September 13th marks Roald Dahl's 97th birthday. We love Roald Dahl's books in our house. The Fantastic Mr. Fox, James and the Giant Peach, The boy and of course Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are our favorites. Bento Bloggers and Friends is having a Blog Hop to celebrate so at the end of the post will be a link to an amazing bento blogger and her Roald Dahl inspired lunch!
To celebrate his birthday I packed a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lunch for my oldest son - since I knew he would appreciate it most - having recently seen the movie.
Our Easylunchboxes are packed to the rim with:
- red grape candies
- a Violet Beauregarde gluten free blueberry and coconut muffin with fruit leather arms
- of course a golden ticket sandwich filled with peanut butter and chocolate
- two pieces of candy
- grape tomato and cheese Oompa Loompas
Happy Birthday, Roald Dahl!
And now hop over to my friend Rebecca from Bentos on the Bayou and see what she made for our Roald Dahl Hop (just click our hop button):
