Not So Frightful Blog Hop

Though I've been a bit absent inconsistent in posting lately, I assure you I've been busy. Fall is my favorite season, and I absolutely love Halloween. So, when the Bento Bloggers and Friends had a three day Halloween Hop, I knew it was exactly what I needed to kick my butt in gear.
While our decorations and crafts have been out since before October, the holiday lunch packing gear has been hiding away in the basement pantry. When I finally pulled it all out, it was so hard to decide witch (yes, pun intended) way to go first. I decided on the traditional carved pumpkin for both the kiddo and the hubby, which is not so frightful really, but be sure to stop by often between now and Halloween for lots more holiday fun. In the meantime, here's lunch! And, don't forget to follow the hop by clicking on the Frightful Fall Blog Hop button at the bottom of the post for lots more fantastic ideas!

Halloween Pumpkins Lunch
Tricolor couscous, cucumber, orange bell pepper, sharp cheddar cheese, watermelon, frozen homemade cinnamon applesauce pumpkins, and frozen yogurt ghosts.

Obviously, the lunch above was for the kiddo. The one below was for the hubby! Mom? Scraps as usual, but they sure were yummy!
