A Whale of a Lunch


Another Art In The Kitchen (https://www.awhiskandtwowands.com/tag/kids-food-art/) creation. When my youngest came to me with a request to make a whale sandwich for lunch. I will take every opportunity I get to make fun, goofy, art in the kitchen anytime for as long as they will let me. We also added some fun waves with Cuties clementines!

At first we made a whale with just two slices of bread and used what was left after cutting out the body, which you can do, but it wasn’t what she was thinking and we had the end slice of bread left so we made a half a sandwich and cut the tail out of that. Slicing the crust off where the body where the tail is attached.

Here is what we used to create our whale. You can make it using any sandwich you wish and customize it with what you have in your house to embellish it.


A Whale of a Lunch

Makes 1

3 slices of bread (used Food For Life Ezekiel Sprouted 4:9 Bread)

1-2 TBSP peanut butter or nut butter of choice (used Peanut Butter & Co Smooth Operator)

2 TBSP jam or preserves of choice (used Crofter’s Organic Premium Raspberry Spread)

Eyes- we used a raisin

Mouth- a little of the raspberry spread

Blow spouts- Pea Shoot Sprouts

Waves- 2 Cuties clementines, minus a couple of segments that were munched on while making it


Start by making your sandwich using 2 slices of bread, peanut butter, and jam (saving a little for the mouth if you are making the mouth out of jam). Cut sandwich, using a sharp knife, into the shape of the body of the whale. Place sandwich on a plate.  Cut the tail our of the remaining piece or make a half of a sandwich and cut out a tail. Add eye, spread on mouth, and add sprouts. Peel and arrange Cuties segments on the plate. Enjoy!
