Fall is one of my favorite time of year. First comes Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas. It just keeps getting better. I’d been feeling like I was in a bit of rut with lunches lately, and this change of season has been just the thing to kick me into high gear again.
I have a leaf cookie cutter that I break out this time every year. (Well, this is only the second year, but that’s as long as I’ve been doing this.)
I’m also starting to work on some Halloween-themed lunches.
I have a bat cookie cutter that’s great for garnishing. I’m trying to work out other Halloween shapes I can make and what foods would work best. This week I came up with a hummus and pretzel stick spider.
Here are the other lunches that rounded out the rest of the week. I used a lot of the same elements (carrots, cucumbers, green and red peppers) in several different ways.
The pepper, carrot, cucumber, hummus and bananas also made an appearance at the toddler playgroup this week.
I’m still thinking about changing the way I identify my weekly food round-ups. Do you like “Food on the Go” better than “Other Morsels”? Do you have any other suggestions?
