Halloween lunch with ghost sandwiches!

I love making fun lunches for the boys, but hadn’t made one in a while! With Halloween right around the corner, I thought a frightfully fun lunch was appropriate. I wanted to make ghost sandwiches, but you can’t make those with whole wheat bread! It had to be white bread and I was pleased to find a great option in the new white bread from our sponsor, Wonder bread Smartwhite for Kids! Itโ€™s baked with no high fructose corn syrup and is only 50 calories per slice. Plus, itโ€™s fortified with the fiber of 100% whole wheat bread and contains the calcium of an 8-ounce glass of milk. So, I was thrilled that I could make white ghost sandwiches that are fun and healthy! Whether you serve it up at home or send it in a lunchbox, a Halloween lunch will definitely be a hit with the kids!

Ghost Sandwiches

– Prepare your kids’ favorite sandwich using Wonder bread Smartwhite for Kids. I made turkey and provolone, which was perfect for the ghosts as it kept everything fairly white.

– Cut out ghosts from the sandwich(es). A ghost cookie cutter would work great for this, but I didn’t have one. With a knife, I just free-handed two ghosts out of one whole sandwich. Then, I used cut black olives to create a face on the front of the bread. For the rest of the lunch, I used various orange & black foods. A Halloween lunch didn’t feel complete without pumpkins, so I made cheese jack o’ lanterns. Using my pumpkin cookie cutter, I cut some shapes out of a cheese slice. Then, I carved out a jack ‘o lantern face. You could just leave it, but I decided to make it black by stuffing cut black olives into the openings I had carved out. To complete our Halloween-themed lunch, carrots & black olives were perfect for veggie sides. We also had some dried papaya that I cut slices of for more great orange color. The boys loved it!!!
