Transportation themed lunches are fun for anyone to eat and easy to make using cookie cutters. Hot air balloon waffle, car shaped rice, mashed potato train, apple canoes and airplane pizza are sure to put a smile on your loved one’s face.
I made this lunch for my waffle loving nephew. I enjoy finding new cookie cutter shapes to use with waffles.
