Golden State Warriors basketball champions bento box lunch(This post contains affiliate links)

Wahooooo! My beloved Warriors won the NBA playoffs this week and they are officially the champs!

We were all on a high after Monday night’s game, so of course I had to make Augie a Warriors lunch for day camp yesterday. I hadn’t planned this lunch in advance so I didn’t buy anything special to make this lunch — I just used stuff I already had in my kitchen.

I started by grabbing our brand new Neptune Blue Yumbox Panino (thanks for sending me this sample, Yumbox!) because it was the absolute perfect shade of Warriors blue. Next, I chopped a yellow nectarine into chunks and sprinkled them with a few blueberries for more blue and gold.

I wanted to add in the initials for the Warriors somewhere in the lunch box and I had been planning to use cheese or fruit leather to cut them out but we were out of both so instead I peeled a cucumber and cut the letters from the skin. Augie didn’t eat these, but they gave a nice effect.

Next, I made a quick sunflower seed butter and jelly sandwich and drew a basketball on it with food coloring markers. I always mess up the black lines when I’m drawing a basketball, so this time I dug up a basketball sticker and copied it. I think it came out pretty well!

And last, but not least, I put a few gummy bears in the treat compartment. I made sure to get a few blue and yellow bears on top!

Yay Warriors!

Cute Stuff from BentoUSA

by Wendy Copley on February 17, 2017

My BentoUSA haul!(This post contains affiliate links.)

The postman delivered a big box of fun stuff from BentoUSA today! Yay!

I was busy with some other stuff when it arrived, so I decided to open it with Augie when he got home from school. And then I decided to do a spur of the moment Facebook Live unboxing video. You can check it out and get a peek at everything that came in my order (there was a lot!) in the video below. Plus, get a quick look at how I “organize” my bento stuff!

(Pretty cool how the thumbnail for this video is a messy pile of cookie cutters, isn’t it? This isn’t the stuff that came in my order — it’s how I “organize” some of my bento stuff!)

BentoUSA is my favorite place to buy bento supplies because they have a huge selection of items, their prices are reasonable compared to other online stores and the shipping is only $6 (or free if you spend enough money). If you are just beginning to pack bento lunches, it is a great place to shop if you want to build your stash.

For reference, here are links to the goodies I showed in my video:

FYI: I’m a BentoUSA affiliate, but they did not ask me to say all this stuff or send me anything for free. I’m a happy customer and I’d like to spread the word to my bento-obsessed friends!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Cutesy lunches — especially ones filled with hearts and pink stuff — are not exactly my boys’ favorite right now, but I usually can get them to let me make them something on this lovely day. Here’s what I sent them to school with: Augie let me go all out with a […]

This post includes affiliate links. Join me as we journey to the Upside Down — in a lunch box! Oooooooh! It’s not often that my 12-year-old is interested in fun bentos anymore — and it’s even more unusual when he wants to help me design one — so I felt like I’d been invited to […]
