There's a fly in my popcorn

It has been an interesting week at our house.  Nothing has really gone as planned.  I for one am glad Friday is here!  A big tin of popcorn arrived at our door this week and I am putting it to good use in our bentos.  First one, "there's a fly in my popcorn!"

In this bento:  Crinkle cut carrots, ham, apple slices, raspberries in a spider cup, and cheddar popcorn with a fly on top.
