Easy Halloween Lunch

I was way too tired to blog last night.  Daddy and I ran the Hershey Half Marathon yesterday morning and then drove home to Pittsburgh, got stuck in some crazy traffic and finally made it to our house just before it was time to put the kids to bed.  Not to worry, I made lunches for the girls but didn't take photos.  Nothing too fancy but still made with love.  Tonight, I'm still a bit sleepy but had enough energy to muster up some creativity.  These lunches are an easy way to make something simple but extra fun by using a few tools.
Our main entree is a salami and cheese sandwich.  We used a cookie cutter to make the pumpkin shape and our food safe markers to embellish it.

Our vegetable side is cucumber slices and shredded carrots.  These are in a silicone cupcake liner and have a spider and witch ring attached.

Our fruit side is kiwi slices and fresh raspberries.  We added a jack-o-lantern pick to them.

Finally, our dairy/dessert is vanilla yogurt with some Halloween sprinkles.

Items used to make this lunch:
Food Decorating Pick 3D Jack O Lantern Pumpkin


  1. I love putting some fun themed sprinkles on plain yogurt! Very cute. You are lucky that you are able to pack the same lunch for both kids, I hear a lot of picky have uber picky kids that don't allow for that.

  2. I love how pretty the kiwi and raspberries look! I wish so much that I could get my girls to enjoy different types of fruit. My oldest only likes apples and for my youngest it's only bananas and pineapple. I'll have to keep trying. Awesome lunches as usual!!
