EYE love pasta! I really do, and so do my kids. What’s even better is that this stuff is homemade. Not by me, but my local pasta place here in Sarasota, Florida, Peperonata Pasta.
They make all their pasta here in town, and it’s sold at Whole Foods stores all over the state. I usually pick some up from the owners themselves at the local Sarasota or San Marco Plaza farmer’s markets on the weekend. They make Vegan pasta that is incredible and loaded with healthy grains like quinoa, flax seed and millet. There are never leftovers in our house!
For her snack this afternoon, Miss G had sliced apples and ants on a log (celery with SunButter and raisins on top).
So I spotted this glow-in-the-dark container at the store. It was filled with Skittles. Of course, I dumped the Skittles and filled it with trail mix. The mouth twists open and shut. I love this for raisins, seeds, etc to make healthy snacks fun.
My husband had a container of soup (not shown) and this fruity bento to go along with it. At the top left are mango chunks, the top right is a clementine with Jack Skellington drawn on it. My kids are still to young for movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, but I love it. Who doesn’t love a good Tim Burton movie? In the bottom compartment are green grapes, sliced dapple dandy pluots, and d’anjou pear sections packed in an Easy LunchBoxes container.
Some of my bento blogging friends also did Jack Skellington lunches. Click on each one to find more Halloween ideas!
