Angel & baby Jesus bento by bentoriffic

So maybe this isn’t the most reverent representation of the manger scene, but I was limited on time this morning.  I wanted Miss G to have the manger scene for her lunch…the reason for the season.  Baby Jesus is made from Stretch Island fruit leather on a bed of cashews.  The angel is Justin’s Almond Butter on Rudi’s Organic brand Whole Grain bread.  The star is a dried apricot and next to the angel are a Christmas tree pick of grape tomatoes.  At the top left are organic blueberries with a gift food pick and in the top right compartment of her Easy Lunchboxes container are organic raspberries.

And above is the elusive mom lunch.  I say this because I rarely get lunch.  I’m lucky if I have a protein bar or smoothie while on the run.  Today I am driving down to Miss G’s school to have lunch with her so I packed myself a cute lunch too.  I’m having a gingerbread girl on Rudi’s Organic whole grain bread with almond butter & blackberry jam.  I stuck some raisin buttons on with almond butter.  She has cinnamon candy eyes and a fruit leather mouth.  I used a Hello Kitty bow for her hair pick.  She is surrounded by grape tomatoes on Christmas tree picks.  In the top left compartment are pineapple chunks with a candy cane food pick and the top right has organic blueberries and raspberries.  Merry Christmas to you all!

I will be taking a break to spend time with my family while the kids are out of school.  Hoping everyone has some time to relax and appreciate all the little things in life.  I look forward to hearing from you in the new year!

Much Love, Sarah

If I haven’t raved about them enough, The LunchPunch makes some of the greatest sandwich cutters out there.  They are cute, they waste little bread, they’re sturdy and they save SO much time with lunches!  This one is Rudi’s Nut and Oat bread with a pumpernickel dog piece in the middle.  I used bread crust for his collar and the flowers cutouts are from the apple at the top left and a tree trunk pick.  On the dog picks on either side are green seedless grapes.  The top left is an apple tree with flower cutouts and more green grapes underneath.  At the top right are watermelon fire hydrants because we all know dogs are drawn to them!

Miss G’s snack today is sugar snap peas, grape tomatoes and mini carrots.

And Little Miss A is doing the letter C this week so the topic of the week was the circus.  From the bottom left is a round clown face sandwich.  The eyes are vegan chocolate chips, the nose is a dried apricot, the cheeks are raspberries, the mouth is Stretch Island fruit leather and the hair is Shirataki brand tofu pasta.  The hat above is watermelon and cantaloupe triangles surrounded by green grapes.  At the top right are mini carrots and a honeydew melon elephant with a pick hat. He’s standing on a circus stand below made of watermelon and cantaloupe with circus themed picks of the big top, another elephant and a seal in her LunchBots Quad.
