PostHeaderIcon A Second Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

March 2 was Dr. Seuss‘s birthday, and because that was a Sunday I sent my girls to school with Dr. Seuss lunches on Friday and today. Here are two very similar lunches for two very different girls.

photo 1G2 has a Cat in the Hat themed lunch. I know that the cat from the CuteZCute Animal Friends cutter isn’t exactly like the Cat in the Hat, but it’s a cat and I was tired. In her Easy Lunchbox G2 has MOMables-inspired gf crackers in one silicone cup, and Havarti with Dill cheese in another cup. Stuck inside the cheese are alphabet food picks spelling out Cat and Hat. Below the cheese and crackers are a CuteZCute cat and a Cat in the Hat hat, details drawn with food-safe markers. At the top right section she has 2 macaroons and a Glutino chocolate wafer. At the bottom right is a container of diced peaches in juice. I was so busy painting over the weekend that I forgot to buy fresh fruit, so she has canned fruit. Whoops! She also has a Lunchbox Love note to make her smile.

 

photo 2G1 also has a bento with a Cat in the Hat theme. She has tomato soup in her Thermos, and other goodies in her Totoro Bento Box. In the top section at the top left she has a Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container with sliced oranges (we call them orange smiles) and a silicone cup with chocolate macaroons and a chocolate wafer. In the bottom section is a CuteZCute cat and a Cat in the Hat hat I decorated using food-safe markers. G1 also has a Lunchbox Love note to give her a boost half-way through her day.

PostHeaderIcon Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

March 2 is Dr. Seuss‘s birthday. Sadly, that’s a Sunday, so not a day for packing bentos. However, on the plus side, I can pack Dr. Seuss bentos today and on Monday, celebrating his birthday on two days rather than just on one! I have been very busy painting all the rooms in our new house, so I didn’t have a lot of time, and these were very simple lunches.

Dr SeussG2 has a simple Dr. Seuss theme in her Easy Lunchbox. G2 was just saying “One fish Two fish Red fish Blue fish” over and over the other day, so I added two mozzarella fish and a Cat in the Hat hat to her slice of leftover gf pizza in the large section of her bento. Just in case my intention wasn’t clear, I used a heart cookie cutter with the mozzarella cheese and wrote Dr. Seuss’s name on it with food-safe markers. I also added some polka dot food picks to the grapes at the top right, because they reminded me of some of the funny plants in the Seussical worlds. She has some Glutino chocolate wafers in the section at the bottom right. I need to bake cookies this weekend – this past weekend was too busy with painting to do any baking. We’re running really low on baked goods!

 

1 fish 2 fish red fish blue fishG3 has another One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish themed lunch in her Totoro Bento Box, and tomato soup in her Thermos to keep her warm on this very cold day. In the top section of the bento she has Glutino chocolate wafers in a silicone cup. In a Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container she has green grapes with the word FISH written out of alphabet food picks. In the bottom section she has One fish, Two fish (with the word TWO in alphabet picks), Red fish, Blue fish (with the word BLUE in alphabet picks) tofu. I also made a Cat in the Hat hat and a heart to hold the word blue. The coloring is done with food-safe markers and food coloring.
