Tom and Jerry

The cat and mouse games of Tom and Jerry have been around for many, many years.  My children have just discovered these classic cartoons.


In this lunch:  "Jerry" hard boiled egg, ham rolls, Trader Joe's cheddar rocket crackers, orange slice, strawberries, "Tom & Jerry" watermelon, crinkle cut cucumber slices, and a Trader Joe's mango coconut chocolate.

I molded the egg with a popsicle mold (see below) using this technique.  I placed a paper towel in the lower part of the mold to help keep the egg in the top portion.  The face details did not mold on to the egg very well, I will try again another day :)


If you live in the UK you can stop on by your local McDonald's and order a happy meal and these fun bento tools are the toys inside.  Unfortunately, they are not available in the USA (which made me want them sooo much more).  I was able to buy the Tom and Jerry cutter and Jerry popsicle mold off eBay.

Go for the Gold - Leftovers on Fridays

One more Winter Olympics themed lunch......Go for the GOLD team USA!


In this lunch:  Sliced hard boiled egg, pepperoni "USA", leftover asparagus, strawberries, kiwi slices, celery, and a chocolate coin as the gold medal.



I decided to pack this Olympic lunch in my matryoshka bento box since Sochi is hosting the 2014 Winter Olympics.  I have been tuning in frequently this past week.  The matryoshka doll had a dominant presence on the slopestyle course.

W is for Whale

The last letter lunch, F is for Frog shaped French Toast, linked the gap at the beginning of the alphabet of letter themed lunches that I had started quite a while ago (late 2012).  Now to complete the alphabet, we jumped down to the letter W where we left off when we switched preschools.


In this lunch:  Strawberries, whale shaped watermelon and a "W" watermelon, crinkle cut cucumbers, turkey whale sandwich with a candy eye, and Cheez-its.
