The Mummy

We faced the after birthday doldrums with as much courage as we could muster this morning. Which is to say that A-chan was grumpy and I was exhausted but we pulled together and managed to get to school on time, with a halloween bento and everything! After her excitement yesterday she was understandably feeling that today was a let down, lol. We have been meaning to go buy her a new car seat for two days now (the one she has is only rated up to 6 years so time for a change) but we haven't had the time. So we have a little bit of birthday stuff left to do today.

I decided on a mummy bento for this morning in honor of A-chan's costume for her friends' b-day party a few weeks ago. They had a Scooby Doo themed party for which A-chan decided to dress as a mummy. It was a lot of fun and she looked great!

Top tier: Veggie hot dogs, steamed broccoli, baby corn spears, raspberries, a tiny sliver of lemon and a carrot jack'o'lantern.

Bottom tier: Spaghetti noodle mummy with nori face and mozzarella cheese eyes. On the side is a small container of grated parmesan cheese to sprinkle over the noodles.

It looks like we're going to have to carve new pumpkins by Halloween, the ones we'd already carved are all moldy and caving in. The weather has been conspiring against us this year by being incredibly hot and rainy and muggy and humid and generally icky. Most days this week were 80 degrees or over!
