The littles are pretty big fans of the Ultimate Spider Man cartoon series (the one where Spidey joins forces with S.H.E.I.L.D. and a whole crew of teen heroes – check it out if you like action cartoons and haven’t caught this one, it’s pretty good). So when my son need a packed lunch for playgroup, it was time to make his favorite characters: Nova and, of course, Spidey himself.
Nova is made out of ham, egg sheet, white American cheese, pepperoni,and nori (just for the mouth). I cut out the egg, cheese, and meat details with scissors and layered them on a piece of bread punched out with an oval cutter.
Side dishes were carrot coins, Trader Joe’s petite cocoa baton cookies, and some Avengers shaped cheese crackers.
