batty Lock & Lock bento

This is a pretty lame attempt at a Halloween bento. It was early and cold. That's all I have to say on the matter. ;-)

a little batty Lock & Lock bento box

Packed in a 4-square Lock & Lock box:
- ghoulish pickles (I never buy these kind because I think they look so ugly. My hubs got them and I have to say they do look very Halloweeny)
- pretzel thins (I realized after they sorta look like a cartoony skull or owl face) (Right??
- organic raspberries...probably our last raspberries of the year
- organic baby carrots

There is a spooky bat pick in with the raspberries to spice things up a bit. Ethan also took a cereal bar, granola bar and yogurt in his lunchbox to augment this lunch and snack. Since his lunch period is so early this year (10:30!) his appetite varies. He eats what he is hungry for during brunch lunch, and then has the rest during his afternoon snack time. And he always has milk in an insulated Thermos Funtainer, too. :)

Did you know that if you soak baby carrots in water for a couple minutes they are yummier and don't taste dried out on the outside? :) I love your blog there are so many cute ideas!

Loving your blog! This is my first year having to pack lunches and I"m getting lots of creative ideas from you. Thanks!

malindaeich84, I've tried that and it doesn't seem to work for me. Maybe I'm not soaking them long enough? I've even left carrots in water overnight (in the fridge) and they were still dry. Blah.

Chelsey, thanks for being here! :)

Where do you get your pretzel thins? They look delicious!

Hey Winnie! I buy them at Publix usually (though I've picked them up at Whole Foods too). At my store they tend to be stocked on little end cap displays near the deli rather than in the chip aisle with other pretzels. We love them. Extra crunchy! :)
