Spidery Monster Bento

MisterMan gets a salmon salad sandwich on whole wheat thin with lettuce and cheddar. Guarding it is fanged tomato spider with baby carrot legs. Strawberries, raspberries and black grapes, with tiny sugar plum carved jackolantern.


Don't know if he has Star Wars on the brain, but when he saw it he said, "Cool! The Sarlacc pit monster!" What? It's not even a pit. But maybe after Halloween I need to make one more Star Wars bento...


Also, I propped up the 'wich for the photo; while everything fits nicely, I have to admit the spider legs will be a tad DIY at lunchtime :)


(I used Picasa on my laptop for the 1st time so my pic might look weird; might try a different software next time)

    Thank you so much flickr Halloween fans! You are sooo kind!! It's true I think little ones would really like such a strange creature as well :)

    @cvalou: Je ne crois pas que vous avez peur de cette araignée .... vous avez fait beaucoup plus effrayantes bento articles!!!

    I don't believe you are afraid of this spider....you have made much scarier bento items...!! ^_^

    @ Lil'chan, don't know about carving queen... but probably the most persistent :)

    @Bentolicious: Thank you, I hope you make it for your boy :)

    @Dale'sMommy: Whooops! *sorry!* I've done that many times!

    @Meryl CA: Certainly; we like lunch laughs!

    @bentolunches @homtchr: Many many thanks!!

    "Cute" is I think relative, though :)
