Surprise Lunches

One of my fondest childhood memories is when my mom would make 'Surprise Lunches' for us. She would set up our Strawberry Shortcake TV trays (either in the living room or on our big front porch), and then we would wait in anticipation while she would create her magic. She would take every-day things, like celery and peanut butter and use M&M's to make faces, cut our sandwiches with cookie cutters, etc. Every time she came up with something new that we hadn't seen before. We were really quite poor monetarily, but we never knew it because my mom's creative mind was so much rich. Surprise Lunches stick out as my favorite childhood food and one of my favorite memories as well.

That is so cool. Your mom is great. Maybe I can do this for my kids one of these days? Do you do this for the boys?
