Another week, another batch of lunches. Read all the way to the bottom for a spoooooky lunch!
Tuesday I gave Wyatt a thermos with buttered noodles in it, so the bento box I sent was one of the smaller ones. I purchased this box specifically to go along with thermos meals because I don’t want to send as much other stuff on the days I send something hot. It really packs a lot of food though. This one has grapes, deli ham roll-ups and some steamed green beans left over from last night’s dinner (barley visible under the ham).
This is what the two containers look like. Both are car themed which I didn’t even realize until I looked at this picture.
Wednesday: baked tofu with a tofu giraffe cut-out, honey nut cheerios (I bought them instead of regular Cheerios by mistake), lots of strawberries.
Thursday: banana bread, fruit leather stars, grapes, strawberries, turkey meatballs and a monkey full of catsup.
Ooooooh! Spooky Halloween bento! This is probably the cutest bento I’ve ever made and the closest I’ve ever come to food “art”. The monster face is made out of an English muffin that I made into garlic bread. I cut the bottom off, put two slices of apple in the middle for the lips and inserted marshmallow teeth between those. I used honey as glue to stick the mouth together. I got this idea from Family Fun magazine. They used peanut butter for the glue, but Wyatt won’t eat that so I went with the honey. The other half of the box has apple sauce with a fruit leather jack-o-lantern face and some grapes.
Happy Halloween everyone! It’s raining here, but we’re hoping for clear skies by evening.
