Potato Football Bento

Potato Football Lunch

Continuing in my series of twice baked potato lunches, here is a football themed meal. I served this to my 16 year old nephew for lunch at home. It was his idea to make the goal post and field out of bell peppers. I love collaborating with my nephew. I think that it turned out great.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Background: Lettuce

Footballs: Twice baked potato riced with a little butter, milk, Mexican cheese blend, salt, pepper, and cooked broccoli (turned upside down), football detail (cheddar cheese)
