"For Little Tummies"- Spinach-Walnut Chutney and Cheese Sandwiches

Do they remind you of anything?? Or any creature to be precise?? I am sure it won't. But these were really made for 'E' and 'A's Dinosaur themed birthday party!!! Like the 'Stegosaurus" type of Dinosaurs have plates on their backs...they sandwiches had 'Almond Chips' on the back to look like Dinosaur plates!!!
The kids and even the parents loved these little " Stegosaurus Bites" !!!

The best part....they are so nutritious...with the Spinach and Walnut Chutney....the cheese...the almond chips..you will love making them again and again!!
