Pumpkin Bentos

Last week was a short school week due to fall break, now we are back to regular schedule and I have two packed lunches to share with you today.   We visited the pumpkin patch on Saturday, so pumpkin themed bentos for the kids it is.  First up is pumpkin pizza.  Not literally!  It's a make your own pizza on pumpkin shaped pita bread lunch.


In this bento:  Crinkle cut purple carrots, tomato sauce with a sprinkle of oregano, black olives, pumpkin shaped pepperoni, a strawberry, shredded cheese, and pumpkin shaped pita bread.


Next is the Jack-o-lantern and spiders bento for my boy.


In this bento:  Ham & cheese jack-o-lantern sandwich, apple slices, Cheez-Its, and crinkle cut purple carrots.

The jack-o-lantern sandwich cutter I found at Walmart last year.

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.

Toxic Lunch

I was able to get a little bento shopping done this weekend.  I bought some fun Halloween food items at World Market and also swung by Target and picked up mini cauldrons from the dollar spot.  To top the weekend off I also received my new skull egg mold from BentoUSA on Saturday!



In this bento:  Skull shaped hard boiled egg, salsa, snap peas with a "toxic" cupcake pick (World Market), Fright Bites tortillas chips (also from World Market), and chocolate chip stuffed raspberries in the cauldron (Target $ spot).  A Funkins cloth napkin is tucked in on the side to accent the lunch.
