High Notes Sandwich

Audrey has an electronic keyboard that was a hand-me-down from her uncle Jacob. She loves to play with it and any piano she sees. For her, I found a recipe to make lunch look like piano keys. It is adapted from a great book called Bean Appetit.

 High Note Nibbles
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 1 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsps lemon juice
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 slices dark rye bread
Combine yogurt, apple, brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add chicken and mix well. Make 2 sandwiches on whole wheat and one on rye. Cut the crusts off all the sandwiches, then cut the whole wheat sandwiches into 1  by 2 1/2 inch slices. Cut the rye sandwich into 1/3 by 1 1/4 inch slices. Arrange the white keys side by side on a platter and the black keys on top and in between the white keys.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Measure and add all ingredients to bowl
  2. Mix
  3. Help spread mix on bread
  4. "Help" cut the sandwiches (I let her put her hand on the knife and mine on top)
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Cook chicken and shred
  2. Gather ingredients
  3. Help spread
  4. Cut and arrange sandwiches
Audrey thought this was the coolest project and was fascinated with the dark bread. She had not wanted to help until I showed her the picture of the finished product. We made a smaller version for a lunch box. I also cut the crusts off before adding ingredients so I could use them to make bread crumbs.
