Day 296

Day 296 - This is one of D's favorites.  She has fun shaped ravioli, topped with herbed sun dried tomatoes, kiwi and a hollowed out apple with caramel flavored yogurt topped with caramel sauce and unsweetened coconut.

To make the caramel flavored yogurt I use 1 cup of my homemade yogurt and add a tablespoon of sugar free coffee flavoring syrup (like Torani).

Day 295

Day 295 - Thank God for left overs!  Quick and easy lunch today!  She will be eating spinach salad with grape tomatoes, carrot flowers and red pepper butterflies, left over grilled steak tips and string cheese ( I did stamp it but the light was so bad this morning it ended up getting blown out).  She also has chopped strawberries with a "Monstrawberry" on top, some kiwi and blackberries. It took less than 10 minutes to put this lunch together.  I love those days!

Day 292

Day 292 - D watched A Nightmare Before Christmas the other day and fell in love with Jack Skellington!  I knew that some of my BBF's (Bento Blogging Friends) had made a Jack lunch so I went looking for inspiration.

D saw this lunch from Cristi at Bento On Better Lunches and was quite impressed!  Mine is not nearly as cute!  LOL

Tracie at Lunch, Snack And Sninner made hers for the Halloween Blog Hop.  I love how she used contrasting bread!

Karen from What's In Our Lunch Bags also made hers for the blog hop.  I have to be honest...the spider freaks me out a bit!  LOL

Shannon at What's For Lunch At Our House made this one that was featured on Disney's Family.Com!

So D's lunch features a Dark Chocolate PB Jack sandwich, some dark chocolate covered wafer cookies decorated with Wilton Icing Writer, grape tomatoes, string cheese, orange jack o' lantern and some Chobani Champions Very Berry yogurt.  After I took the picture I remembered that I had some fresh raspberries in the fridge so I put them on top of the yogurt as well.

Day 271

I was just looking through my blog stuff and saw that I had some posts that didn't get posted!

Day 290

Day 290 - Lunch meat "sushi", fresh mozarella pearls, yogurt parfait, grape tomatoes, apple crisp with a sugar star and grapes.

Day 277

Day 277 - This is probably not the most healthy lunch I have ever packed but it's what I had in my fridge!  D saw the  guitar (swizzle sticks) picks and asked me to make her a "Rock N Roll" lunch.  So today she has "cheeseburgers" on a stick!  I cooked 2 hamburgers as I normally would then I used a small round cookie cutter to cut out circles.  I toasted the bread and cut them out the same way.  I used my layered cheese and some tomato slices.  She also has some homemade yogurt with mixed berries and a small piece of yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
