October 22 - 25 lunches

We're continuing our Halloween spirit this week. Its really fun watching a 3 and 5 year old with limited Halloween movie and story experience try to think up enough characters to fill these lunches.

Monday - Witches Lunch - PB&J Witch and black cat. A witch's hat in the cucumbers, and R.I.P. cantaloup grave.

Tuesday - Turkey and cheese Werewolves! Both monkeys agreed on this one. I used the tops of the candy corn as teeth and some left over turkey from the sandwich. Babybel and cantaloup full moons have him going nuts.

Wednesday - Plants vs. Zombies - A favorite game around here for years now, and green monkey requested zombies so this cone-head came to mind. I had also been dying to try to get them to eat tortilla wraps just to have sandwich options.This is the spinach and herb tortilla from Mission. with turkey and monterrey cheese, American cheese cone, and babybel cheese sun. I cut one cucumber into a pea shooter and diced the leftover as peas.

 Thursday - We read Boo on the Loose by RH Disney before bed Wednesday night, both monkeys thought it would be awesome to do a Monsters Inc. lunch. So I made another turkey and cheese tortilla sandwich and used a half of a babybel cheese for his eye and cheese teeth. I made Boo in her costume using a marshmallow in the strawberries and fruit twists for her pigtails. I even found a monster carrot in the bag so of course that got served today. It was only until after I sent them off to school that I realized I forgot horns on Mike, but the monkeys didn't notice either so shh our little secret ;)

Thank you for taking time to look at my blog and especially the comments. I'm so glad to be a part of such a creative blogger community.
