Our house is a football FANATIC home! All sports really but Sunday afternoons are sacred. I'm a Colts fan... my boyfriend loves his Lions... and last year Little Miss declared her team would be the Jaguars. She chose them because Diego has a Jaguar and she thought that was pretty cool! :)
Had I planned ahead I could have bought a few more football picks or inspired items but with what I had on hand, I think it turned out pretty cute. She loved it. She even wore her Jaguar socks to school today, lol.
I made her a mini sub sandwich and melted some mozz. cheese on top for 10 seconds in the microwave for the laces of the ball (so they would stay melted into the bread).
Tucked to the left of the sammy are two cucumber slices I also cut into football spheroid shapes.
I then used some bologna stacked cut into football shapes (football... pigskins...bolonga... get it? lol, I know, it's a stretch) then drew the laces with a food color pen.
I created a goal post and star cutouts with cheese.
There a few grapes scattered and everything is laying on a bed of romaine to give it some green like grass. :)
On the right are some tortilla chips and apple slices.
For dessert, shown at the very top, is a rice krispy treat with a message from Mama for her.
Everything fits snuggly into one container.
