Today’s lunch was about hearts <3 🙂 When there are a lot of “feelings” around my house (hurt feelings, frustrated feelings, jealousy feelings, etc.) I try to make sure the kiddo knows there are love feelings, too. Last night, she was really jealous of her sister and so we had a talk and lots of hugs but this morning, when I found out I still had a heart-shaped “pizzette” in our freezer pizza stash, I knew it was meant to be. I actually have made quite a few pizzette shapes for her lunches but am still perfecting the way to get them both delicious AND attractive… right now, melting cheese is my nemesis 😛 Until now, I was pre-cooking and freezing the pizzas and then re-heating in a toaster oven, which makes them melt and spread even more. Hmmm… I think next time I’ll pre-cook with just the sauce and add the cheese afterwards when I’m re-heating. In the butterfly below, I kinda did that and added some extra cheese but they didn’t heat up enough to melt properly (mainly because the butterfly already had cheese on it and I didn’t want it burning.
Anyhow, here they are!
