Roald Dahl Day Blog Hop
Bento Bloggers & Friends are celebrating Roald Dahl's birthday with a Roald Dahl Day blog hop.

The button will appear on each blog in the hop. Click the button on each blog's post to hop to the next one.
Roald Dahl's books are strange, wonderful, and slightly creepy. My son and I read a couple of new-to-us Dahl books during the past couple of weeks. Here are the lunches that I made based on the books we read.
In the ELB lunchbox: almond butter & jelly Alfie made with a FunBites cutter, cheese 7 for the perfect size replacement turtle, Esio Trot in cheese, Zbar grabber, raisins, kiwi, and salad with little radish hearts.
Danny, The Champion of the World
Boogs, my son, thought this must have been an amazing sight to watch those birds streaming out of the carriage. We decided that image should be part of his story themed lunch. In the Laptop lunchbox: pb&j baby carriage with pretzel wheels, pheasants made of banana chips with dried apricot heads & dried mango wings, raisins, salad with Sleeping Beauty radish letters, and Laughing Cow cheese.
Boogs and I enjoyed reading these Roald Dahl books. Boogs was rather concerned about the dishonesty and stealing in the books. We discussed that these were fictional characters and that he should not try to trick people like Mr. Hoppy did or steal from them like Danny and his father did.
