More mummies for lunch. I brainstorm A's lunches the night before so that I won't have to use my brain too heavily in the wee hours of the morning. I don't work super well before dawn.
Anyways my brainstorm for today's bento got a little out of control. I have so few bento days remaining before Halloween but so many yummy ideas I want to try out before it passes! Poor A has had some intimidating lunches as a result. Today's had way too much food in it (especially for a rainy day when she wasn't able to run and play outside before she ate... which also happened to be a "bread and milk" day!), but she did enjoy it anyway. I have a feeling we'll have a bento picnic this weekend so that I can have another extra bento day. :)
On the right side of her box, she had hot dog mummies made with half cheese dogs and strips of crescent roll dough. A's not big on condiments so I just poked "eyes" into the dogs before I baked them. They didn't turn out super defined but A got the point anyway. She loves the Monster Halloween Backyardigans, so she knows a "mummy king" when she sees one! The mummies were propped up on a few roasted chickpeas so as to fill in some of the extra space.
