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!

Above is Peperonata’s tagliatelle vegan pasta topped with 2 eyeball rings and grape tomatoes.  Underneath the sliced  strawberries at the top are golden grapes packed in her Easy LunchBoxes.

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!

My little ones got aliens for lunch today.  Both of them had soy butter and jam on whole grain bread.  The eyes are candy and the feet & arm made from sliced carrots.  Miss G’s one-eyed alien has a hat pick,  carrot sticks, a skewer of pineapple and mandarins and whole pecans.  I sent an apple sauce as well and ice water to drink.

Miss A has a 3 eyed alien with a pick hat and carrot feet.  To the left are mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, chopped medjool dates and 2 mini carrot sticks.  She also had an applesauce and ice water with her lunch.

Hope you’ll forgive my absence!  I took an unexpected trip, but I’m back on target now.   Back to Halloween!

Little Miss 3.5 got an eyeball surprise in her lunch today.  I used a wine glass to cut the circle for her PB & J.  I took a red food safe marker to draw the veins and a gummy eyeball for the center.  The sandwich is surrounded by grape tomatoes and 2 marshmallow bats.  The mouth below is 2 large apple slices (soaked in lemon water for a few minutes to prevent browning) with mini marshmallows for teeth.  Around the mouth are red seedless grapes.

Little Miss 1.5 also got a fun lunch today.  To the left is Annie’s Organic spiral macaroni leftover with a tomato face on top. On the right are mandarin oranges with a colby cheese ghost on top.

And a jack-o-lantern PB & J with a couple of fun marshmallows for a treat.  On the left are red, seedless grapes and 2 colby cheese ghosts on top.  For bigger kids, you can make the jelly bleed out of the face by removing punchouts, but my kids just end up with lunch all over them so I try to save the clothing.
