Family Bentos!

by Wendy Copley on October 13, 2008

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.

Preschooler Bento #84: October 12, 2008

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.

Bento #39: October 12, 2008

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.

Bento #38: October 12, 2008

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.

  • Very cool! We did picnics this way all summer, thanks to your bento inspiration. I need to post about it still though! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I bought my first bento b/c of your blog and the beautiful lunches you make for your son. I did picnics with them all summer long! I also made my daughter lunches when we went to the zoo and the pool. I now have 4 bentos for our family and one more on the way. I can’t stop myself!

    I’ve also read of a mom who takes an empty bento with dividers when she goes out to eat and uses it as a doggie bag. I haven’t done that yet b/c I forget to pack it most of the time, but I think I’ll try it next time we go somewhere I know we’ll have leftovers. Then my husband can take it to work. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jessica — I love that idea for taking the bento to the restaurant to use as a doggie bag. I’ll have to try that.
