3 Valentine Animal Lunches

Mashed Potato Valentine Giraffe Lunch

This year to celebrate February and Valentine’s Day, I have 3 Heart and Animal themed lunches. They feature mashed potatoes, rice, and quesadillas. This first lunch is a cheddar mashed potato giraffe with heart shaped markings. I made it for my companion Dennis.
