Dating from October

These bentos and lunches were all made in October, but I was soooo busy that I never had a chance to post them. So here they are, extremely late (particularly embarrassing is the Halloween theme...) but not totally forgotten. Now that we're back from vacation and starting to get back into our routines again I'm hoping to go back to more regular postings :)

Grilled cheese flower: half swiss & half cheddar, cucumber stem & leaf, pineapple & grape 'hula' dancers, tomato soup with grated parmesan, wheat thins.

Two star onigiri, two corn croquettes, two cherry tomatoes stuffed with steamed broccoli, one two-potato gyoza, all on a bed of lettuce. Carrot and nori jack'o'lantern.

Thai two-potato mixture filled onigiri, storebought veggie gyoza, carrot and nori jack'o'lantern.
Corn croquettes, steamed broccoli, cherry tomato, star crunch yummy cracker thingies.
Thai two-potato mixture filled onigiri, carrot and nori jack'o'lantern, veggie gyoza, cherry tomato, corn croquettes. Maple leaf sweet bean cakes, black berries.

Jasmine rice with carrot flower and black sesame seeds, Japanese wheat cake on the side. Udon noodles with carrot ribbon, more black sesame seeds and steamed broccoli.

Same as above, pretty much, lol. Except the cake had lychee flavor gummy-stuff inside if I remember correctly. At this point we were only a few days away from vacation and the cupboards were depleted of interesting foods so these bentos aren't very colorful.
