Under the sea
There is a peanut butter sandwich under the crab. There are 2 crab cheese, a sausage octopus, sausage and whole wheat pasta crab and jellyfish. Blood oranges, cheese cutouts, and ABC pretzels.
I really am not a huge fan of this type of sausage. Or hot dogs for that matter. The minions love them though! To make them, all you do is break off spaghetti to shorter lengths, push it into your sausage and then cook it. Just follow the directions on the box for cooking the spaghetti and it will turn out perfect. The minions played with their sea creatures for a bit before devouring them. Don't let the picture fool you! There is also half a peanut butter sandwich in there as well as 2 crab cheese aka crab ragoon. I served these with some extra ABC pretzels. We made a game of figuring out the letters before the boys ate them.
And today I spelled out their name or nickname with pretzels. Yes... I have a minions that we call Pork. We are slowly weaning him off it. He's not fat and is quite the opposite. Just like his other 2 brothers, he is below the 5th percentile. Yes, my 2 1/2 year old wears 12 to 18 month size clothes. Sadly they all inherited my genes and are short. Pork got his nick name from the fact that he eats non stop. Not only does he finish his own plate and any 2nds or 3rds you put on it, he will also eat what his brothers leave on their plates. We actually take him away from the table. I swear he has a black hole in his stomach.
