Roald Dahl Day Bento Blog Hop

James and the Giant Peach Lunch

Welcome to our Roald Dahl Day Blog Hop. To continue on to the next blog, scroll down to the end of this post and click on the button.

When I found out that my Bento Bloggers and Friends planned to hold a Roald Dahl Bento Hop, my first thought was James and the Giant Peach. I have vivid memories of my 1st grade teacher reading the book to my class. I did not see the movie because I did not want anything to compete with my childhood memories of this story.

This lunch is very simple but it is how I would have drawn it as a child. It portrays the seagulls carrying the peach in the sky. You can imagine what is inside the peach. That was my favorite part as a child, thinking about James, Centipede, Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Ladybug, and Earthworm interacting inside a peach.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Peach & Seagulls: Seagulls (pie crust), strings (angel hair pasta), Peach (Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza Dough – two circle pieces with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese inside and baked. After baking I brushed on orange food coloring)

Vegetable: Zima tomatoes

Book & Fruit: Book (cheese quesadilla with food color marker text), yogurt covered raisins
