5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate...
Also are rosemary bread, raisins, yogurt with granola and blueberries.
For my son, I had made a tombstone the other day when I made the rosemary bread, and used extra rosemary to spell R.I.P which was my son's clever idea. The 'grave flowers' (it needed some color) are cut from honeycrisp apples which don't brown as easily (Thank you Michelle for that tip).
If my son's lunches seem to be getting skimpier, it is due to the new fruit bar at school. They have added a free, fresh fruit bar to the lunchroom. Both bringers and buyers can help themselves to the fresh fruit. I am sure it is not organic, but right now I am content with him having a fresh piece of fruit in addition to his lunch brought from home!
I am so grateful that the Halloween lunched hit when they did - he has not asked to buy his lunch since! I just need to keep the momentum going AFTER Halloween!
