Candy Corn Lunch

Hopefully the girls will enjoy this sweet treat lunch:

  • 2 candy corn-shaped sandwiches (stacked). The "candy corn" on top is made from a piece of provolone that I colored yellow with a food safe marker and then put a strip of cheddar in the center for the yellow/orange/white effect.

  • Carrots with ranch

  • Red and green grapes with a "Happy Halloween" pick

  • Candy corn (of course!!)

It's Haley's turn to eat lunch with the principal. She's a dog fan so we made her a puppy theme lunch.

  • 2 ham and cheddar puppy-shaped sandwiches

  • Carrots with ranch (in a puppy cup)

  • Red and Green grapes with puppy picks

  • Hershey Kisses

  1. Candy corn is super cute!! :)
    That principal must love you!! Does she take turns eating with each student?

  2. I love the candy corn. Very cute.

  3. The candy corn is so cute and actually looks doable even for "new-to-bento-not-artistic" me! Cute, cute... definitely going to have to get myself some food safe markers (the second time I've said that today!)
