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.

Sleeping Bats

I was given the opportunity to test out CuteZCute's latest creation, the Animal Palz Mini Sandwich and Egg Press and I loved it!   Like the original CuteZCute, you get several adorable creations in one press.  The system allows you to create a bat, a monkey, a sheep or a panda.  As the name indicates, you can use it to make mini pocket sandwiches or hard boiled eggs.   I used the monkey to make a hard boiled egg - it turned out adorable but my daughter ate it before I could snap a picture!   I used the bat to make this Halloween lunch. I made 2 versions of this lunch: one with PB&J and the other with turkey and cheese and the Animal Palz press worked great on both.  

  • 2 bat-shaped mini pocket sandwiches, stacked.  I put the bats upside down, because that's how bats sleep :-)
  • Clementine with a bat cupcake pick
  • Peas
  • Peanut butter filled pretzels
  • Mini candy bar
Thank you Bento USA for giving me the opportunity to test the Animal Palz!  Two thumbs up!!
Here are some of the items, or similar items, I used when creating this lunch:

My other bento buddies have been having fun with the Animal Palz too.  Check out:
