A Puzzling Lunch

It's reaching the time of year when parents everywhere wonder: why do I have to make lunch again? I just did this yesterday. Add in the ungrateful childish complaints from the peanut gallery and you have an unhappy culinary situation indeed.

These gadgets might bring a temporary stay to the whining. Each of these extra wide sandwich cutters divides the ordinary lunch into extraordinary shapes. Lunch becomes a puzzle, thus rendering it more palatable for picky eaters. It creatively partitions everything from pb&j to grilled cheese, although I wouldn't recommend attempting it on a ciabatta. Then again, if your child is interested in ciabatta themed sandwiches, you probably don't need to transform the brown bag into a game, anyway.

And don't limit it to lunch! I foresee fascinating french toast in your future. Find these cutters at It's the reinvention of the sandwich, if the Earl of Sandwich had been a Mensa member.
