We All Scream for Ice Cream Bento

I didn't really have a theme in mind, and not much time to put lunch together, but I decided I wanted to use something from my new Lunch Punch Sweets set for the sandwich. I chose the ice cream cones one mostly because it makes two little sandwiches, to make it easier to eat them at different times, since lately she's been asking to eat her lunch right after breakfast, as well as before school. 

We All Scream for Ice Cream
Her lunch: PBHoney 'cones,' sugar snap peas,
cottage cheese, oranges w/strawberries
The strawberries each had a bite taken out of them [long story. Basically, Z was left unattended with the carton of berries,] so I sliced around the stems and bites. While I was looking for an appropriate pick to go with the theme to make the strawberry and orange slices easier to eat, I found my ice cream cone spork/cupcake pick. Woot! Not useful for the fruit, but worked great for the cottage cheese! I didn't really have anything good to eat the fruit with, so I let her use her fingers.

My lunch: snap peas w/broccoli and Ranch, orange slices,
PBHoney sandwich

She ended up eating the remaining almost-1/3rd of her sandwich and 2/3rds of a banana for breakfast, so saved her lunch for after gym class. But she ate all but one snap pea... oh excuse me. Sugar snap peas. Whenever I call them pea pods or snap peas, she corrects me.
She also ate both sandwich-cones. And maybe half of the cottage cheese. She ate a little bit of fruit, but not much.

Both lunches are in our EasyLunchBoxes. Ranch dip is in a blue Tupperware Smidget. Ice cream cone spork/pick came from a cupcake pick grab bag from a retailer that no longer exists.
