Fun Little Elephant Bento Lunch

It's been awhile since we had a "Peanut" lunch, with Peanut being what the boy called all elephants when he was a toddler.  But there's always time for a quick elephant lunch.

It's cute, it's simple, and what isn't there to love about elephants?

Thanksgiving Turkey Bento Lunches

There's still time to make a cute turkey lunch before Thanksgiving!

Unlike some of our creations, this one doesn't require special cookie cutters or a whole lot of skill--just a knife or kitchen scissors and a sandwich!   And maybe some candy eyeballs.

Simple Egg Salad Bento Lunch

We've had some simpler lunches again the last few weeks.

The husband was away on a training mission for a month, so there was a lot of streamlining the process with there only being one driver at home.  Lunch was made extra simple too!

Simple Name Sandwich Bento Lunch

Feeding a starving, now-teen, boy means that I need to pack the most amount of food, which leaves a lot of less room for cute.

Occasionally, I do a few little things to amuse myself, like labeling his lunch.

Kebab Sandwiches Bento Lunch

This lunch was actually a purposeful pick from my oldest.

Her friends, especially the guys, are quite amused by all her teeny tiny foods, so I told her we could make mini sandwich kebabs.  This actually is a full sandwich worth of food, but it seems minuscule when you lay it out this way.

Haunted House Halloween Bento Lunch

I needed one more Halloween bento lunch for my girl this year.

We don't need as many daily lunches anymore, so I have to plan for the days we need a holiday themed one.  After I made her brother the spider web sandwich, we decided we needed at least one for her too.

Spider Bento Lunch for Halloween

We needed at least one new Halloween Bento Lunch this year and I was having trouble coming up with new ideas.

In the process of looking for a cookie cutter, I found an old spider web outline cutter.  Inspiration struck and I figured I could likely use a knife to cut out the inside design.  If that worked, I knew I could make a spider somehow or another.
