Jack O' Lantern Sandwich

So looking back at this attempt at creating a jack-o-lantern sandwich, it probably could have done without the cheese hair. I don't know why I did that because it sort of turned my Jack into a Jill O' Lantern, less is truly more sometimes. I added some grape eyes, orange pepper picks and of a piece of Halloween candy. Tomorrow is the biggest and best of my Halloween lunches!

BLT Wraps

I love the already cooked bacon Trader Joes has! It is a once in a while purchase that is nice to have on hand for side dishes, salads and a sandwich topping of course. So these are not actually BLT wraps because they are missing both the L and the T (due to a couple of I'm not going to eat it if it has crunchy stuff or ewww tomatoes comments). The boys had a whole wheat tortilla with bacon and cheese, watermelon cubes, mini sweet peppers (how cute are these?!) with hummus and a football filled with yogurt cookies.
