I’ve been falling behind a bit with sharing my lunches recently, so today I’m going to share four from last week all at once. These lunches are all Halloween themed – Small Child has been loving his Halloween lunches this month! This is his last week at school before our half term begins, so I’m making the most of all the fun themes that Halloween supplies for my inspiration!
In the first of today’s lunches, Small Child had an eclectic mix of bits and pieces. I tried flaked honey-roasted salmon as a lunch box food for the first time, which had a mixed reaction from him. He said he wasn’t too keen on it, but he ate it all, so it can’t have been that bad! He also had a cheese string, cut in half and decorated with eye picks to make funny monsters (many thanks to The Boy and Me for this fab idea!), a Frankenstein Babybel, Ritz crackers in a silicone cup, raw red pepper sticks and carrot pumpkins, a celementine, broken into segments and some blueberries. I added cat and frog fork picks to the salmon, a spider ring to the fruit, and finished the lunch off with some rainbow yoghurt covered raisins.
The second lunch was very simple, with a hard boiled egg moulded into a cute bat using the CuteZcute Animal Palz Set being a highlight. As well as the egg, which I popped into an orange silicone cup, this lunch was made up of bread sticks, cucumber chunks, an orange mini pepper cut into rings, red and green grapes and some organic blueberry yoghurt, topped with chocolate sprinkles (I thought the sprinkles could be spiders legs!). I decorated the lunch with a toy spider, bat cupcake pick and spider web cupcake ring, and finished it off with a treat of some orange flavoured chocolate buttons.
The third lunch made use of some leftovers (my favourite kind of lunch!). I always make pizza whirl rolls from any leftover dough when I make home-made pizza (making home-made pizza is a necessity in our house, as Mr Amazing can’t eat normal pizza due to being dairy free), and pop any spare in the freezer for lunches. I take them out of the freezer to defrost the night before they are needed so they are ready for a minimal-effort lunch! For this lunch, I decorated the rolls with eyeball cupcake rings. On the side I packed rolls of ham, decorated with a Frankenstein cupcake ring, raw sugar snap peas (under the carrots) and carrot disks, decorated with a monster hand pick, and chunks of melon with blueberries, decorated with eyeball picks. I finished the lunch off with a jelly sweet eyeball, much to Small Child’s delight!
Last but not least an owl themed lunch! This lunch had a cream cheese and ham sandwich, shaped into an owl (I’ll be sharing the ‘how to’ for this owl sandwich design in tomorrow’s post, along with lots of other fun Halloween sandwiches!), some twiglets, a purple carrot, cut into disks and topped with a bat pick, and some red grapes, topped with a black cat pick.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Halloween lunches so far, have you made any fun food for Halloween yet?
