We visited a historic farm yesterday and took a picnic with us. I made bentos for all of us for the first time. It’s been a really long time since I made a bento box for an adult which is weird to me since I started out making bentos for myself.
Here is Wyatt’s bento. He had grapes, mini blueberry muffins, a chicken gruyere sausage and some apple chunks dipped in pineapple juice to prevent browning.
This was my bento. I’ve just re-started Weight Watchers post-baby, so mine was packed with 0 point veggies. The sausage was 5 points and the apples were another point for a total of 6 points.
Zach’s bento had two of the same sausages, some cubes of Monterey Jack cheese, veggies and apples.
We all agreed that this was a great way to do a picnic lunch. They were easier to eat than a big box of stuff dumped together, we didn’t over eat and we didn’t throw anything away.
