Bento Lunch, Fun at School

Halloween Themed School Bento Lunch

It’s the last week of October which can only mean that preparations for Halloween is on a roll. We prepared some school lunches to celebrate this month’s festivities.

Scary Bat Lunch

I have been using a lot of nori sheets to add fun in Kuya V’s school lunch. For our first lunch I cut out a bat out of a single nori sheet, placed on top a fried rice and use ketchup for the eyes. We then paired it with deli meat designed with some wakame seaweed and lettuce, pretzel sticks, orange slices and chocolate.

Ghost and Scary Cat Pizza

I use a Halloween themed cookie cutter for this lunch. Get a piece of bread and flatten it with a rolling pin then use your cookie cutter to get the shape you want. Spread a pizza sauce, it can be store bought or left over pasta sauce or a mix of ketchup + sugar + pepper + grated carrots then top it mozzarella cheese. Toast bread on your oven or frying pan till cheese completely melted. Cut out eyes and mouth for nori sheets or use olives.

Pizza was paired with watermelon balls, grapes, pretzels and jelly belly candies.

Spooky Owl Rice

Once again nori sheets played a big role to turn our simple rice meal to something fun. Simple shape your rice to an owl, you can use a cut out paper or cookie cutter as a guide to make your owl and use nori sheet cut-out for the eyes, ears, mouth and tummy. This was paired with our homemade chicken nuggets, baby carrots, grapes and ketchup.

Mummy Turkey Dog

We have a turkey hotdog wrapped in puff pastry strip to look like a mummy. All you have to do is flatten your puff pastry to about a quarter inch then cut into strips then just wrap it around your hotdog making sure you leave a space for us to draw the eyes, bake for 15 minutes and you’re done. Our Mummy Turekey Dog was packed with Bacon Broccoli Quiche, Zespri Kiwi and Strawberry mix with chia seeds, ketchup and chocolate.
