The Letter "I"

Well, finding food that starts with the letter "I" has proven to be difficult.  There just is not that many "I" foods that one can pack into a lunch.  I came up with iceberg lettuce, Italian bread, iced cookies, and ice tea.  I is for ice cream so I made an "ice cream sandwich" literally!

Left Box:  Black olives on an ice cream cone/kitty pick (see below pics of close ups of the picks), a honeydew "I", red grapes, and watermelon ice cream cones.

Middle:  Yellow bell pepper, cucumber "for" (the let over cucumber from the cut outs was dice up and thrown in), and ice cream carrots.

Right Box:  Iced animal cookies, yellow cherry tomatoes, Ice cream sandwich made with iceberg lettuce and ham on Italian bread.  Iceberg lettuce accent outside to represent a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
