(#119) Mac and cheese

Good Monday everyone!!!! I hope y'all enjoy your weekend ^_^
Our weekend was great, the weather was gorgeous here in Bellingham. We went down town on Saturday, had some fresh doughnut for brunch then heading up to the farmers market. I was so excited to found some purple cauliflower, mixed baby tomatoes and some purple(almost black) and yellow green beens. I never seen purple green beans before and I thought it would be perfect for bento this week as I'd love to start giving a little touch of Halloween to it.

But on Sunday I decided to do some deep cleaning and I spent almost the whole afternoon, feel so lazy afterwards and not in the mood to prepare some dinner, besides I just had a BIG sushi dinner on Saturday after having some doughnut for bruch. *0*... Oh I feel so full just thinking about it... LOL

Then hubby said he can fix himself a sandwich and made mac and cheese for the boys, and I said okay!! not a bad idea! the boys love mac and cheese once in a while. :P

So I included some leftovers mac and cheese for today's bento along with hardboiled egg, purple cauliflower, mixed tomatoes, asparagus, sugar snaps and I also make turkey sandwich for D and honey sandwich for B. I put that spider witch food picks that I got from Michaels last week.
