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 received a lovely package from a good friend who sent me all kinds of fun Halloween things including these ghost and bat shaped corn chips.  Miss G will use them to dip in her hummus sprinkled with pumpkins & bats.  To the right is a sliced plum, and below is a homemade corn muffin stamped with a ghost.  I also cut up a string cheese with a crinkle cutter to make little ghosts and next to those are mini carrots with ranch dip in the bunny container.

 

Little A has a similar lunch today.  Her picture is a bit out of focus today, but I didn’t notice until now so it’s blurry. Sorry!  She’s got a small container of Sabra hummus too with sprinkles, green snap peas for dipping, red seedless grapes sliced in half,  the same string cheese ghosts, grape tomatoes halved and a bunch of yogurt covered raisins with ghost faces.

I use these Foodoodler food safe markers for writing on food.  You can buy them through their site, on Amazon and even at most local kitchen stores in the baking section.
