Today’s W lunches are a witch and a watering can.  I offered a few other options, and Miss G came up with watering can on her own.  I had to cut both sandwiches by hand since I don’t have any cookie cutters that fit the bill.

The watering can is made with Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  I microwaved each piece for 10 seconds and then use a rolling pin to flatten them before cutting.  I do like to garden, and Miss G loves to help too.  The holes in the spout are black sesame seeds.  At the bottom are tulip carrots with leaf picks at the bottom.  In the tiny butterfly container are dried cherries with a carrot butterfly on top.  In the small cup at top left are honeydew melon butterflies and carrot butterflies.   In the larger cup at the top right are strawberry hearts with a carrot butterfly on top.

Miss A has a friendly witch.   Her face and eyes are made of vegan cheese,her pupils and mouth are fruit leather as are the bands on the hat & broom.  Her broom handle is the bread crust and the broom bristles are the heel of the bread.  I wasn’t thrilled about the way her face turned out.  She looks like she could use some sun, but I didn’t have time to alter it.  She is flying across a leftover corn off the cob crescent moon.  The honeydew melon shapes at the top right are a witch’s hat, stars and crescent moons.  In the other cup are strawberry hearts and blueberries.  Both lunches are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.

I was a bit apple happy this morning so Miss G got an apple shaped sandwich on whole wheat with peanut butter, jelly & honey.  I put some green sprinkles on the leaf part of the sandwich.  This picture isn’t the greatest 🙂  The strawberries are all cut into small apples.  I used a small tulip cutter to make mozzarella string cheese flowers & put them on picks with leaves.  I halved an apple after using the same large apple cutter.  Then soak the apple in some kind of citrus juice and water to prevent browning.  Little G loves lemon juice so that’s what I used today.  I also used some cute separators to keep the sandwich from getting soggy.

Just including another awful picture so you can see that I included some leftover Annie’s mac & cheese and carrots cut like suns.  Underneath them I spread ranch dip.

Little A joined her sister for the morning at school again today.  She got two little elephant sandwiches, cashews for nibbling along with a couple of pecans, sun shaped strawberries and a mozzarella cheese stick cut for grass underneath.  In the small round bento, she also got leftover Annie’s mac & cheese with a cut up a Dominex brand vegetarian eggplant meatball which she loves.  Both kids drink ice water and get a pouch of Lifeway Kefir in their lunches.
