Spooktacular Healthy Kidlet Lunches

As Halloween is inching closer and closer, I have more spooktacular, healthy, kidlet lunches, as promised. Tonight at dinner we where having carrot sticks and Croque Monsier (a specialty of the hubbies) and my little guy came up with this concoction...

ZOMBIE FINGERS 

He just started poking the carrots into the bread and then used the ketchup for blood. Ha Ha Ha, I love it!!! I guess I have made him a few wacky lunches in his day ;) So of all the lunches that have ever come out of our kitchen, this is by far my favorite! Okay, enough gushing about my totally awesome little man ;), and onto more lunches!

BLOODY DEVILED EGGS 
This cute little lunch was made with an ordinary deviled egg recipe, egg yokes and mayo, and some green and red food colouring. I made the egg yoke mixture and added the green food coloring and cut off the corner of a Ziploc bag to pipe it back into the egg whites. I used red food colouring and a toothpick to create the eyeball 'veins' on the egg white and finished it off with a couple black olives. To create the rest of the face I used a carrot and carved some nostrils into the sides and some halved cherry tomatoes. I used mayo under all of the pieces to secure them for their travel to school.

MONSTERS INC. - MIKE WACHOWSKI SANDWICH 
This one is another super simple one and super cute. To make Mike Wackowski from Monsters Inc., you need two circle shaped cookie cutters or round objects you can use as a cookie cutter. I think I used a jar lid for the shape of Mike's face. First cut your top and bottom out and then assemble any kind of sandwich you like in between.  Cut a smaller circle out of cheese and place in the area of your monsters eye. Use the crust of the bread to cut two triangles for his ears and a crescent shape for his eyebrow. Attach with mayo or peanut butter, anything sticky that goes with the inside of your sandwich. Next cut some teeth shape from a piece of cheese and attach near his mouth area. Lastly, get your edible markers in black and green and draw Mike's pupil and iris and colour your mouth piece green. All done!

VAMPIRE TORTILLA TEETH
 And lastly, Vampire teeth and bat. Again, create any type of sandwich you like but use tortillas as your bread. I used a vampire teeth cookie cutter and a bat cookie cutter and drew the details on with the ever so trusty edible markers. Add a toothpick tomb stone and viola, yet another spooktacular lunch ;) Happy Haunting, more to come next week.
