still be doing this week, but since today is a special one it deserved it's own fun post!

Happy Shrove Tuesday / Pancake Day
Fat Tuesday / Mardi Gras
Say that ten times fast. ;) 

Little Miss has a Mardi Gras mask gluten free pancake with sprinkles. I colored around the eye holes with a green food safe marker. I made the 'feathers' from strips of a large carrot. 

She also has a 'confetti' spinach side salad and a cup of pear dices & blueberries with a fun Mardi Gras themed pick.

An example how just a little fun food placement can turn an ordinary lunch into a fun festive theme!  

Allergy Friendly Notes:
  • Use King Arthur Gluten Free Pancake Mix to keep this lunch allergy free. Their mixes are made in a Top 8 free facility.
  • Swap the cheese on the salad for non-dairy rice or soy cheese for dairy free
