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.
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
