The Week in Bentos: September 30-October 3, 2008

by Wendy Copley on October 3, 2008

All righty then! Nothing too special about this week’s preschool lunches. I did try something new with the burrito in the thermos, but otherwise I don’t think there’s anything here that we haven’t seen before.

Tuesday I made Wyatt a little burrito out of refried beans and cheddar cheese. I heated it up because cold refried beans — yuck!  I then stuffed it in his thermos. It wasn’t exactly photogenic though so that’s why you can only see into the thermos a little way. I also sent grapes and an iced oatmeal cookie for a treat.

Wednesday I sent turkey pepperoni, a half a banana, grapes and a mini blueberry muffin.

Thursday I sent grapes again, along with leftover kielbasa from dinner the night before and some garlic toast cut into strips. I wasn’t sure if the garlic toast would be any good cold, but it was the hit of the lunch.

Friday’s lunch had a mini blueberry muffin, strawberries, turkey meatballs with catsup for dipping, and peas. I must say, I think I did a really good job picking the background paper for this photo. Doesn’t it coordinate perfectly? I like pretty paper….

    How do you bake tofu? And can you flavor it? You do the neatest things. I am really impressed.

  • Hi Karol — I actually buy the baked tofu I put in my son’s lunches — I’m far too lazy to make it myself and the store bought kind is pretty good. I get it at both Trader Joes and at the regular grocery store (Lucky’s or Safeway).

    I live on the fringes of the Mississippi Delta and can not find it anywhere. But I love a challenge and a chance to shop!! I did look at Kroger and they had never heard of Baked Tofu. I will try to find it when I go to Memphis next weekend. Thanks, Wendy. Hope all is well with the new baby and big brother. I bought silicone cupcake baking cups and silicone loaf pans for lunch boxes. I could not find those cute dividers so I bought flexible cutting boards that look to be the same thickness. I am going to attempt to cut dividers. Where there is a will…. Thanks for sharing all of your ideas.
