World UFO Day Food

UFO themed food

Happy UFO Day! I made this fun cheese and bread meal for my nephew.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Homemade bread – I shaped the roll and baked on a cookie sheet, after it was cooled I drew on it with a food safe coloring pen. Cheddar cheese stars (used a cookie cutter).

Top Right: Grape alien (I attached the eye with cream cheese, it was not easy to use celery for the antenna, use a toothpick to make holes in the grape and pea to make it a little easier), blackberries

Bottom Right: Cucumber stars (used a cookie cutter)

Miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with melted white chocolate (put the melted chocolate in a plastic zip-lock bag and cut off a small corner, pipe on the clock hands).

Vegetarian Cookout Food

Vegetarian Cookout Food

Here is a vegetarian grilled meal that does not include veggie burgers. My parents and I ate this meal when they came to visit. My parents are not vegetarians but they enjoyed this. My Dad did the grilling.


  • Composed Salad (see below)
  • Grilled Cheesy Potato Packets – We enjoyed this but we did have some trouble with oil leaking out of the packets when they were flipped. Make sure that your packets are well sealed.
  • Grilled Garlic Bread – I did not use parsley.

Composed Salad

Beautiful composed salad – cucumber, tomatoes, romaine, feta cheese, and black olives. Serve with a vinaigrette of your choice.

Grilled Cheesy Potato Packets

Grilled cheesy potato packets after they were cooked. Delicious! This was a satisfying meal and I am looking forward to making it again.

4th of July Food

4th of July Food Collage

This year for 4th of July I have themed food in the shape of an eagle, the United States, fireworks, and the American Flag. All of these feature rice and most have rice and salsa which is a new favorite combination in my house.

For other ideas see my post from last year of 14 USA Patriotic meals.
