Frightful Fall Hop

Thank goodness for the Bento Bloggers and Friends' Frightful Fall Blog Hop to inspire me to finally make my first Halloween lunch of the season! Don't know what took me so long because I certainly had fun makin' this one, especially since I got to try out a couple new toys: the versatile and really nifty CuteZcute Mini Pocket Sandwich Maker and Egg Mold Kit - Animal Palz (see affiliate link below to get one of your very own!) and this way cool cupcake spider stand. Woo hoo! Of course I had to include the cute little pumpkins the girls got with my parents at Trader Joe's the other day. They took a Sharpie to them and had some fun. :)

So without further ado, here it is!

In this lunch:
  1. Bat Sandwich with Applegate Ham, Muenster Cheese and Genoa Salami on Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat Bread
  2. Hard Boiled Vampire Bat Egg (using the new CuteZcute Mini Pocket Sandwich Maker and Egg Mold Kit - Animal Palz)
  3. Utz Halloween Pretzels - Made in a Nut-Free Facility - woo hoo!
  4. Carrot Chips and a Sugar Snap Pea from Trader Joe's
  5. Fresh Organic Raspberries
  6. Fage 2% Yogurt with Wilton's Spider Sprinkles
  7. Chocolate Mousse Filled Spider Cupcake - to be eaten when they get home from school :)
  8. Organic Valley Milk Box
FYI: this is the first molded hard-boiled egg I've ever made and I can't believe how easy it was using my new toy! And look how awesome it turned out (if I do say so myself - hahaha!) :)

Here's a close-up of that spider cupcake. Bought the cupcake stand on clearance at Target last year. Yeah!
