The Kid's wanted nothing but Sunbutter and banana sandwiches lately, so I was thrilled to make a happy haunted lunch from all these great Halloween ideas I've filed away. To make the mummy, I saved a little dough from a batch of biscuits, rolled it into a "snake," wrapped up a turkey dog then baked it for 10 minutes at 350F the night before. The next morning, I added these ingenious edible googly eyes that I've been dying to try ever since I first saw them at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories over a year ago. (I found gelatin free vegan capsules at my local health food store.)
The jack o'lantern is a carved tangerine with black grapes stuffed inside. Rounding things out (visually if not nutritionally) are a skeleton cookie and graham cracker Bug Bites, each one handcrafted with love by the Keebler elves. Alongside are the usual juice/water mixture and some highly reflective monster stickers.
I'm sending this wicked good lunch to Coffee & Vanilla for Margot's lovely Wholesome Lunchbox event. Don't miss her round up on the 15th of each month!
