Muggle Munchies

My little muggles are in for a treat today! I found some little boxes of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans among the Hallowe'en candies, oh about a month ago, and decided to buy some and stash them away for a Harry Potter themed lunch. Amazingly, they survived all this time in the same house as candy addict me! OK, so I forgot I had them :)

Ham topped with a lightning bolt chunk of cheddar cheese (Harry's scar) mini grilled cheese Sorting Hats, carrot wands (I divided a fat carrot into long sticks and whittled them - kind of fun - made lots of carrot shavings for my lunch salad), little broccoli baby mandrakes, and of course, the Bertie Bott's candy beans. Hope they don't get any bogey flavoured ones!

Pickle's peanut butter sandwiches are not what I was going for...  I tried to cut them in Harry Potter scar-like lightning bolt shapes, but couldn't do it to save my life! I don't know what my problem was... the fact that I didn't have my morning coffee, the distraction of my bickering sproutlets, my lack of artistic talent... yeah, most likely all three :) Anyways, here's what he ended up with :

The top sandwich is somewhat lightning shaped - if you're not picky - and beneath it are more failed attempts. I know my boy will still be happy with it  ♥
