I made this lunch for a good friend to take to work for her birthday. I gave her a few choices of themes based on her interests. She said dinosaur or birthday. When I asked my Mom for ideas to make it more special, she suggested balloons. So this is a combined dinosaur and birthday themed lunch. I put the side dishes in silicone cups so she can remove them before heating in her microwave at work.
