kids halloween lunch
Week 6: Jack O' Lanterns.  This weekend I was gone for work from Thursday through Sunday at midnight, so this Monday's lunch isn't as elaborate as usual.  I had to plan ahead of time and include stuff that would keep so I could just put it together Monday morning.

We have three apple trees in our backyard, so we have been drying apples.  I used these dried apples for the ground since they sort of look like dried leaves and my daughter loves them.  The background is romaine lettuce.

For the Jack O' Lantern I sort of cheated because of time.  I used a cookie cutter to cut out the shape of a pumpkin from bread, meat, and cheese.  I then put it all together to form a sandwich with the cheese on top.  I then cut the eyes, nose, and mouth out of black olives.

For the side torches I used pretzel sticks.  The fire part is made out of fruit roll up.  I cut a piece off the whole roll up then cut strips down most of one side to create the fringe.  After that I rolled it onto the pretzel stick.  It makes a good sweet and salty snack.

As always, let me know what you think and thanks for checking out my blog.  Remember to leave comments here or follow Lunchbox Dad on Twitter or Pinterest.
