A Meatless Monday with Bats

Happy Monday.  I was not going to participate in the Bento Blog Network theme of "vegan" this week.  However, my friend Sarah from bentoriffic posted a fun little banner add (see below picture) on facebook for a website  called Meatless Monday and it totally changed my mind.  I decided to play (aka enter) anyway.  Typically my family is sooo not vegan, but it can't hurt just this once or maybe every Monday!  We will see....

 
 
Top Box:  Applesauce in a pumpkin cup with cinnamon sprinkled on in the shape of bats (granted this did not turn out exceptionally),  yellow cherry tomatoes,  crackers with a *bat stamped on the top cracker, black olives, peanut butter in a bat head shaped cut with raisin accents (secretly it is really a cat head cup but for today its a bat).


Bottom Box:  Bat shaped honeydew, orange bell pepper bats, carrot bats, and more yellow cherry tomatoes.

**I found foam Halloween stamps at the Dollar Tree and I hoped that I could just color on them with the food dye markers and stamp on food, worked like a charm!**

FYI - I do really enjoy the Halloween season and have many Halloween bentos planned.  I will be doing at least one per week the whole month of October.  The week of Halloween there will be one every day.
