Christmas Lunch and Holiday Hop with Friends

I'm joining my bento blogger friends for another fun hop (you hop from one blog to another.) This is week 2 of 3 of the Holiday Hop. Our bento circle of friends is growing so we thought we'd split into 3 smaller hops. (Check out Holiday Hop Week 1 )  Miss C's lunch: Cucumber Christmas Tree with Carrot  Ornaments , ranch in a  Gift , cheese  Star and a peanut butter  Snowman  Sandwich  with caramel marshmallow hat and blackberries. (packed in less than 15 minutes using a 2-tiered red bento box ) Check out Bento Days below and hop around to see other  Holiday/Christmas lunch inspirations.

Sweet Cupcake Sandwich

Miss C's lunch: Ham and cheese sandwich w/veggie straws (with some mini M&Ms) applesauce w/heart and strawberries I used the cupcake cutter in the the Lunch Punch Sweet Set   using wheat and white bread for contrast.  To make the heart on the applesauce, set a cookie cutter on top of the applesauce and spoon in some colored applesauce then gently lift the cutter up. The idea came from one of my Bento Blogger Friends , I honestly can't remember which one, but check all of them out... click here !

Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

Miss C had a field trip to the pumpkin patch last month. A disposable sack lunch was required. I used a container I saved from leftovers from a restaurant. She requested 2 PBJ sandwiches (must be going through a growth spurt.) I used the CuteZCute pig cutter and a pumpkin cookie cutter. Angry Birds graham crackers, a clementine, cheese stick and a candy from her Halloween stash rounded out this lunch.
