The Week in Bento: May 26-29, 2009

Preschool Bento #185: May 26, 2009

Tuesday I tried a new kind of baked tofu out on Wyatt: honey sesame. You’d think that would go over well, but he hated it and made a point of telling me when he got home. I’m having a bit of a baked tofu crisis. Trader Joe’s cut it’s baked tofu offerings from 3 flavors to one in the course of a week and when I went searching at Lucky (which used to have 5 or 6 flavors) they only had one kind too. Are all the baked tofu manufacturers suffering in the economy or something?? Anyway, I also sent a hot dog bun, cheesy crackers and grapes — all of which were eaten.

Yay! Summer is here! At least it is at the markets. Wednesday’s lunch had sweet, wonderful corn cut off the cob from dinner leftovers, cherries, a lemon ginger scone and some salami.

Thursday’s lunch marked the return of blueberries which are now, finally available at an affordable price. I also sent toasted pita wedges, a cheese stick and more salami.

Friday Wyatt agreed to having a sandwich in his lunch which he hasn’t approved of in ages. I made it exactly to his specifications: hambuger bun with salami — and only salami — inside. He also took blueberries and some grapes.

Have a great weekend!

    I have never ever found the flavored tofu anywhere I have shopped. But do not think for one minute that has lessened my desire for it!! And you did that tutorial on how to flavor it, but I never tried it. I may go back through your old posts and try it. Aren’t you glad summer is here and the fruits and veggies are so good?

    Thanks for the link from Berkeley Parents Network. As a mom to a somewhat picky preschooler (her first day at school will be in 2 weeks), your photos have given me great ideas and confidence that I can make fun, simple, healthy lunches too. Go Wendolonia!

    Hi-Just saw a link to your site. I have both bought the TJ’s baked tofu and made my own. My own preschooler (who is a pretty good eater) prefers the one I make. TJ’s Teriyaki sauce on extra firm tofu, baked for awhile. I got 350 for 1/2 or so, just put lots of sauce. Comes out less dry than the packaged version and is much less $$.

  • Have you made salt and pepper tofu? I’ve been making it in sticks and slabs for sandwiches and keeping it in the fridge. It’s SOOOOOOOO good. Might be my fav ever.
