The Week in Bentos: June 17-20, 2008

by Wendy Copley on June 20, 2008

Here are the bento boxes I sent Wyatt to preschool with this week:

I was sick Tuesday morning, so Zach let me sleep in and made Wyatt his very first bento box: banana yogurt, chicken sausage and pretzel thins.

Another chicken sausage on Wednesday, along with strawberries and a little teddy bear shaped onigiri (rice cake). Wyatt had eaten a nice amount of rice at dinner the night before, so I thought he’d like it, but he didn’t even touch it.

Thursday was hot, so I decided to make a refreshing fruit and cheese bento. I put in cantaloupe, strawberries, half a banana and a Laughing Cow cheese wedge. I also added some little corn muffins that I’d made the night before. I was positive that this was one of the all time best lunches I’d ever made, but all he ate was the cheese and strawberries. He did polish off the cantaloupe and banana in the car on the way home but he didn’t even touch the muffins. I think he’s doing it just to spite me. Or maybe he’s on a muffin strike until I make blueberry muffins….

Today I decided to try something new and I made a quesadilla for Wyatt’s lunch. I cut it into circle, star and elephant shapes and put in some salsa for him to dip it in. I’m not sure how the quesadilla will hold up in the cold lunch box — we’ll see. I also put in some cantaloupe and grapes. That cantaloupe is lasting forever and we’re all eating some every day. Sheesh.

    Man, I thought I made some pretty outstanding lunches. I’m going to start taking pictures too. But what is in the little plastic thingies? The pink and yellow ones? And how did you make the little rice bear – cookie cutters? Did he eat the quesadillas? That’s a pretty good idea.

    We have these nice lunch boxes (http://www.laptoplunches.com/)

    Oh, one last question – doesn’t the banana custard explode all over the rest of the lunch when he throws it into the lunch box bin at school?

  • looking good!! my four year old loves quesadillas for his lunch. He also likes mini pizzas, made on mini pita bread with sauce, pineapple and cheese. How would you put that into a Bento?!?!?
