Let's get this (Halloween) party started! I feel like I've been mentally preparing for Halloween bentos for months now, and it's hard to believe it's already time to start churning them out!
In our nifty PlanetBox we have:
- the Great Pumpkin grilled cheese sandwich
- baby carrots and ghoul sauce (otherwise known as ranch)
- grapes on jack-o-lantern bento picks
- goblin finger (better known as a pickle spear)
- icing decoration for a treat
The grilled cheese sandwich was cooled to room temp before putting in the PlanetBox. This keeps moisture from forming inside the container and getting soggy. Ethan is on the fence on whether he likes a not-warm grilled cheese. I think if I offered them more often he would decide quickly that he doesn't care for it. But as it is I rarely have the time to make a grilled cheese in the morning so he is pretty happy to see it appear from time to time.
The little jack-o-lantern in the middle treat section is an icing decoration. Ethan has called those things "cupcake cookies" since he could first talk. He just loves those things. I think they are icky, but for Halloween I overlook "ick". :)
