A Spooktacular Lunch!

Fall is undeniably in the air here in Virginia. The rain is coming down and there is a chill in the air. This is my favorite time of year. The trees are turning and it is a beautiful site to behold. That being said. Let take a look at lunch!

Witches sand pumpkins and bats! Oh My!
In todays lunch the girls had leftover chicken tenders on a croissant, apple slices, organic sandwich cookies, and pretzels. Take a close look the pretzels are shaped like bats and pumpkins. Let's not forget a favorite. Candy corn!

The boy had a leftover chicken tender & spaghetti. He also had organic sandwich cookies, apple slices and pretzels.

I also made a special lunch for grandma today. She has been asking me to brew her up a lunch since I started doing bentos. Grandmas lunch has Halloween popcorn mix, Apple Newton's, Smart Puffs and three little sandwiches. Let's not forget the candy corn. To make the sandwich I used some cookie press cutters in a bat shape and one that spelled BOO! Such a quick and simple little lunch!

Special lunch for grandma!


  1. These are all adawwable and I love that you made one for Gramma! I bet she loved it!
    I have that same set of cookie presses/cutters but couldn't get them to function too well for sandwiches. I bet you had to do each bread separate? If not you're more talented than I!

    All of this is too cute! Your little bits are lucky kiddos!

  2. Aww... Thank you. I did have to do each piece of bread separate. I could get three mini sandwiches out of one large piece of bread. I was really surprised how well it worked. They were super cute! I could easily see the details.
