My new friend Michelle bought me a cookie cutter, and as slim as the chances were it was one I did not have yet!  These cute little ghouls are made with my new ghost cutter. Thank you, Michelle!  The sandwiches are made on Rudi’s brand whole grain bread with pumpkin pecan butter filling.  The ghost picks just above are filled with grape tomatoes and a seckel pear is inbetween them.  At the top left are cantaloupe chunks with a kiwi ghost on top and kiwi slices to the right with a happy ghost ring on top packed in Easy LunchBoxes.

The Eat Wholly company who makes Wholly Guacamole sent me a variety of their awesome products to try.  We were already fans of theirs.  What makes their guacamole (and other products) even better is that there are no artificial preservatives or junk in their foods.  Just freshly packed goodness.  I love to freeze ours the night before since it’s thawed for the kids just in time for their lunch.  My 4 year old today had a Frankenstein snack with black olives for the face and chips for dipping in her snack bento.

Little Miss 2 year old has an army of friendly ghosts in her LunchBots Quad.  From the top left are black seedless grapes, cantaloupe ghost pieces, a seckel pear at the bottom right and mini ghost sandwiches made with a small cookie press.  The sandwiches are Rudi’s brand whole grain bread with pumpkin butter filling.

For her snack, Miss A had a similar frozen guacamole spidery witch with black olive features.  I really meant for it to be a happy witch with the chips for a hat, but it looks more like a cutesy spider to me now.  Either way, I know it will get eaten.

My husband’s lunch is far less festive, but I managed to sneak a ghost ring into his Easy LunchBoxes container today.  He had the Happy Herbivore’s Eggless Salad today. You can find her recipe for Eggless Salad here.

It’s made with tofu, packed full of flavor, calcium and protein, and I actually think it’s better than any egg salad I’ve ever had.I packed the salad on top of the lettuce and sent the bread separately so it didn’t get soggy before he ate it.

I’m outta here!  It was a last minute decision, but I think it will prove to be a great one.  I was invited last minute to the Niche Mommy conference in New Orleans this week.  I’ve never been to New Orleans so I’m really looking forward to checking the French Quarter out.  My high school symbol was the fleur de lis (goes with my French loving theme well) so I decided to do a Fleur De Lis salad for my husband.  After all, he has to take care of the kids while I learn all kinds of new blogging techniques, social media tricks, hopefully improve my photographic skills and maybe have some good old fashioned girl fun while I’m away.  The salad is baby spinach and lettuce from the local organic farm.  On top is a heart of tempeh (fermented soybeans) which reminds me of a heavy barley.  Sliced mushrooms and fleur de lis cucumbers are also on the salad.  At the top left is quinoa salad with scallions, italian parsley, red and green peppers.  And at the top right are peach sections packed in his Easy LunchBox container.  Not shown is his ginger salad dressing.

I packed myself an Easy LunchBox for the trip today.  From the top left are dried mango pieces, pretzels and crackers for dipping.  In the small blue silicone cup is Eggless Salad by one of my favorite vegan chefs, Lindsay Nixon, better known as the Happy Herbivore.  Lindsay’s recipes are simple enough to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes, and yummy enough that they will become weekly staples in your house.  If you’re looking for meatless and/or dairy free recipes, I highly recommend purchasing her cookbooks.  I have 2 and a third pre-ordered from Amazon I like them so much!  Organic strawberry hearts mini almond butter sammies and Sabra hummus make up the rest of my lunch.

Hoping everyone has a fabulous weekend!
