Lunchbox # 78 – Mini Tuna Puff Pastry, Octopus and Peaches

Lunchbox # 78 (for 4½ year old girl)

  • leftover mini Puff Pastry with Tuna, Corn, Mushrooms & Zucchini
  • raw baby corn
  • baby plum tomatoes with octopus food pick
  • pitted black olives
  • octopus made of Frankfurter/Wiener sausage with seaweed face
  • tinned peach slices, red and white grapes with fish food picks
  • mini malted biscuit
  • raspberry fromage frais in a tube – Choobs
  • rice milk with a straw
  • antibacterial gel to wash hands before lunch (not pictured)
  • wipe wrapped in aluminum foil with star fish sticker, to use after lunch

To make octopus I made 4 cuts in the sausage what gave me 8 octopus legs. Then I placed it, pushing it down and spreading octopus legs on greased frying pan, fried until browned. Once it cooled down octopus legs stayed in shape.
Then I did stick with a little bit of water eyes and smile made of seaweed sushi wrap / nori.

Everything closed in a lunchbox with a strap and placed together with large ice pack inside insulated Easy LunchBag.

Your thoughts…

  1. I was going to be VERY impressed that you got your daughter to eat octopus at lunch! Until I realized it was a hot dog. Very cute though.

  2. I love Tuna, its healthy and great for you. I have been looking for better ways to prepare this dish for a while. These days I make sure that the Tuna that I buy is from sustainable fishing sources.

  3. I am sure kids love this kind of surprises in their lunchboxes, great idea
