Marvelous Things Will Happen!

It's Roald Dahl's birthday! We're big fans of the author's splendiferous works at our house. Sprout even wants to be Matilda for Hallowe'en this year :) But since I made Matilda book sandwiches last Roald Dahl Day, I decided to base this year's Dahl-icious lunches on other favourites...

In Sprout's James and the Giant Peach lunch:
  • a little peach cup of sliced cheddar, secured by Miss Spider
  • an EasyLunchboxes Mini Dipper* filled with magical glowing green "Crocodile Tongues" (chopped up gummi fruit snacks)
  • an Odwalla Kids bar (no significance other than she wanted one)
  • a stack of baby carrots held together by Mrs. Ladybug
  • a giant peach cup of strawberries & raspberries with the Earthworm being "buggy for books"
  • a blank Lunchbox Love note on which I've written a reminder: Marvelous Things Will Happen
*You can use dry erase markers to label or decorate both the EasyLunchboxes containers & the Mini Dippers!


Does this lunch look right to you? Or left?

In Bella's lunch, inspired by The BFG:

Have you made any scrumdiddlyumptious lunches or treats, today or any other day, that were inspired by Roald Dahl's books?

  1. Love your lunches! I wonder what crocodile tongues taste like ;) And now I can add The BFG to my must-read list - I still haven't read so many of Roald Dahl's books. Happy Roald Dahl Day!

  2. Ooh sleeping pill raisins! Love it. Great lunches

  3. Awesome as always, and love the crocodile tongues! Totally sharing your post! And thanks for the linky!

    I'm super new to bento making, but just wanted to let you know I love your blog and find your ideas so inspiring! Plus, I've been eying that fruit/veggie silicone set on allthingsforsale, and you've convinced me to put it in my cart already. I also listed you on my blog as a go-to source of bento inspiration:
