The Week in Bentos: October 28-31, 2008

by Wendy Copley on October 31, 2008

Another week, another batch of lunches. Read all the way to the bottom for a spoooooky lunch!

Preschool Bento #94: October 28, 2008

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).

Preschool Bento #94: The stuff

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.

Preschool Bento #96: October 30, 2008

Thursday: banana bread, fruit leather stars, grapes, strawberries, turkey meatballs and a monkey full of catsup.

Preschooler Bento #97: October 31, 2008

Ooooooh! Spooky Halloween bento! This is probably the cutest bento I’ve ever made and the closest I’ve ever come to food “art”.ย  The monster face is made out of an English muffin that I made into garlic bread. I cut the bottom off,ย  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.

    Girl. You have gone on into the realm of beyond the norm of wendy cute. You have passed on over into the light. You rock. I hate to even tell you this, but the tofu is still in the fridge, have not had a minute to spare this week to even attempt to bake it. How long does tofu last? I hope a couple of weeks. Do the thermos things stay warm until lunch? I have a couple of insulated bowls with screw on lids and soup weather is upon us down south. Just thought a bowl of something like taco soup or chili would be good at lunch for my 14 year old that thinks I am such a drag. Rock on with your bad self.

    I noticed on an earlier post you used the rice shapers…can you tell me how to use them?? I ordered them on line but of course the directions are in Japanese? Can I use sushi rice that is cooked on the stove?

    Do you have the little hard boiled egg shapers??

    Thank you for all of the great inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I somehow “found” your blog, and I LOVE it. I love all the bentos you pack for your son. You are a very bad influence however. Check out my blog. I have caught the bento box bug, and part of it is your fault. LOL. I have 3 girls and they all fell in LOVE with them too.
    Congrats on your new bundle of joy. There is nothing like new babies.
