Quacking Quackeroo and Cat in the Hat too!

Posted on: March 1, 2012

The girls’ school has been celebrating Dr. Seuss all week for his birthday.  He would have been 108 years old!   My fellow bloggers have been making fabulous foods all week for their kids, and now it’s time to hop!  Blog hop that is.  At the bottom of this page you’ll find a link to visit the next bento blogger who also worked hard on a Seuss lunch.  Please make sure to visit all our pages to check out my fun, creative bento friends !

I also discovered that this is my 100th post!  Yea, me!

It’s still “Q” week at school so she chose the quacking quackeroo from the Dr. Seuss ABC book.  I hand carved a gardein brand  “chicken” breast for the bird which was leftover from dinner last night.  I hand cut and carved the carrots out of organic mini carrots and also a bit for the tongue.  His eyes are small pieces of fruit leather.  The marshmallow fuzzy collar is made from vegan marshmallows by sweet & sara.

The Q above the quackeroo is made with whole grain bread, and the orange star shaped silicone cup is filled with edamame.  On the top right are watermelon stars and underneath that are pieces of blood orange.  Below that in the purple cup are green tea rice noodles with carrot stars on top.

Little Miss A’s very favorite Seuss story is “Cat in the Hat” or cat hat as she calls it.  I rolled out whole grain bread with a rolling pin which makes it much easier to cut and cut out Cat in the Hat.  His bowtie and facial features are all fruit leather.  His hat is strawberry and banana slices, and the umbrella is the kind you find in fruity drinks here in Florida!  The sandwich has Smart Deli “turkey” and Veggy “cheese” inside.  In the top right red cup is the same green tea pasta with watermelon fish, and below in the blue cup are edamame and a cucumber pinwheel.  Both girls’ lunches are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.
