If you missed the last two weeks, you can check out all the great lunches on the Bento Bloggers and Friends blog! After you check out these ones, of course!

Santa "Claws"
PB-chocolate almond butter sandwich, string cheese nibblets, holiday Goldfish, TJ's Yogurt Stars,
freeze-dried edamame and sweet corn, raspberries (blackberries hiding underneath)
Believe: I decided to try her on some freeze-dried edamame and sweet corn I'd found recently at Target, even though she hasn't liked freeze-dried fruits in the past. I chose a present cupcake pick to jazz them up. And a "Believe" sign cupcake pick (found at a bake supply shop) for the raspberries and blackberries. (I hid the blackberries underneath since the red looked better.)

Santa Claws: I chose the kitty face from the cuteZcute cutter and cut the features out of the top slice of bread so that the chocolate almond butter could show through. I used some bits of uncooked spaghetti noodle to secure the Santa hat cupcake topper (bake shop find.)
Since kitties love fish, I sprinkled some red and green holiday Goldfish on top of the cheese nibblets "snow," along with a few Yogurt Stars cookies.

Packed in our EasyLunchboxes.
