Lunch On A Stick

Few things are more fun than food on a stick (think: corn dogs, Popsicles, dango, burnt marshmallows), so we took a few lunchtime favorites like fruit salad, ham and cheese, and Hawaiian pizza, and puta pin in them. Well, actually a very cute wooden skewer (accompanied by a quick and concise “do not eat this” reminder), but you get the idea. When packing for small children, substitute (unlicked) lollipop sticks for picks, or use garden shears to snip off the sharp point of a pick.

Cobbled Together

  1. Cobb salad skewers (sliced chicken or turkey, cut into 11/2-inch strips and rolled +cherry tomato half + hard-boiled egg quarter + sliced ham, cut into 11/2-inchstrips and rolled)
  2. Cilantro Avocado Dip (page 58) + carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, celery sticks, and bell pepper sticks
  3. Everything-spice pretzel crisps
