Lunch FAIL?

I am sure many of you have seen this fabulous lunch from Meet the Dubiens.

Jill has the best pictures and is so creative! Well, I thought I could try out this lunch for John on St. Patrick's Day. I thought I could use a grilled cheese sandwich, sliced carrots for a curly beard, raisins for eyes, and skittles for a snack. Turns out, my version is much creepier and it looks like this poor leprechaun is melting away.

The picture cracks me up everytime I see it. Thankfully John wasn't too frightened to eat! This was his first time to try skittles and he quickly spit them out and said 'Mommy, I don't like this'. Fine by me...I don't have to share my favorite candy!!

Well, at least I tried to make John's lunch more fun. I will probably have to stick to using cookie cutters for now. :)

I link up to these parties!


  1. Thanks for my morning laugh. I love the idea of getting John to eat perhaps I should have tried that with you. Wonder how many things I could have made with a hot dog?

  2. Ah, thanks for the laugh!

    We all try these beautifully inspirational things we see out here in blog land but sometimes it just doesn't work out the same. :0)

    It's nice when someone shares something that isn't perfect.

  3. I love Jill's blog too! She has the best ideas and photography too!

    Good job for trying to tackle it. The best part is that it made you laugh!


  4. LOL! Love that you went for it! :)
    per Austin: Ya know, we didn't do a lot of kid-friendly activities because we were there to watch my sister swim in at the NCAA Championships so that took a bunch of our time. I have heard, though, that the Children's museum is good (it's only open until 5, though) and there are tons of parks and such. They also have a decent zoo. Hope that helps! Sorry that didn't give you much to go on!

  5. I made my own version of the leprechaun sandwich too! I used the whole baby carrots. I don't think it was a fail. Besides, grilled cheese makes EVERYTHING better! :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! They make my day when I read them!...unless you are being mean, then they don't make my day. :)
