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.

What Does the Fox Say?

Have I successfully planted that tune in your head that will stick with you  

I saw these fox cookies on Pinterest yesterday and was inspired to make them into a sandwich.  My girls are nuts about that song and I know they will enjoy opening their lunches to this little guy.

  • The fox-shaped sandwich is made from a star-shaped cookie cutter.   I made the sandwich out of a wheat bread that has a light color and then cut the top (fur) out of the heel of 100% whole grain wheat bread to show the color contrast.   I cut triangles for the ears and trimmed up around the face to show off his snout.   I finished him off with icing eyes and an M&M for his nose.
  • Strawberry slices
  • Green peas
  • Mini Kit Kat bar
Here are some of the items, or similar items, I used when creating this lunch:
