PostHeaderIcon Penguin and panda packed lunches

I spent 7 hours yesterday prepping for painting and painting. We painted 3 rooms in that time, plus I did 2 ceilings. Dinner last night was a sign of sheer brilliance – we had vegetarian chili in the crock pot. Lunches today are pretty simple after all that work last night.

photo 3G2’s go-to lunch subject is penguins. I have a few different penguin food picks, and a few penguin cookie cutters, so I can mix it up a bit. Today, in her Easy Lunchbox she has strawberries in the top left compartment with the word YUM spelled out with alphabet food picks. At the bottom left are a pink penguin and a blue fish food picks stuck in two  Enjoy Life chocolate brownie cookies. In the large section at the right is one silicone cup with a blue penguin food pick and a fish stuck into Havarti cheese with dill. Another silicone cup has penguin-shaped MOMables-inspired gf crackers with detailing done with food-safe markers. I also used fish and penguin shaped cookie cutters to cut provolone cheese, plus I used food-safe markers for the details. Ta da! A penguin lunch that was put together in under 15 minutes.

photo 1G1’s go-to lunch is pandas. I have several different panda cutters, and that makes creating panda lunches really easy. Some days I need easy! At left G1 has the top of her Totoro Bento Box packed with goodies. She has two Enjoy Life chocolate brownie cookies with two different panda food picks. She also has a homemade flower  chocolate lollipop, and in a Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container she has strawberries with more pandas. In the bottom section at right she has a panda cut out of tofu using the CuteZCute animal friends cutter and two little panda tofu. She also has a Thermos filled with tomato soup to help keep her warm on this cold day.
