The Week in Bentos: July 21-24, 2009

by Wendy Copley on July 25, 2009

Whew! I’m late with this post! Last week was a busy week for me so I’m way behind on my blogging.

I don’t have a photo for Tuesday’s lunch because I sent garlic butter noodles in a thermos with a side car of blueberries. It was too boring for me to photograph. I just couldn’t do it. So you’ll have to use your imaginations.

Wednesday, I toasted a mini-pita, put a little bit of  butter and garlic salt on it and cut it into wedges. I also put blueberries and salami into the box.

Thursday there were more blueberries (I got a gigantic box at Costco), a turkey hot dog, a little container of catsup and a half a hambuger bun.

Friday I made a catsup sandwich with some garlic naan we had leftover from dinner the night before. The catsup sandwiches really gross me out, but it’s harmless and it’s not my lunch, so I put them in his lunch whenever he asks. He also got some strawberries and a few deli ham roll-ups.

    I posted on another page but I'm not sure if you will get it.
    But I love your site and had a few questions.
    I ordered a box and it seems small what size are yours. Does his food shift or stay put? What type of lunch box do you fit these boxes in?

    Thanks for your great ideas.

  • Hi! Thanks for your comment. The boxes are very small. The ones I use vary in size, but an average sized box is about 4 x 6 inches and a little less than 2 inches deep. One of the keys to keeping the food from shifting around in transit is to pack the box very tightly and right up to the top edge. I think you'll find when you do that that *a lot* of food fits in the box. Also keep in mind that you're packing lunch for a preschooler who's appetite is (probably) pretty small. These boxes wouldn't be appropriately sized for an adult. The ones I use for myself are quite a bit bigger.

    Hi Wendy. I have sent your blog on to several preschool friends. We all agree we hope Wyatt is not in our kids' class next year. You have set the lunchbox bar way too high. 🙂
