The Enormous Crocodile - Roald Dahl Blog Hop

It's Roald Dahl's Day (ok well tomorrow). BUT....Today I get to be part of a great blog hop to celebrate it. I love being in the blog hops to see what everyone comes up with. Can't wait to see them all.

I do remember reading Roald Dahl's  books as a child and the wonder of them making me smile and wanting to travel to the worlds I was reading about.  James and the Giant Peach was my absolute favorite, I kind of remember when they made the movie, being disappointed because it wasn't what I had imagined. I like that about books we can all read the same thing and all have slightly different ideas about what it "looks" like.  I can't wait till G wants and is able to read them by himself so he can share in my love.  I have read him a couple of stories and his favorite is The Enormous Crocodile.

For G's lunch today he gave me the task of coming up with the Enormous Crocodile.  I know I am not the best artist, but he seems to like what I can do, so I am giving it a shot.  Here is what I came up with. One of G's favorite parts is when the enormous crocodile pretends he is a tree, and then Humpy-Rumpy Hippopotamus rams into him.

The Enormous crocodile is made from a dinosaur cookie cutter that I kind of flattened to look more like the croc, its made from bread.  The leaves are cheddar cheese, and the coconuts are slices from a cheese stick.  Turkey is the ground.  On the side of my Easy Lunch box, I have more cheese stick and strawberries.  Carrots and celery with a bread (heel) Hippo (yes I think it a elephant, but G wont mind).  

I hope he likes it!  It is also story book day at school today and I did try to get him to dress up like the Enormous Crocodile, but he said no.... He decided to be Pigeon from Mo Willems, too cute... but that is a whole other blog entry... ha... back on task.

So do you want to see more Roald Dahl inspired lunches.  I do... Click here to go to Little  Miss Bento . or click on the button below.

The Truth about Bats

G and I have been reading the Magic School Bus story The Truth about Bats the past few night.  G loves bats for some reason, must have to do with Batman.  So today I thought he might like to have a bat for lunch.

Same old same old food choices, but he likes it so I don't like to mix it up too much.

Bread bat (he didn't want a sandwich today)  over a cookie (moon)  BAT spelled out in cheese, with the extra cheese in a cup with a bug drawn on it (because Bats eat Bugs)
Turkey, strawberries and carrots, complete the lunch box.  Yogurt and juice on the side.

As I said on Friday, pizza has been a big request and yes it seems like we always have it in my fridge.  We really don't eat that much pizza for dinner I promise

So what to do with yet another pizza request.... turn it into a monster, with a monster friend.

Monster pizza, monster cheese and cookie, carrots from G's garden, strawberries.

Pizza Frog

Hubby brought home pizza last night late, so I had leftovers for G this morning :)

He told me he wanted some pizza in his lunch, so I made a frog.

Pizza frog, with a cheddar frog over it, frog has a cheese tongue and some cheese flies for catching. 
Pepperoni, carrots, strawberries and a cookie hiding under the pepperoni.

Pasta Lunch

G wanted to have his leftover Pasta for lunch today... who am I to argue, makes my life a bit easier.  Normally I would just put it in his normal box and let him eat it cold, he never complains, but I thought I would use his star wars thermos to surprise him.

Pasta with sauce, in thermos.  In box, french bread, gummies, strawberries, cheese flowers, and carrots.

Fishing off a boat

One of the highlights for G this weekend is he got to fish off a boat (or as he like to call it a yacht, it really isn't that big)

So I tried to recreate it for his lunch today.....

cheese boat, fish and fishing line, extra cheese in cup.... bread waves.  Turkey in the cup (with the extra cheese) and a cookie under it.  Carrots and strawberries (surprise) in the other section of the Easy Lunch Box.  On the side he requested a go-gurt. Hope he can open it on his own.

Harlem Globetrotters Tour!

We can't wait to go in March!  My  boys are going to be so excited!  We have never seen them.. if you have let me know what I shoul...
