Since it's October (and my birthday is tomorrow, which is sort of my starting point for OK to do Halloween), get ready for a whole lot of fall and Halloween themed bentos! I did start a day early, since I was looking for something else and found this Halloween haunted house cookie cutter and couldn't resist trying something with it.
Ben has a cream cheese & jelly sandwich, made with Santa Cruz Organic Blackberry-Pomegranate Jam (I think it's his new favorite) and Nature's Own 100& Whole Wheat Sandwich Rounds. The bread is such a nice blank canvas that I just had to decorate it. We have an orange cheddar haunted house (I cut the extra doors and windows as best I could), with a spooky white cheddar bat flying by, and some rickety carrot fencing. Up top are veggie chips, they don't fit in the theme, but I needed to put something there. Maybe they are storm clouds? To the right, he has a piece of pumpkin cake with a jack-o-lantern pick and strawberries/honeydew with a spooky little ghost.
Lunch is packed in one of our Easy Lunchboxes, and, in keeping with the theme, we used an orange lid and a black cooler bag!
