Top Enders Friday Lunch - Mice

Last weekend Big Boy and I got to spend the day with Dairylea to find out more about their new all natural recipe. We had a great day, and I was inspired to make this weeks Friday lunch for Top Ender! Dairylea Triangle and a boiled egg Mice!

Making the cheese mouse is really simple, take a triangle of cheese take it out of the wrapper, being careful not to squish it out of shape. I then cut two circles of hot dog to make ears, made a couple of slithers of red peppers for eyes, a bit of pepper to make a nose and then made a tail using a curled piece of red pepper skin (mice have pink tails!). I was inspired by the Cute Food For Kids appetizers,

Making the egg mouse is even easier. Take one boiled egg and carefully peel it, slice a thin piece of the egg off so that the egg will sit flat in the lunch box. Cut two circles of hot dog to make ears, use the red pepper slithers to make eyes again, a bit of pepper to make a nose and then a tail using the red pepper skin to make a tail again.

Big Boy and I are going to love eating our lunch today as it will bring back memories of our time with Dairylea at the farm!
