Tasty Tuesday

Today I am starting a new blog feature on Mama Hen Jenn called Tasty Tuesdays where I will share a food related post.  I am hopeful that many of them will feature bento box style lunches.  I have been making bento lunches for my children this school year.  I know -- it seems silly since 3 out of the 4 children are homeschooled.  Why would I pack them a lunch?  Well, if I don't plan a lunch for them, they eat yogurt or PB&J every. single. day.  No variety ever.  Ever.  Also, they really REALLY like it when I make them a lunch.  I think it makes them feel special. 

So here is a lunch from last week.
This little guy is made from a ham and cheese sandwich made on a hamburger bun.  It just fits in our bento box.  Then a clementine for a head, with triscuit hair, candy eyes, and fruit flat smile.  I used a dab of leftover caramel sauce to hold the eyes in place.  Usually I wouldn't have that on hand, so I would probably use cream cheese as the glue.  It took only a couple of minutes longer than if I had just made a sandwich and peeled an orange, but the kids were really excited.
