Oh my goodness, tomorrow is Halloween! What is your favorite candy? Skittles are my guilty pleasure. A-chan is totally ready to go trick or treating. She wants me to join her in the candy gathering extravaganza and so far doesn't believe that I'm too old to trick or treat. Since I haven't had a chance to post a lot of Halloween bentos, I'm putting up two at once today.
In the Mummy bento: Rice, a cherry tomato, grapes, sauteed squash, checkered apple, carrot hearts, teriyaki tofu and vegetables.
The Mummies were so much fun to make. Wrapping and layering the provolone cheese over the nori was pretty cool. The hearts were cut from apple peel and the line of black sesame seeds were placed meticulously with out kitty cat thief looking on in fascination. Luckily I have learned some tricks to keep Stripey the kitty thief from stealing broccoli out of the bentos in the morning!
In the Spider bento: Two cheese and mayo sandwich balls, cucumber spider webs, orange slices, strawberries and steamed broccoli.
A-chan's favorite thing about this bento were the spider's huge eyes. They were cut from provolone cheese and nori. The spiders' legs were fried spaghetti noodles.
