Halloween Spider Bento

It's pumpkin season and I love anything pumpkin especially the foods, flavored coffee and tea. I baked some pumpkin spice muffins for tea time and saved some of them for the next day's breakfast. Nikolai asked if I could pack one for his school lunch and the spider idea came to my mind.

Since I did not bake the muffins in our spider silicone cups, rather I just popped one into it when they were done, added a couple of candy eyes and nearly instantly I had a pumpkin spider.
His sides were roll ups turkey slices which I put into another spider cup, organic baby carrots with a spider web cupcake ring and seedless green grapes. This is the easiest spider themed lunch I've ever made. I've made a couple in the past, one out of bread which you can find here and another was from pancakes which you can find here.

As for the message on the banana, I used a toothpick and wrote BOO on the banana peel, can you see it? At first it will be tough to see, but after several minutes the message will begin to darken, and by lunch time it will be easy to ready. This lunch was packed in an Ecolunchboxes solo cube.

Nikolai noted that unlike my pumpkin muffin spider, REAL spiders have eight eyes! He is actually quite correct in that, but no way I would let him talk me into eight candy eyes!

Note to self: If a message is written on the banana peel before preparing the lunch, it will have more time in which to turn darker before I snap the picture.
