Something Is Fishy on Muffin Tin Monday

I found those Pepperidge Farm fish shaped sandwich thins again on sale - $1.50 for a package of 8.  I grabbed them up and incorporated them into an ocean themed bento lunch for Pierce.
He had a cheese sandwich with mustard nestled in roasted seaweed from Trader Joe's - cut with kitchen scissors to look even more like seaweed!  Pierce loves the seaweed too, although I think I've eaten too much and now I'm a little over it.

Apples on a crab skewer, olives on a seahorse skewer, and a star full of mango crunchies rounded out the bento.  Oh wait, what about that little guy in the middle?  Oh yes, that's dessert!  A little marshmallow gingerbread man, riding the ocean waves.

This is just too adorable!!!! You must be the best mom ever, and you are so creative!

Mary said...

That is so creative! I have wanted to buy that bread for hailey but it seems pricy. We usually stick to the generic wheat. I may need to splurge one week and see what hailey thinks. :)

I hope you have a great week!

Cute and creative as usual, Lisa. :)

That is super cute! I've always wanted to try that goldfish bread.

Kim said...

For some reason I couldn't post my comment on the last post:
I want to be healthy and stick around for grandkids - to enjoy them and be of service to my kids some day. I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment I get from working out! You inspire me Lisa.

Also I've never seen those Pepperidge Farm thins around here before. I will have to look. Maybe Deaglan will eat them!
