Hoppy Easter!

I am part of the Easter Blog Hop from Bento Bloggers & Friends!
Come and join the fun!

I made two lunches. One regular one and one that is completely food dye free.

The first lunch has a Pepperoni Calzone in EGG shape, a BUNNY breadstick and I also packed red grapes with an almond-grape BUNNY, strawberries and a plastic Easter EGG with food dye free fruit snacks. There is also a little gummy Easter BUNNY on top of the Easter egg (also food dye free). For the egg decorations and the eye of the bunny I used round and star shaped sprinkles.
I made the calzones by rolling out pizza dough and cutting the egg shape out with a cookie cutter. I then filled the calzones with sauce, cheese and pepperoni and baked them for 5-7 minutes at 425 degrees. The breadsticks are also made out of pizza dough with a cookie cutter my Mother-in-Law generously gave to me :) I made the grape bunnies by simply inserting two Almond slivers as ears and two very small pieces as eyes.
The kids also had a small leak proof container with pizza sauce for dipping, a yoghurt and ice water.

This one is my food dye free lunch. My son still has the EGG shape pepperoni calzone and the BUNNY breadstick but instead of sprinkles I used cheese cut into shapes to decorate the egg and to make the eye of the bunny :) He also has the red grapes with the almond-grape BUNNY, strawberries and a plastic Easter EGG with food dye free fruit snacks. The pink BUNNY gummy is from Trader Joe's and also food dye free :) He also had pizza sauce in a leak proof container, a yoghurt and ice water.

To see more wonderful and creative lunches join our Blog Hop and please start by hopping over to Lise's awesome blog !

Happy Hopping!
