Lemony Snickety Lunch

Fridays both girls are home, no preschool, so I decided that we'd run some errands then snuggle on the couch and watch a movie - Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which we own but haven't watched since Birdie was a baby - and I made a muffin tin lunch to go with it:

Their tins contained lemonade, a lemon wafer cookie (cut in half, because 2 cookies are better than 1), lemon yogurt,  tomatoes and spaghetti noodles for "pasta puttanesca", and ham "shrieking eels". I made the lunch before we watched the movie, and it wasn't until we reached the scene with Aunt Josephine and the deadly leeches that I realized I had gotten mixed up, that shrieking eels were from another movie, The Princess Bride! Oops!  The girls didn't notice, being only 2½ and 5, but I felt a bit silly anyways, heheh.

This picture of Birdie at about age 1½ has always made me think of the baby Sunny from the movie  - if you've seen it you'll know what I mean :)

Bento of the Week

As for the school aged sproutlets' lunches, today is pizza day at the elementary schools, so I only had to make a sandwich for Pickle. I decided to make him "pizza" too ;) The bottom slice of bread is wheat, spread with peanut butter, then topped with the end piece from a loaf of white, crust side down, as the cheese. I cut some circles out of it and flipped them crust side up to look like pepperoni. I also used some of the end piece of crust as the pizza crust. Pickle laughed when he saw it. I gave him extra yogurt since I trimmed the sandwich to a triangle.

Happy Friday!
