Hello friends! Happy Thanksgiving! Although it is a crazy year, I am still very thankful for everything that I have, especially my family and friends…

This week’s lunchbox idea week is also Canadian’s Thanksgiving weekend. So the food art I made this week is a turkey which is made with multigrain bread and strawberry and green apple etc. The leaves are made of cheese and seaweed. The video tutorial is below.

It is Fall so I decided to make some cranberry jam. I had a bag of cranberries sitting in my freezer for quite some time now and I just thought it was the perfect time to make some jam and use up the cranberries. This is a small batch recipe but if you need more you can just double the ingredients. This jam is great for breakfast or lunch box sandwiches. The jam is packed with vitamin C, K, and fiber… healthy and yummy!  I hope you enjoy it too .

Have a wonderful week friends! See you next Monday .
