Easter Themed Lunch Food

Easter Food Collage

This year I have 6 new themed meals for Easter. I had fun with Easter Egg shaped food, chicks, and an English Muffin lamb.  See here for other Easter themed food.

Easter Egg Shaped Stuffed Bread

I often make and share shaped bread. For these Easter egg breads I stuffed them with a cube of mozzarella when I shaped them.

Chick with Woven Egg lunch easter food

I wove thinly sliced carrot and then cut it with an egg shaped cookie cutter. Then I carefully transferred it to my bowl. It was easier to make than I expected and fun to eat.

Container: Kokeshi box

Top Tier: Tea bag

Left Tier: Rice and green peas, egg shaped woven carrot, cheese chick

Right Tier: Radish, grapefruit, Vans Blueberry Walnut Granola, alfalfa sprouts

Chick Bento Lunch

I consider this one unsuccessful but it makes me laugh. The chick’s eye and too much of the color green are what I think is the problem with this one. But perhaps you can adapt some of the ideas to better use.

Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.

Contents: Broccoli, turmeric rice, candy eye, radish, sugar snap peas, apple, alfalfa sprouts

Lamb English Muffin Lunch

I made this cute lamb with a cookie cutter and English Muffin. Inside the Lego box is Peanut butter to spread to make a sandwich.

Container: Book Bento Box

Contents: Angel hair (yarn), kiwi, broccoli, carrot, English Muffin (lamb) alfalfa sprouts

Easter Egg Cheese Lunch

A simple cheese garnish can make a meal special. I placed cheddar cheese egg shapes on top of my macaroni salad (made with Greek yogurt).

Happy Snail Bento Lunch

Snail bento lunch

I had fun making and eating this Happy Snail lunch. The snail is mashed potato with these eye picks and spinach details. I used a cookie cutter from the Ikea Woodland set to make the snail shape. Since I don’t like nori, I used spinach instead to detail the snail’s shell. As usual, I enjoyed drawing on pistachio shells.

Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.

Contents: Broccoli, orange cheddar mashed potatoes, spinach, chickpeas, spiced tomato sauce, pistachios with food marker details, blueberries
