Photo of a bento box lunch filled with ribs, sugar snap peas, berries and garlic bread

Happy Friday! I have recently restarted a long-running series from this blog — The Week in Bentos! Every week for 7 years(!!) I posted a round-up of all the lunches my kids had during the week. It was fun, but also a lot of work and after my readers’ interest dropped off I decided to stop publishing these posts. I still packed the lunches, of course, but when I posted them they went up on my Facebook and Instagram pages.

But now The Week in Bentos is BACK! Instead of a photo blog post, I’ve decided I’m going to start taking short videos every morning and compiling them into a video. This is the third week I’ve done it and it’s been fun to put them together. As long as people keep watching them, I will keep making them!

You can see weeks 1 and 2 over on my YouTube channel. (Be sure to subscribe while you’re over there so you don’t miss any of my other fantastical bento and craft content!)

And here is this week’s video:
