Hoppin' Halloween Witch - Blog Hop and Bento Fun!

These Boots Were Made For Hoppin'!
Click the pumpkin button to check out the spooOooOooky (and probably mustachio'd) fun from feeling a little lunchy, and keep "hopping" through to the next link, until you've come back around to me!
 
For more fun foodie Halloween inspirations, check out the Bento Bloggers and Friends Halloween linky, and feel free to link up any of your own! (They can either be blog posts or pictures linked from any public photo sharing site, such as flickr.)

Don't fly off on your broom just yet! Stick around and keep reading for more on my fun lunch!
Horizon Organics milk, golden raspberries, Chobani Champions Orange Vanilla Greek yogurt w/dye-free sprinkles,
extra sprinkles (in jack-o-lantern container,) green beans, SunButter and jelly sandwich.
Mini "Pumpkins": I chose the golden raspberries because they are kind of pumpkin-y looking. And we'd just gotten them from the organic farm stand where we get our CSA box each week. And no witch is complete without her little black cat cupcake pick

Yummy Pumpkin: I put most of a Chobani Champions Orange Vanilla Greek yogurt into a black silicone pumpkin cup, and saved the rest to freeze in a fun ice cube mold of some kind (to be determined later!) I sprinkled on a few all-natural chocolate jimmies and dye-free green jimmies, plus added more into a plastic jack-o-lantern bottle found in a set at Dollar Tree. They initially came with some kind of artificially colored and flavored powder candy, but I dumped it and rinsed them out to use the bottles for more naturally fun stuff!

Which Witch is Which?: I used SunButter to make this lunch nut-free, in case she came with us to E's baby class (at a nut-free school.) [Hubby ended up staying home sick, so he let Z stay home too, since she's pretty low maintenance in the mornings!] 
I used a pumpkin cutter to make two bread pumpkins, then used the additional face cut-outs on the top slice only. Cut up some green beans and arranged them into "hair," then added some 3-D witch hat and shoes cupcake toppers to turn a pumpkin into a witch! Bibbity Boppity Boo THAT!
