Harry Potter - Slytherin House

We're only three or four chapters away from being done with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets so we're all about Slytherins today. We have yet to discover who the Heir of Slytherin is ... so no spoilers!
The crest is drawn onto a spinach tortilla wrap stuffed with shredded steak and provolone (and then heated to melt the cheese and seal it a bit). It sits on top of Frito corn chip scoops. To the side is a dipping cup of salsa, grapes, a few jelly beans, and a Draco Malfoy DIY pick.

Shaun of the Dead - The Plan

10 years ago today one of the greatest films ever saw it's UK release - Shaun of the Dead! (We here in the States had to wait until September. Sometimes life just isn't fair.) To celebrate, I made a lunch based on one of my favorite scenes: The Plan.

It's a simple lunch of pasta with sauce and provolone cheese with a couple of hard cooked eggs. They wouldn't all fit nicely in one of fancy lunch boxes so I packed in a simple Rubbermain TakeALong.

Castleville Legends in @EasyLunchboxes

John was watching me play Zynga's Castleville Legends on Facebook the other day and became enthralled. PLEASE could he have it on his computer or iPad? Please please PLEASE??? So ... now he does and he absolutely loves it... to the point of wanting Rafael and Yvette for lunch!
Rafael is drawn onto a pb&j sandwich and Yvette is on Empire Jack cheese. There are also pretzel sticks, grapes, SnaPea Crisps and ranch dip.

Game of Thrones : All Men Must Die

I am SO excited about Game of Thrones coming back on Sunday night! I've been rewatching from the beginning on the HBO GO app on my iPad and getting myself more and more pumped up. Tonight is my last night of work before the season starts so, of course, I had to make another GoT lunch (<-- click to see any of the past ones you may have missed).

I had so many ideas but the one I kept coming back to came from a conversation Daenerys had in season 3 with Missandei.
Missandei: Valar morghulis.
Daenerys: Yes. All men must die, but we are not men.
At first I thought that I would just do the two of them from that scene ... but I wanted to include more of the kickass women I love so much.
 in the lunch: banana yogurt, granola thins, chicken with vegetables, salsa & cheese

And a close-up:

The House Cup

John asked for the House Cup for lunch today so that's what he has ....
The Cup is drawn onto a pb&j sandwich with empire jack cheese letters, pepperoni slices on a DIY HP pick, a chocolate frog in a house cup, veggie straws, and a clementine. Using this set up with the inner boxes for his Laptop Lunch box I was also able to put his apple juice right in the container instead of having his lunchbag all lumpy (and risk a beaten up juice box!).
