During the busy week, my lunch is usually reduced to a box of crackers that I munch on while I work at my desk. Quick and easy. But once in a while it's nice to treat yourself to something more satisfying and appealing. One day, I made a flower arrangement out of a sandwich for fun. This would be a neat way to present sandwiches on a platter for a party as well I would imagine. To round out the meal, I added a pudding "dirt" cup topped with a strawberry rose and a vegetable plate with sliced cucumbers arranged into "petals." See details and photos below.

They say that you eat with your eyes, so why not make something beautiful for lunch?
