Lunch with a Smile

So, I'm told by my kiddo that if your sandwich, or lunch in general, is smiling at you, it just happens to taste better. Who am I to argue with that? For this lunch, I decided to try a new spin on the traditional peanut butter and jelly by serving it on a mini bun rather than sandwich bread. Verdict? Well, since it was smiling, it was delicious!

Carrots, cucumber, strawberry, PBJ on a bun, cheddar/mozzarella cheese, and mixed nuts with butterscotch chips.

I decided to test this whole smiling face theory on the hubby today, too. I do, after all, hold a degree in Biology, so the scientific method is an old friend. So what if it was my 4-year-old that constructed the hypothesis? I think she might be on to something here. The hubby said his lunch was great, and I'm thinking it was that smiling face that made all the difference!
