The “Too cute to spook!” Bentos.

My tiny princesses have been BEGGING asking politely for me to make them some Halloween lunches. I wanted to try to make it to the store so that I could grant this request a little easier, but alas I never made it. So, I had to work with what was on hand. I used to make hair bows for my girls (and for sale) and I remembered that I had some Halloween cupcake rings that I used to use for bow centers. Most of them already had the ring part snapped off, but I did manage to find a few still in tact! (BONUS) I picked up the pumpkin food picks last week at the dollar store and the spider and pumpkin silicone cups were one of the first items I ever added to my Bento making stash. The sprinkles in the pudding were meticulously picked out of a bottle of primary color sprinkles. ;) Now for the best part (and what they told me was the yummiest part of their lunch) The homemade ghost and black cat garlic bread/croutons. While browsing around the world wide web I have come across many Bento blogs. They are AHHHMAZING!! I mean truly an inspiration! Enter Another Lunch! This quickly became a favorite read! Her writing style is great and her lunches are fantastic! There are even recipes and tons of other information! Check out THIS post for the crouton recipe. They are delicious! We added a tiny bit of shredded parmesan to ours and it was sooo good!!!

Tiny princess A and K’s lunch 10/11/12

  1. Adorable Halloween themes! I like that you used the cups and rings in a way that most people don't. Very creative.
