St. Patrick's Day Bento and another Blog Hop

Tuesday, March 13, 2012





Later this week, it'll be my husband's second birthday... Okay, not really... but his name is Patrick. :) And I think he's like .0025% Irish or something. And he's a saint. Okay, not really... but at least he has to deal with me so that makes him a saint in my eyes (and to anyone else that know me! ha!).  Anyway...

Here was C's lunch on Monday:
Mini shamrock sandwich bites, shamrock green pepper, 
carrots with ranch and cheese stick
rainbow fruit mini kabobs, key lime yogurt, 
and some Lucky Charms marshmallows
in an EasyLunchbox 

Now I have a big collection of cookie cutters. In fact, I have 4 shoe boxes full of cookie cutters. It could be 5 or 6 even, as I have cutters that I keep in their original boxes. But I don't have any St. Patrick's Day related cookie cutters. So I used a mini heart cookie cutter and arranged them in a circle. Voila! a shamrock!  

We're doing the St. Pat's Day blog hop a few days early, so you can sort through different ideas and maybe do one for Friday or Saturday lunch! Saturday night will be corned beef and cabbage at our house of course! :)


Without further ado, you guys gotta check out Keitha's St. Patrick's Day lunch. (and the next blog, and the next one, then the next one, and so forth)

I can't wait for Saturday. I love corned beef and cabbage!  Do you?

Love the pepper "butt" shamrock!
I finally found a shamrock cutter, but it was from a bento set! Actually, I think the Pampered Chef mini cutters set has one... and a hot pepper-shaped cutter!
