Who doesn’t love ice cream?  I do…until it makes me sick, or…well, now I just eat coconut milk ice cream sparingly.  I thought it would be fun to make colorful ice cream scoops for lunch and pretend like we’re having it as a special treat.
Bentoriffic- Ice cream cone bento

Miss A (3 years old)  has an Easy LunchBoxes container with tiny ice cream cone sandwiches on Rudi’s brand Cracked Wheat bread.  I used a small pastry plunger cutter to make them.  I do press the bread a bit before cutting, cut the shape and then press the plunger VERY firmly to get the fancy imprints in the bread.  Then fill them as desired.  Above  the sandwiches in the pink cup is jasmine rice with balsamic glazed chickpeas. Next to that are some orange “scoops” of cantaloupe and some dried apricots.  In the top left compartment are honeydew melon balls and in the top right are more “scoops” of watermelon.

Bentoriffic- Flower power and apple bentoMiss G has been asking some days to help make her lunches.  Sometimes it’s in the mad rush of the morning, but she loves to cook and help so I try to accommodate whenever I can since I know she’s more likely to eat it if she makes it.  She chose flowers for the above lunch in her Easy LunchBoxes container.  She wanted chocolate almond butter, but we settled on regular almond butter and blackberry jam on Rudi’s Cracked Wheat bread.  She also wanted to poke holes in them so she chose a tiny clover shaped cutter for the middle.  Above the sandwiches are flower cups of dried cranberries and cashews.  In the top left are grape tomatoes which she eats by the container and in the top right is an apple shaped apple which I made for her.  I soaked it in the juice of half and orange for about 10 minutes before packing to prevent browning.

Bentoriffic- flower snack bento

For snack time today, Miss G packed herself some sliced cucumbers, flower cut watermelon shapes, an apple cinnamon flower muffin and raspberries in lettuce silicone cups packed in her LunchBots Uno.

Wednesday is a perfect day for leftovers.  Mom’s feeling a bit under the weather so dump dinner in an Easy LunchBoxes container & voila.  Lunch is served.

Lunch today (dinner last night) is brown rice with mixed vegetables (broccoli, carrots, snow peas and onions) on top.  I packed a tiny sauce container of soy sauce.   In the top left container are grape tomatoes and in the top right are red grapes.

In her Happy Tiffin stainless bento, Miss G’s snack is a seckel pear, clementine sections, kiwi slices and a container of roasted pumpkin seeds.

 

Little Miss 2 year old has a LunchBots Quad for lunch.   From the top left are clementine sections with a star container of pumpkin seeds, red seedless grapes, star sandwiches with pumpkin pecan butter and a small Hail Merry brand chocolate vegan macaroon, and at the bottom left are mini carrots and sugar snap peas.

It’s almost trick or treat time.  I wish I could say that I’m ready, but I’m not.   My kids’ costumes were ordered and still haven’t arrived.  I am throwing a party in my front yard this year with my neighbor so we can feed the kids healthy food, play games and wear them out a bit before trick or treating.  We did the same last year, and they were pretty full from healthy food before all the candy so it was a success!  We made almond butter and jam sandwiches, fresh fruit, vegetable sticks with dip, hummus and pretzels and ice water. Any fun ideas that you all are planning?  I’d love to hear your ideas!

My 2 year old has a jack o lantern sandwich made from the heel of the bread loaf and filled with pumpkin butter spread.  She also has black olives, cantaloupe pumpkins, dried apricot pumpkins and at the top left is a nut and seed mixture with dried cranberries complete with zombie hand and tombstone.  At the top right is a peeled clementine packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

Little Miss G (4) has a similar lunch today.  She has the same jack-o-lantern sandwich, a jack-o-lantern clementine, pumpkin shaped dried apricots and trail mix of nuts and berries in her Easy Lunchboxes Mini dipper container.  At the top left is a seckel pear and at the top right are pumpkin shaped cantaloupe pieces packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

And for a snack I packed a Happy Tiffin stainless bento with raspberries, a clementine ghost and the round container full of cashews.

Happy weekend, everyone!
