Halloween Lunch 2013

Tomorrow is Halloween and here's only my second Halloween lunch of year. The girls have been tracked out so I haven't been packing lunches much, but I thought it would be fun to put their lunches in our EasyLunchboxes just for fun, even though they were eating at home.


Pin It
In this lunch:
  1. 365 Organic Cheese Tortellini from Whole Foods with a dash of Bertolli's Organic Garlic, Olive Oil Spaghetti Sauce with a sprinkling of Trader Joe's Shaved Grana Padano Parmesan
  2. Trader Joe's Frozen Organic Peas, cooked with a dash of salt
  3. Roasted Pumpkin Seeds from last night's pumpkin carving remains
  4. Delmonte canned cooked carrots
  5. Ghost sugar cookie lovingly made by Nana


The girls enjoyed their lunch and most all of it was finished except for Big Sis' pumpkin seeds. She said she just wasn't in the mood. Oh well.


Speaking of pumpkin seeds... We went out to get our pumpkins last night - a little later than we would have liked, but we were glad to get it done just the same. Lucky for us, Nana was in town to enjoy the adventure with us!


The girls wanted to show me which pumpkins they wanted. haha! Sorry, Charlies, no giant pumpkins for you! :)


Tadaaaaa! The finished products. Big Sis' (of her own design) is on the left, followed by mine (I cheated and used a template), Little Sis follows (she chose a giant white pumpkin and put this original design on hers) and Daddy's is on the far right. He cheated too, but ain't it wicked? ;) What EVER did we do w/o those pumpkin carving kits that make cool pumpkins come so easily. And BIG kudos to Nana who somehow ended up with task of hallowing out Little Sis' giant white pumpkin which was about 3 inches thick. Whoa. And really juicy. Yuck! Thanks Nana!


I was gonna fight the urge to make pumpkin seeds 'cause I just didn't have the time to mess with 'em, but alas, the girls talked me into it, so I used Allrecipes' Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe to make this yummy little snack.


Lastly, here's a preview of the girls' costumes from their Trunk or Treat event at school this past weekend. Every day I kept asking Big Sis if she still wanted to be Jason for Halloween and every day she answered yes. Why did she have to be so resolute about a costume for the first time in her life? And she kept asking me for a chainsaw (we've since learned that Jason actually wields a machete!) What happened to my sweet little girl? *sigh*

At least Little Sis wanted to be ghost - girl ghost actually, but I didn't have time to make a bow. lol.

What will you and your guys be dressing  up as this Halloween?That's it! Have a safe and fun Halloween!
