Good morning, and welcome to another #FunFoodFriday! Today has been a very exciting day so far due to an amazing solar eclipse that took place in our part of the world this morning. Very sadly for us we had heavy cloud cover in our area so we couldn’t see a thing, but I know that a lot of people had better luck elsewhere in the UK so hopefully lots of you saw the eclipse. Small Child has been learning all about it school so for today’s packed lunch I made him a special solar eclipse bento to celebrate!
As I mentioned above, today is also #FunFoodFriday, so as usual, this post contains my Friday linky. If you’ve written any foodie posts, whether it be children’s meals, creative cakes, lovely lunches or a delicious recipe you’ve blogged, do feel free to join in and add your link at the bottom of the post. I try to comment on and tweet every post that’s linked up over the course of the week and I pin them all to my special Fun Food Friday Pinterest board too.
To make Small Child’s solar eclipse bento lunch, I started by creating some fun eclipse sandwiches. I used two sizes of my nesting circle cutters to make these, cutting circles from two kinds of bread and slotting them together to form the top layer of each sandwich. The sandwiches were filled with slices of roast beef, which I also cut into circles before adding to the sandwiches. On the side I packed slices of cucumber with circles cut from them to represent the eclipse, black grapes topped with a few star shaped bento picks to represent the dark sky, a Babybel cheese with an eclipse cut from the wax using a round mini bento cutter and some raisins, topped with a yellow polka dot bento pick to represent the sun. This lunch was packed in our Yumbox Panino bento box.
