Under The Sea Lunch

Since the lilianator was feeling a bit better today, off to school she went!

Today's lunch was a request which I was honored to do.  Lily's sitter Kelly has been one of my best friends for over 20 years, and growing up, her room was painted floor to ceiling in an underwater theme.
It was incredible!

Today's lunch is dedicated to Kelly, with many thanks for the wonderful years of friendship :)

What's for lunch:
Snow pea kelp
Fishy crackers
Turkey and cheese slice sandwich on whole wheat
Blue fruit roll up (background)
Fruit leather boat bottom
Cheesy pretzel stick and cheese slice oar
Fishy crackers and marble cheese fish with food marker
Spearmint candy laces seaweed
Chocolate chip granola bar ocean floor  

So, this lunch, as adorable as it was when it left the house ended up a huge catastrophe!
A valuable lesson was learned.  Moisture + fruit roll-up = GOO
By lunchtime, the moisture of the turkey had turned her blue background to blue goo
and was stuck to her sandwich beyond all saving :( 

Take heart though, as I think I've found a solution:
Plastic wrap!
I'll let you know how it goes :)

The boat bottom engulfed in goo!
Oh, the carnage! :(
A sad mess :(
