In Our Lunch Boxes: Week 2

Little man started preschool today, so we're back to making two lunches a day. Actually, I now do four lunches twice a week and my first grader buys his lunch on Fridays. (Monday my little guy is home, but he just thinks Bentos are great at home, too!). This is the run-down from the rest of last week and the first couple of days of this week.

Pizza monster (made with one of the Deli Flats bread): I place a slice of cheese in the middle to "adhere" the flat together, a little pizza sauce, pepperoni eyes, mushroom mouth with cheddar teeth and there you have it. Strawberries, bunnies, banana (with a "banana-gram") and milk.

Pizza Muffins! YUM! You can find the recipe here.
Animal crackers, egg (made in car mold) and cantaloupe stars

This little monster is all over Pinterest, so I had to try my hand at him, too! I used both Provolone & Cheddar slices for the eyes and adhered with cream cheese. (To make a perfect circle, no need to buy a fancy cutter...I use the "wrong end" of my cake decorating tips and the coupler, too. Works like a charm.)

Star-shaped sandwich (ham & cheese) with extra cheese stars, wheat thins stix, carrots, cantaloupe, cucumber and goldfish.

Getting a bit lazy & adding some store bought goodies here...but again with the yummy Pizza Muffins, cantaloupe stars & wheat thins stix.

Have a GREAT week!!
