Cute Little Lunches

If you are a Mom and have access to the internet, you have seen them.  You don't even have to be a Pinterest addict to know what I am talking about. 

Those cute little packed lunches with star shaped veggies and heart shaped fruit intended to prove you are the better Mom lure your little darling into consuming healthy food. 

This is not a discussion about the merits of such food preparation.  What I want to know is this :  What becomes of all those little leftover bits of meat, cheese and veggie after you have carved Mt. Rushmore from a cucumber??

Sure you can sometimes use the bits in a quesadilla or quiche or something.... but on a daily basis. Seriously?  I have a enough trouble coordinating dinners and turning leftover roast into soup etc.  If I also had to mentally track what my lunch leftovers were going to be and how to use them efficiently things would get crazier than they already are.

So what do all of you cute-lunch making moms really do with those extra bits?
