5 Ham & Cheese Meals Made in Minutes

Five ham & cheese meals made in 5 minutes or less.

This started out as a challenge from my brother-in-law Jared, who is a college student. He told me he needed me to come up with quick easy meals made in 5 minutes or less. 
Well in college you don't have much room for food let alone money for food.
But these meals are affordable, all made quickly, and with basically the same ingredients. 

1 pkg. Ham lunch meat
1 bag Mozzarella cheese
Ranch Dressing

Under the Sea Tuna & Cheese Octopus

 Under the Sea, Tuna and Cheese. Make a normal meal into a masterpiece!
This tuna and cheese octopus made my little girl's day! She sat down and said, "mom it's an oto-pus!" I think I will start making "lunch art" more often.

What's on the plate

(1 can tuna (drained) with 1 T. sour cream, salt and pepper to taste)

Scoop out desired amount of prepared tuna onto the plate
Take 1 string cheese and cut it in half
Slice 4 "legs" into the cheese without cutting it all the way up 
(all 4 legs should be attached at the top)
Add carrot eyes and mouth
Crackers for the sand
Celery and Broccoli for the seaweed!
