Gingerbread Man Bread with Chicken Salad

SMALL FAN do not need to go to school today as it was a holiday in lieu of Youth Day. So with the 2 kids at home, I thought I made a simple and light lunch instead. So decided to make a chicken salad and served it with wholemeal bread. I used a cookie cutter to cut out the shape of a gingerbread man for my boy and teddy bear for my girl and SMALL FAN loves it.
