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.

Five Easy Halloween Bentos You Can Make!

We love Halloween at our house and Halloween foods just make it better!

We've had kind of a busy fall, so this week is going to be all about the Halloween bento lunches and other foods.  I've already made my favorite pumpkin bread and fluffy pumpkin dip.  There will also be mummy dogs at some point and, of course, mummy pizzas!  As for lunches, here are Five Favorite Easy Halloween Bentos You Can Still Make!

Bringing Back the PlanetBox Bento

One of the kids mentioned that we hadn't used our PlanetBox in awhile.

The way the current kitchen is set up, it ended up on a top shelf and, you know the saying, out of sight, out of mind.  So we remedied that with this lunch.

A Boring Birthday Bento Lunch, and Cupcakes!

So the day after the girl's birthday, she needed a lunch for school.

But since it was the day after her birthday, she made mini cupcakes to share with her friends, so she definitely was not wanting a bigger lunch.  (Side note: If you haven't been reading here long, she is in high school and they are welcome to bring food to share.). The other thing she didn't know was that I was picking her up immediately after lunch to take her away for a birthday surprise weekend with our besties.  So between those two things, her birthday lunch is very very boring.
