Is your house in full mail watch? Everyday a new catalog with fabulous costumes to pick from, the endless discussions of what to be, the bargaining that comes with sisters; should we match, should we have a theme... Halloween is officially in full swing at Chez Peterson. Not to worry, I celebrate only one holiday at a time. There will be no Christmas lunches until December 1st!
I will however, spend all of this month focusing mostly on ghoulishly good lunches. It will probably be frightening, the amount of different Halloween cutters I have. These lunches could possibly haunt your every waking hour with their cuteness. I'll stop, I know your probably all groaning anyway. Yes, I am that corny; candy corny that is!
This little lunch is just a kick off. I've experimented with making my own "jello jigglers", LiLi has already informed me they are "bisgusting" and she will only allow me to pack her one because her friends will think it's cool. GiGi is not as picky with the "shivering" food and is enthusiastic about them.
Lunch includes; Brains and Blood (spaghetti and sauce), Monster Finger chicken strips, Jacks and Bats pretzels, Jack-O-Lantern bell peppers and some Goblin Eye grapes...grape juice jigglers and ghostly marshmallows round out lunch. They'll each have Blood red 100% juice fruit punch. The beauty of Halloween lunches is that they tell their own story, your kiddos will have as much fun eating them as they do deciding what each item is!
For snack they took Pirates Booty and Cliff Kids fruit snacks.
