Is this month flying by or what? My to do list keeps getting longer and I don’t seem to be getting a lot of it done. Mostly I just want to cozy up on the couch and watch T.V. Maybe its the advent of the cooler weather that makes me want to be such a home body or maybe it’s that fact that it’s dark at 5:30. Whatever it is, I sure do love this time of year. Makes me feel like baking and taking long walks and picking apples. What’s your favorite thing to do this time of year?
Now we move on to the bentos, I have two days worth for you. First Thursday’s:
This is The Oldest’s, it’s a Make-Your-Own sandwich in a neat box we picked up at Old Navy last year. In it she has a ciabatta roll with ham, salami and honey turkey. On the other side she has baby carrots in a spider cup, red and green grapes on our homemade picks (you can find the how to here) and a bag of yummy chocolate drizzled caramel popcorn.
This is the Youngest’s snack from Thursday, not very pretty I know, but all her favorites so it was gobbled right up! In it she had a clementine split in half and decorated with food doodlers to look like Jack O’ Lanterns. The one on the right sure is looking menacingly at the other, don’t you think? There is also a small orange wedge, some grapes on picks, a tiny jello and some pieces of chocalate chip waffle. She didn’t have a very good breakfast, so this was a great morning snack for her.
Here’s a shot of her lunch, a ham and cheese sandwich cut into Jack O’ Lanterns with a sandwich cookie cutter I bought at Target, a spider jello, some grapes on skull and crossbones picks and some oranges wedges. Also mostly eaten, only some oranges were left.
Now on to today’s bentos:
Here’s a peek at The Youngest’s morning snack. She has a clementine Jack O’ Lantern, some goldfish and a little chocolate dizzled carmel popcorn.
The is the “sidecar” bento for her lunch that day. Since she brought a thermos with last night’s dinner leftovers in it all she needed was a few extras to go with it. In this sandwich box from the grocery store she had a cut up cheese stick, a few mini cheese crackers, a half of an apple carved with a Jack O’ Lantern face and a few grapes with another one of out homemade picks. Isn’t he cute?
That’s all for today, this week had been a busy one for us. Hoping to relax this weekend with the family, maybe go pick up our pumpkins finally!
Have a great weekend,
