A Lovely Lunch for February

This lunch full of hearts was something I packed for my husband on Valentine's Day 2013. I started this post on that day and never got back to it. Oh well, it is perfect for sharing now at the beginning of this February. He had a heart-shaped turkey sandwich topped with a Love decoration, Goldfish in a pink heart cup, a mini pink cupcake with heart-shaped sprinkles, heart-shaped marshmallows, and heart-shaped candies in the treat section.

 He had heart-shaped strawberries, a hear-shaped piece of apple, and grapes on a pink heart pick.

 He also had a pasta salad filled with hearts. It included rotini noodles, cherry tomatoes, and heart-shaped celery and peppers. Outside the pasta salad were mini heart-shaped cucumber pieces.

 I had included the little red fork because it matched the Valentine's theme, but I later realized it wasn't too realistic or useful when a lot of the pasta salad came back uneaten and he explained that he couldn't eat fast enough with that little fork.

I placed a paper heart on top of the lid of the pasta salad container and included a napkin decorated with hearts. I remember that this lunch was fun to make. It was packed in our Planetbox, which is one of my favorites for adult lunches.
