Making Lunch Fun, One Box at a Time

ben·tol·o·gy (ben t äləjē) Noun : The study of making nutritious and fun lunches for my daughters.

I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

I am itching to get started on Halloween themed lunches.   I'm not a crazy fan of Halloween (I mean, it's fun to dress up and who doesn't love all the candy?! But I'm not a Halloween fanatic) but I do love making Halloween lunches.

But, before I jump into Halloween, I wanted to make one last fall-themed lunch.  

  • Scarecrow sandwiches.   I made this by cutting out circle-shaped sandwiches (There are 2, stacked).   I cut the hat and nose out of the heel of the bread, accented with a flower pick, and then decorated it with food safe markers, icing eyes and linguine for straw hair.
  • Carrots and sugar snap peas with ranch
  • Red Grapes with a "fall" pick
  • Mini candy bar
Here are some of the items, or similar items, I used when creating this lunch:

  1. This is one of the cutest lunches I've ever seen! I might have to copy it (with credit, of course), as I am going to be a scarecrow for Halloween!

  2. This is SO cute! How creative of you to use the heel of the bread (even the two tone colors) to create a hat! Love it!

  3. That is ADAWWABLE! I love your scarecrow! man it looks so neat ^^
