In keeping with our Thanksgiving theme this week, I made a turkey sandwich for the kids to enjoy. They both thought this was adorable, but unfortunately, neither of them ate the peppers. They did both try them though, and that's all I can ask for. Nothing drives me crazy more than them refusing to eat something and saying they don't like it when they haven't even tried it. This little turkey was super cute though and I had a lot of fun making it. I can't wait for my real turkey dinner this weekend though. Here's how I made this sandwich:
turkey - cut 2 pieces of bread into large circles and cut another piece of bread into a smaller circle. Place the smaller circle on top of your 2 larger circles to make a head. Make your sandwich with whatever filling you want - meat, cheese, peanut butter, whatever. The turkey feathers are orange, red and yellow peppers. I also used the peppers to make the feet, beak, and red gobble thingy. I used candy eyes that I found at the dollar store for the eyes. I love these candy eyes, they're so cute. For decoration I put twisted fruit leather around the plate. I love these little fruit snacks. They're portable, nutritious, 100% fruit, and my kids ADORE them. Here's a link to them if you haven't seen them in your grocery store. I'm pretty sure these are only sold in Canada though. They're so much better than those sugar filled, artificial fruit flavoured, chewy "fruit" snacks - you know what I'm talking about.
