Inspirational Sandwiches For Your Picky Eater!!

The Mini Book of Grandwiches Review/Giveaway
Risking that I may have already said this a million times, Pooh Bear is a picky eater! He takes after his mother when it comes to eating. There was a time when his mother was a toddler where she would eat only nuts or ice cream. This stage went on for months.Well, that stage passed just like this stage will pass with Pooh Bear. In the mean time I have a great weapon at my disposal. The Mini Book of Grandwiches by Lisa Leconte. 
 I just love this little book. There are so many great inspirational ideas in this little book. There had to be something in it that Pooh Bear would want to eat. I sat down with Pooh Bear and we looked the book over together.  He picked a few pages and proclaimed "I make with Grandma!" Everyone knows he is a chef in training. 
These were his selections today. 

It was obvious he was not going to eat all of this. I talked him into a little trade off. I told him I would make something from each page if he would eat all his lunch. Then he could pick another sandwich for tomorrow.

His lunch was a complete hit. I also added carrots and grapes which he did not want touching his animals so they were served alone. Ha ha, Pooh Bear said "Elepants and drafs don't eat grapes or carrots GRANDMA!" Grandma should have known that. 
Pooh Bears pick for tomorrow.

What is in this book? There are many pages of sandwich photos along with recipes. Then you will find a long list of sandwich fillings and recipes of some of these fillings. If you are worried about free hand cutting the animals you can rest at ease. There are templates for cutting the designs and animals. I could not ask for more.
What I like about this book. The details are amazing and the photos are easy to use as a guide when creating a great looking sandwich.  I was able to free had cut the animals by looking at the detailed photos.

  8. This is the cutest book and giveaway ever. I bet Pooh Bear is enjoying all of the neat animals. I know my grands would be.
    My all time favorite sammy is a BLT. I don't eat mayo at all, so I put just a small amount of mustard with bacon, lettuce, tomato, sometimes cheese, salt and pepper. Just a lil dab will do me.
    ...don't settle on my thighs I pray...
