Today is election day. Get out to the polls and vote!
In this bento: Striped apple, baby carrots under the apple, blackberries, yogurt covered star cookies, pizza rollups (pizza sauce, oregano, pepperoni, and a star shaped cheese stick wrapped up in the middle), and another apple chunk with "vote" carved into it.
I pressed the letter cutters into the apple to score it, then used the paring knife to remove the letter sections. For the striped apple I used a large knife to score lines across the apple, then removed every other stripe with my paring knife. I brushed lemon juice over the carved areas to keep the apple from browning.
