Faith's Hoot-iful Bento

Crazy, busy day today, and it's not even close to over. The kids have taekwondo in a hour, then we go straight from there to drop Faith off at Brownies, come home, start dinner, then go pick Faith back up at Brownies and hopefully eat dinner after 8!

Because of all that, I thought we needed a little snack box along the way. Nothing too heavy, just some healthy goodies will we can get around to eating dinner. Plus, it was a chance to use the insets of my new Wilton linzer cookie cutter.



Faith has two mini pitas, stuffed with tuna salad, and topped with two hoot-iful white cheddar owls, sitting on an orange cheddar branch. Baby carrots help stabilize the sandwich. The middle compartment holds pretzels and still frozen blackberries, while the right compartment has green grapes and cantaloupe. Can't remember exactly where I got this box, but isn't it cute?

ETA: Alie reminded me in the comments, it's from the Dollar Spot at Target!
