Autumn is rolling up fast here! The mornings are dark and cool longer, and racoons have begun theiving in my henhouse. Locking it up tight to keep those pests out!
Beaker and Bean are starting to count down the days until Halloween, and I'm eyeballing my favorite spooky bento gear already. September is barely half over, but I'm so ready for October! In the meantime, we're making do with more pirate lunches for Beaker.
I love these little bento dishes from BentoUSA. They're small and compact, great for little tummies or packing into smaller lunch tins.
In this lunch:
Van's gluten-free cheese crackers
Babybel mini cheese wheel
gluten free carrot mini cupcake
gluten free granola
Tiny pirate in his little boat, surrounded by golden crunchy 'coins'.
A pirate raft, with carrot planks and ham rolls.
Tasty pirate parfait. The fruit and yogurt thawed while in his snack tin, so when snack time rolled around it was still frozen just enough to taste like a dessert, but thawed enough to be easy to eat with a spoon. I froze Greek yogurt in a shaped silicone ice cube tray to get the fun skull-and-crossbones shape with a good kick of protein to keep my little guy going through the long day.
The small dishes pack up perfectly inside this cute Jake and the Neverland Pirates lunchbox and matching snack tin!
