Ok, well he’s a mashed potato snowman.  I live in Florida!  It’s the closest my kids will ever get here.  So I got two HUGE bags of organic potatoes this week in our organic co-op box of fruits and vegetables.  I decided we could never finish them all unless I made something big with them.  Hoping to knock out some latkes this weekend with them too.

Little Miss A has lunch packed in her stainless LunchBots Quad.  From the top left are blueberries and raspberries, rice and quinoa mixed under the mashed potato snowman.  He has raisin bits for eyes and a teeny carrot nose.  In the bottom right compartment are cashews and dried cranberries and in the bottom left are snowman shaped watermelon pieces.

Snowflakes with stars by bentoriffic

My girls have never seen it snow, but they think it’s magical stuff and love the idea of playing in the snow.  I decided to make them snowflake lunches to make it feel like winter at lunch.  It’s still in the 80s here so it’s as close as it will get!  The snowflake sandwiches are almond butter on Rudi’s Organic brand whole grain bread.  I used a tiny star cutter on the top and filled the small star with Christmas colored sprinkles.  One either side are honeydew melon and cantaloupe stars.   In the top left compartment are dried cranberries with a Crimson Gold organic apple in the middle.  In the top right compartment are pineapple chunks with a watermelon snowflake on top packed in her Easy Lunchboxes container.

Christmas tree paperchase snack bento by bentoriffic

Both kids had the same snack today.  They had Osem Bisli onion ring snacks which I found in the Hanukkah end cap at my local Target store.  The kids loved them.  Also included were little apple cinnamon Christmas tree muffins.  The bento boxes are a set of Paperchase stacking boxes that Target is carrying right now.

Snowflake lunch with tomatoes by bentorifficMiss G has a similar lunch, but she loves tomatoes.  She has the same snowflake sandwiches on Rudi’s Organic whole grain bread with mini tomatoes, cantaloupe and honeydew pieces.  In the top compartments, she also has dried cranberries, a Crimson Gold apple, pineapple pieces and a cantaloupe snowflake packed in her Easy Lunchboxes container.

 

Another day of lunch at home.  In an effort to teach my kids about other religions, we have a bunch of dreidels in the house and we’re talking about how some of our friends began their Hanukkah celebration yesterday.  For the Festival of Lights I put the 2 candles on their sandwiches made of Pocky sticks with cheese “flames”.  Little Miss A had a dreidel shaped sandwich with blue sunflower seeds for the Gimel on top with turkey and cheese on whole grain bread.  She also had a side of blueberries with white chocolate covered sunflower seeds mixed in.

Miss G had a PB & J on whole grain in the Star of David shape. Slices of avocado are on either side.   She got a provolone dreidel with blue sunflower seed Shin on it.  She also had Pocky stick candles with colby jack “flames on top.  Happy Hanukkah to all my friends who are celebrating!
