I saw a similar one online somewhere and of course had to change it up for our restrictions.

Green pepper for the hat; one of those "smashed fruit" all natural fruit leathers for the strap, cut turkey pepperoni for the hat buckle.

Gluten free bread cut into a circle, raisins for eyes, sunflower seed nose, and some chopped carrots for the hair and beard. Super cute, not as difficult at it looks, and the kids loved it!

I also made some gelatin "jigglers" from pineapple juice and knox gelatin for gold pieces, but they came out super tart and were not a hit.

More good luck for us!

Broccoli with a once through in my Ninja, mixed with garlic salt, coconut oil and rice. I used one of my heart cookie cutters again to make the shape and formed the stem with my (always gloved!) hands. This four leave clover is resting on a bed of delicious pastrami, yum!

Four Leaf Clover

Leftover garlic mashed potatoes, with a pastrami four leaf clover. I used a medium sized Heart Cookie Cutter  for the leaves and just cut out the stem with a kitchen scissors.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

I love Dr. Seuss, I love his rhythmic books and the oh so imaginative pictures and colors; I also love coming across his brilliant quotes and hearing about his story.

For this one, I once again, googled up some images and tried to figure out which would be easier to cut out! I believe the Lorax just came out so the image was everywhere, and it did seem fairly easy. I cut out the paper and used it as a pattern to cut out the cheeses, nori for hair, flax seed eyes.  The apple was more tricky than I anticipated with the stripes and trying to make it even but I think one can still tell it's a Cat in the Hat hat? Radish and asparagus trees!

A few months ago we were at a clothing swap and my oldest found these shoes in her size, a perfect day to wear these awesome Dr. Seuss shoes! 

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

This was just going to be a bowl of rice, but I kept finding bits here and there from the fridge so it became a little flower. The sun will come out soon, right?
