Little Miss loves listening to Holiday Music this time of year. One of her favorite songs happens to be "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas". Y'all can thank me later for getting the song stuck in your head today! lol
I will tell you, I knew Little Miss would love the humor in this school lunch, but I had no idea when we were making it last night I would also get a big squeeze of a hug and told "your da' best Mama!" *sniffle* All worth it, and then some.
I made Little Miss' hippopotamus from our King Arthur Flour Gluten Free pancake mix (KAF Gluten Free mixes are made in a Top 8 Allergy Free Facility), adding a little red coloring for his santa hat. The "white puff" (as Little Miss calls it) is made from whipped cream cheese.
She also has some pears with a kiwi Christmas tree on top and cute little musical note picks scattered around it.
Top right I had to give her a little side salad for her veggies, since you know, the hippo is a vegetarian! ;)
It was there I also snuck in a musical note made from cheese and our advent countdown number of "21".
Beside her reindeer fork, is a Lunchbox Love Note from their Christmas Collection.
