Kids Fall Lunch: Falling Leaves Sandwich

It’s officially FALL!!!!!

I’m so excited, because it’s my fave season!!!
{Even though it’s still 85° where I live, which is totally wrong.}

The leaves have yet to change colors, but I couldn’t help myself  in making a fun fall Nummie!!

The trees always show the first signs of fall.
Oh, how I adore all the pretty leaves changing color.

I wanted to come up with a new creative way to make colored leaves. While brain storming, my 7yo dropped her cute little pumpkin on the living room floor.  It’s not even Oct and my kids are already smashing pumpkins!! Let nothing go to waste…ROAST THE SEEDS!!!  I was elbow deep into the slimy pumpkin digging out the precious little seeds when it hit me:  DYE THE PUMPKIN SEEDS.  So, that’s what I did!  Added a bit of food coloring to them, and voila!!
We have pretty leaves!!!
They are so festive…not to mention yummy!!

Oh happy day when the leaves start falling…
I hope to see leaves changing soon!!!



Once you have dug them out of the pumpkin and rinsed them of any pulp, toss them with a drizzle of olive oil, a dash of balsamic vinegar, and sea salt.  Divvy them up into separate containers.  One for each color you wish to use.  I made red, orange, yellow, and left one handful  natural.  Put them all in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Bake 325° for about 20 min or until desired crispiness.  Let cool.  Store in dry place.

Use a cup to cut out a circle from a slice of bread.
Use same cup to cut out a circle from a slice of cheese.
Put cheese on top of bread and place on plate.
Cut a tree trunk out of another slice of bread. Put in place on plate.
Arrange your colored pumpkin seeds for the leaves on tree, falling, and at the base of the tree.

More fall inspired Nummies are on the way!!!  YAY!!!

In the meantime….
