The Week in Bento: December 9-12, 2008 plus December 15, 2008

by Wendy Copley on January 4, 2009

OK, so this post has been a long time coming. We were traveling for the last few weeks of the year and my weekly bento update just slipped through the cracks.

Preschooler Bento #114: December 9, 2008

Tuesday our cupboards were freshly stocked so I was able to send several of Wyatt’s favorites: strawberries with some sprinkles for cuteness, canned peaches, a laughing cow cheese and a hot dog bun.

Preschool Bento #115: December 10, 2008

Wednesday I sent some leftovers from dinner the night before: mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots and green beans), garlic bread, chicken apple gouda sausage chunks and some catsup in the little pink box.

Preschooler Bento #116: December 11, 2008

Thursday marked the victorious return of spicy meat! I managed to resist Wyatt’s pleas to buy it for a couple of weeks, but finally caved in and got some more. I also sent garlic bread and a clementine wedges.

Preschooler Bento #117: December 12, 2008

Daddy made the bento on Friday because I was feeling sick and slept in a bit. He sent chocolate shortbread stars, french fries, salami and a hot dog bun. Go Daddy, go!

Preschooler Bento #118: December 15, 2008

I also sent a bento with Wyatt the Monday before we left on our trip. He got some nice Wall-E toys for Christmas from his aunt and uncle the night before, so I let Eve pose in the photo too. Here you see: baked tofu, a red pepper giraffe, clementine wedges a few grapes and some pretzel crackers.

    I absolutely love your Bentos boxes! I can’t get enough of them. They each look like a mini work of art. I am 28 weeks along with our first child, and I hope to be the type of mom that you are, and send my child to school with a bento box. Thanks for sharing.

    I never thought to cut bell peppers into shapes. That’s amazing!! I’m going to try that. Using mini cookie cutters is how I got my little girl to eat cheese other than string cheese. Thanks to your inspiration of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Oh! I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and in there baking section they have mini cookie cutters you can by individually in fun shapes like cars and trains. Just thought I would mention it. This is of course assuming they have Hobby Lobby in Cali. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • As someone who is also living on a tight budget, I find your blog incredibly entertaining! Who said food can’t be fun?

    The way you carefully craft each bento box for your son, is creative and heartwarming. Keep up the great work. I’ll be back to read along.

    So glad that you are back. I check you blog weekly as both of our children are similar in age and food preferences. Thanks for the great ideas.

  • I just wanted to let you know I love looking at all your bento boxes, and I don’t have anyone at home now who needs a packed lunch everyday. They really are small works of art! And they all look so delcious. Come to think of it, maybe I can convince my college-age son to start taking his lunch to school again LOL so I can try these!
