It’s finally cooling off here at night in Florida.  And by cooling off, I mean that it drops below 70 at night.  I grew up in the Midwest in Minnesota so I do have weeks where I really miss the cool weather, crunching of leaves under foot and the smell of fall in the air.   Hope you’re enjoying the fleeting cool weather and changing leaves wherever you are today.

Miss G, my 4 year old, has a Halloween lunch again today.  She wanted a plain hummus wrap but I snuck in some julienned cucumber strips in the middle.  I have these neat silicone bands that keep the wraps from coming unraveled while she’s eating.  I wouldn’t recommend these for any kids under 4 ,but she manages them well.   Another trick is to put the wrap in the freezer or fridge for about an hour before sending it off.  It will stay put longer this way.  In the main compartment with the wrap is a seckel pear, a couple of grape tomatoes and a date coconut ball on a skeleton pick.  At the top left are pumpkin shaped mango pieces with a spider ring and poison bottle pick.  At the top right of her Easy LunchBoxes container are some tiny golden grapes with a jack-o-lantern face of Stretch Island fruit leather on top of the silicone pumpkin cup.

For her snack today, Miss G, the 4 year old, had sliced strawberries and below is a mixture of dried cranberries, pistachios, caramel apple coated almonds and cashews.

One of my favorite things to draw on and create food art with this time of year are the mandarin oranges and clementines.  They’re perfect for little fingers and fun!  I just grab a Sharpie marker (they’re non-toxic) and color away.  You can also just put stickers on them if you’re not inclined to draw.  This one is in honor or my new bento friend Erin over at Feeling A Little Lunchy. She’s just a tad moustache obsessed, and who doesn’t love a cute handlebar moustache?  Bonjour! and Happy Halloween to you too!

Little Miss Picky Eater, the 2 year old, has a LunchBots Quad full of Halloween fun today.  This is the perfect bento box for wee ones, in my opinion.  Just enough space for variety, keeps foods separate and hopefully less food wasted.  From the top left are a clementine peeled, jack-o-lantern sandwiches with pumpkin butter, sliced strawberries, and golden grapes with a pumpkin shaped mango on top.

Things I used to make this lunch:

Today was a leftover day.  Come on!  I can’t pull out spectacular on a daily basis 😉  I had some Rudi’s brand spelt tortillas and rice with black eyed peas just calling my name from the fridge.  So I rolled them up and made them lunch.

Miss G is reading now (at 4.5) which means I can’t spell out the things I don’t want her to hear any more.  BUT it does mean I can start small with lunchbox notes.  I wrote on her clementine today in marker and made a weird looking heart out of it to tell her “I Love You!”.  The Goodbyn bynto box fits the water bottle in the middle, and at the bottom are chunks of watermelon and pineapple.

Miss G’s snack is a Happy Tiffin with a half an apple surrounded by pieces of plum.  I added a leaf sticker for fun.  The round container has apricot mango soy yogurt in it.

For her afternoon snack she has a pickle with black and kalamata olives on top and the top container is full of mini carrots.

Miss A has a simple lunch today.  From the top left are a pink flower of plain hummus, organic corn chips, strawberry soy yogurt and pineapple and watermelon pieces packed in her LunchBots container.  Not shown are organic gala apples for little Miss A’s class snack.

We are big fans of matryoshka dolls (Russian nesting dolls) here.  I think I was more excited than my girls to have found this 2 tiered bento box on line.

Little Miss 4 year old had her new bento box today full of fresh fruits and vegetables.  On the left are pineapple chunks and red seedless grapes with a carrot flower on top.  One the right side are Rudi’s brand spelt tortilla wraps with almond butter, carrots and green apples julienned and sliced with cherry tomatoes and a cucumber flower below.

For her snack today, she has a Happy Tiffin packed with organic peaches slices, plums and raspberries. Not shown is her Kleen Kanteen bottle with ice water.
