Today is an important day.  Not the day to be apathetic & say that your voice doesn’t make a difference.  It does.  As Americans, we have the great privilege of living in a country that allows us freedoms and rights that were fought for and earned.  Regardless of who you will vote for, please go today and exercise your rights!

GO VOTE!

I made Miss G a patriotic bento today.  She has grilled non-dairy grilled cheese (Daiya brand) sandwiches on whole grain and pumpernickel with 2 tiny crimson gold apples and a Liberty Bell pick, dried apricots and an Easy LunchBoxes mini dippers container with cashews.  In the top left compartment are yellow and red grape tomatoes and at the top right is vegan pesto pasta with an American flag pick packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

Miss G’s snack from the top left are carambola/star fruit slices, a peeled clementine, star shaped watermelon pieces and plum slices in her LunchBots Uno.

Miss A has her scaled down version of the same lunch.  From the top left she has sliced strawberries, vegan pesto pasta, watermelon stars and Daiya grilled (dairy free) cheese sandwiches.

We’ve been hunkered down all weekend and part of this week just trying to stay safe and dry form Tropical Storm Debby.    We’ve had torrential downpours, flooding and 60 MPH gusts of wind.  The girls wanted to watch Despicable Me while snuggling so I made a lunch to match.

The sandwich is Gru the so called villain of the movie.  He’s made of Rudi’s Nut & Oat bread.  His nose is the bread crust, his teeth are vegan cheese, his eyes are Florida grown lychee halves and the pupils and eyebrows are made from plums.  The stars and rocket are homemade biscuits from the weekend.  I made the minions from pineapple chunks and fruit leather for the goggles and eyes.

Our storm lunch is a lightning bolt made from the same Rudi’s bread.  Above it are more of our homemade crackers shaped like clouds and an umbrella.  In the yellow flower cup are plum sections with an umbrella pick.  Below in the oval cup are red seedless grapes.

And the sides for my husband today are a salad made from baby kale, spinach and arugula.  At the top right is edamame succotash with edamame, corn, tomatoes, white wine, garlic, parsley, basil, jalapeno peppers,  and pepper.  At the top left are lychee fruit unpeeled all packed in his Easy Lunch Box.

Tools I used to make this lunch:
