An insanely cute trio of bats are hanging out in Scout’s ’s LunchBots Duo lunch box for Choco Sammie Friday. Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks provide a perch for the bats, there’s a layer of pretzels underneath the (Trader Joe’s (TJ’s) Almond Cocoa Spread on Alpine Valley Organic Nine Grain Bread) sandwiches, too. Organic (O.) English cucumber bats fly beneath their slumbering mates. O. thyme and chocolate mint accent a landscape made up of black olives, orange baby bell peppers, mini heirloom tomatoes, and O. pomegranate seeds on a bed of O. baby spinach.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the newest toy, uh, tool from CuteZCute. Their first offering, Animal Friends is such a versatile set, and one of my favorites. Here’s a Frog Prince lunch I made with my Animal Friends set.The new Animal Palz set creates precious little sandwiches, stuffed sandwiches, or molded eggs in a variety of designs (lamb, bat, panda, panda with baby, and monkey). Seriously. How cute are those bats!?! I’m looking forward to test driving them with some eggs this weekend. You can get your own set of Animal Palz or Animal Friends through one of my favorite bento suppliers, Bento USA.
The small bat cutter is part of my Wilton Linzer Cutter set. Here’s a link to the larger bat. And, how perfectly cool (and just a little creepy) is this Lunchbox Love card!?! Scout was eager to share this info with the class…ah, eight year olds.
Not pictured is Scout’s little happy fellow fork, her cloth napkin, peppermint EO hand sanitizer and an insulated Klean Kanteen of ice water. I use two different ice packs to keep Scout’s lunch at a safe temperature. A sheet of Cryopak Flexible Ice Pack for Lunch Boxes went underneath her lunch, and a Kids Konserve Ice Pack and Sweat-Free Cover travels in the mesh pocket of the case. And, everything…and, I mean everything, gets labeled with one of Scout’s Mabel’s Labels.
