Tuesday’s bento box was an example of one made in the artist’s blue period. In honor of Wyatt’s new, blue bento box and it’s matching fork, I decided to try to make a blue-ish lunch. I sent blueberries (of course), leftover string beans, a blueberry muffin and some salami. I also noticed, after taking the picture that it’s sort of red, white and blue, so if you want you can say it’s in honor of the inauguration too.
Wednesday I put some sliced apples, salami, blueberries and some sugar-free jell-o jigglers in Wyatt’s lunch. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but the jell-o was molded into train shapes using a little silicone mold. I forgot to take pictures of the mold this time, so I’ll try to remember to do that next time. I told Wyatt they were his treat and he ate his entire lunch in order to get them. Hee hee.
Thursday’s lunch was blueberries, salami, a slice of whole wheat white bread cut into quarters and some broccoli I pulled out of the freezer. Two seconds after I took this picture, I dropped the lid and the blue half of this box in the crockpot insert that was soaking in the sink. Grrrrr… The hastily made replacement box wasn’t quite as nice looking.
Friday I gave Wyatt baked teriyaki tofu, strawberries and blueberries, and more bread strips. I also gave him a little brownie (for a real treat — not a tricky treat). I got a call from the preschool about five minutes after I got home from dropping him off saying he wasn’t feeling good, so I went back to get him. He ended up eating this as soon as he got home. He’s been home with us all day today and frankly, I think he may have been faking it, but what are you gonna do?
