The Week in Bento: January 27-30, 2009

by Wendy Copley on January 30, 2009

Here are the bentos for this week. I was able to get a little more creative now that I’m not rushing to get myself out the door for work too. (It helped that the baby has started sleeping a little later in the mornings too.)

Preschool Bento #131: January 27, 2009

Tuesday I sent strawberries, tofu (with kissing giraffe cut-outs) and a slice of banana bread with a strawberry cut into a heart shape.

Wednesday I sent mini-pizzas that I made along with our big pizzas the night before. I also sent an apple cut into chunks and some pretzels to fill in the gaps.

Thursday morning I had scrape the bottom of the barrel to come up with ideas for Wyatt’s lunch. It felt like we were out of everything. But look how nice this turned out! I put in some leftover salad greens from the previous night’s dinner with a few red pepper stars to jazz it up visually. He never eats the red peppers when I put them in his lunch though, so I think I need to come up with something else. There is a little balsamic vinaigrette in the little bottle with the black lid. I also sent some salami and a blueberry muffin from the freezer.

Friday I gave him a challah bun with a little teddy bear stamped into it, salami, blueberries and a cheese stick. I always open cheese sticks before I put them in his lunch because he can’t do it himself yet.

  • Very cute! I have a hard time dragging out of bed to get a bento made for my big girl(she is 16-I am only 37 btw) much less getting it cute. And she is an emo girl and would be embarassed though possibly touched by the cuteness. Oh well, half the time she makes her own with the stash I fix each week. And the little one will not eat anything that she deems cute-no heart sandwiches or cute giraffes for her.

  • I’d be so screwed if there was a bento store near me, so screwed. I can resist online shopping but in person? It would be m madly grabbing everything like that old show Supermarket sweep

    Wendy, I love your blog! (So does my husband – he didn’t know what I was looking at and said “whoa, cute blog – link me”.) Anyhoo, these bentos look brilliant. You should totally sell self-published glossy bento books….

    Nolo misses you. 🙁

    Wendy, maybe instead of red peppers to jazz up the salad you could use carrot shapes or fruit shapes. Like apple pieces cut into stars with a couple of those cute picks stuck into them? Of course, being at the bottom of the barrel means you just might have to go with red peppers that day!
