Even though I didn't have to work until the afternoon I was super excited to get started on this lunch the night before. Monstro asked for a "Cool Lunch" (aka Lunchables) and I told him that I'd make him a Mommy Love Cool Lunch. So he picked out the crackers (reduced fat Wheat Thins?!?! Weird!), cookies, meat and cheese. He even got to be a smarty-pants and prove to me that some Lunchables do indeed come with Oreos. Then I let him pick out what shape the meat and cheese would be cut. He chose the question marks which made it a little challenging to fit the Halloween theme in there! But! I did it!
A creepy Horned Owl hoots on top of his pile of beans (black and pinto mixed). I just free-handed the shape with a knife and added cheese wings and a nori face. The tomato looked like a tiny fall gourd so I put that in and after I took the picture I remembered that we have scarlet runner beans that are a very Halloween-y shade of purple so I added those in too. I stamped the "WHO" out of cheese and added it to a section of green pepper from our trip to Hilltop Gardens. The little monkey is filled with pineapple. His crackers and his Oreo (in a Trick-or-Treat cupcake cup of course!) are in the top mesh part of a sandwich box.
