Blueberry Bento Week: July 21-25, 2008

by Wendy Copley on July 25, 2008

This week, lunch packing was more challenging for me than it usually is. Zach was out of town from Sunday-Wednesday so I had to do the whole morning routine by myself every day. I can do it, of course, but I’m not used to doing it, so we found ourselves rushing, rushing, rushing every day. I’d stocked up on groceries for the week Sunday morning, but somehow I found myself without a lot of my regular lunch staples, so I ended up hitting the freezer for lunch items more than usual. This is a perfect scenario to show why I love having a freezer stocked with little lunch items. The other thing about this week is that somehow I ended up sending blueberries to preschool every day. Normally, I try to shake things up a bit more, but they are just so good right now, they’re fairly cheap and Wyatt loves them. I don’t think that he’s ever turned down a blueberry, in fact.

Monday I sent a lunch with all of Wyatt’s favorites: blueberries, mini-blueberry muffin, chicken apple sausage and blueberry catsup (ha ha! not really — it was just regular catsup).

Tuesday morning I lost the chicken apple sausages somewhere in our freezer but in the process of looking for them, I found some of the chicken taquitos I sent a few weeks back. I put them in the bento box along with some pineapple salsa and a good sized pile of strawberries and blueberries. This lunch was a great success — the box came back completely empty of food.

There’s nothing wrong with sending your kid to school with the same lunch two days in a row — particularly if they eat it all — so Wednesday I did just that. So here we have chicken taquitos, pineapple salsa, strawberries and blueberries and I added a half a banana for good measure.

Thursday morning I couldn’t find a meat-based protein in our fridge or freezer to save my life, so I decided to give Wyatt breakfast for lunch. He got two blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurt (under the counter-intuitive happy strawberry food separator) and some strawberry chunks. And no, the yogurt didn’t spill — I know this because it came back to our house in absolutely un-touched, pristine condition.

Zach went to the store yesterday so we have lots of good fruit and other fresh victuals in our house. I sent blueberries, of course, a mixture of grapes and bing cherries and a sandwich made of flat bread, salami and catsup. The thought of eating that combo, frankly, makes me want to gag, but Wyatt seems to like it.

Have a good weekend everyone!
