Wizard of Oz Blog Hop

With the movie, Oz the Great and Powerful, coming out today, myself and some fellow bloggers are creating some fabulous bentos to celebrate. If you missed it, be sure and hop through yesterday's group of fantastic Oz inspired lunches, starting with Keitha's Chaos. And when you're done here, be sure to click on the blog hop button at the bottom of the page to continue through to some more unique and inspiring creations! I don't know about you, but the movie is on my to do list this weekend (hopefully), as is purchasing a copy of the original movie. I was horrified to find, when rifling through my dvds, that I only have an old VHS copy. What's worse? I have nothing to play a VHS on. I must fix this issue asap. At least, the kiddo has seen enough bits and pieces of the movie on tv to 'get' the lunch. And, with that, on to the lunch...

Watermelon with the wicked witch grape, cucumbers and red bell pepper with the Scarecrow, Lion, and Tin Man's hat (um, yeah, it is a hat wrapped in tin foil), sharp cheddar 'yellowish' brick road, rainbow of mini M&M's, and Dorothy is salami, smoked provolone, Trader Joe's roasted seaweed, and bread from the local bakery.

Dorothy was made using our CuteZCute cutter, including the facial features, which were all punched out using the cat insert. Love that tool!

Now, follow the yellow brick road on over to El Lunch de mi Enano, and others from there, for some more magical creations! There's no place like Bento Bloggers & Friends!

In this lunch...

  15. It just occurred to me that a Hershey's Kiss would have made a great tin man! Doh!
    Love how you found picks for all the characters though, and LOVE the Dorothy sandwich!

    1. Yeah, and no matter how many times I insisted that it was NOT a Hershey's Kiss, kiddo had to unwrap it to check for the chocolate! That was part of the reason for the last minute addition of the rainbow.. apparently, I was missing the chocolate! :)
