Pony Express Bento

Pony Express

This Day in History: On April 3, 1860 the Pony Express began. It was an American mail delivery service that used horses and young riders to deliver mail across rough terrain as fast as possible. It only lasted 18 months.

This lunch did not turn out as I had imagined. I think that the horse is the problem (and lack of a rider). My horse cookie cutter was not running, it was standing so I used a unicorn cutter and cut off the horn. But this lunch tasted delicious and it was fun to eat the cute apple slices.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Background: Celery sticks

Horse: Flatout Flatbread – Heritage Wheat (toasted), eye (dried blueberry), rough terrain (Trader Joe’s Veggie & Flaxseed Tortilla Chips)

Lettering: Carrot (glued on with some peanut butter)

Mini Horses: Apples 

Hummus: Homemade with some paprika on top
