Día de los Muertos - Leftovers on Fridays

Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday the occurs from 10/31 - 11/2.  It is tradition to honor the dead with decorated sugar skulls.


Top right:  Leftover mac & cheese with decorative carrot shapes.

Bottom right:  Day of the dead skull shaped ham sandwich on top of sugar snap peas and a few pomegranate seeds.

Left side:  Cucumbers, mangoes, blackberries, carrots, and pomegranate seeds.

Although the skull sandwiches look good just with the cookie stamp, they would have been much nicer if I had taken the time to decorate with food markers or natural coloring.  Alas, I was being a bit lazy!

This lunch is packed in a LunchBots trio.

Here are some other awesome Day of the Dead bentos:
