Now Starring: Lightning McQueen & Francesco Bernoulli!

John loves Cars and Cars 2. Lightning McQueen & friends are all over our house. Tons of cars of various sizes. Clothes. Movies. Books. Even John's bed is shaped like Lightning McQueen. This is probably the first of many Cars related lunches.

The inspiration: Lightning & Francesco

Started by making Lightning out of his turkey sandwich

A much more detailed Francesco out of cheese (cheese is SO much easier to paint than bread!)


I had just hard boiled some eggs and got the bright idea to try and mold one using one of John's little Lightning snack containers (which worked pretty well!)

Add in some Cars Fruit Snacks & Strawberry Gel with Peaches (chosen because it looked most like Lightning's colors) and we've got lunch!

  1. I love the painted on bread and cheese! I have some food markers but they don't seem to work very well. Maybe I should try it your way :)

  2. I've never even heard of food markers! Toothpicks and a spare paintbrush from one of John's watercolor kits seem to work well here :)
