The Week in Bentos: September 21-25, 2009

Monday:

Kindergarten Snack #13: September 22, 2009

Wyatt’s snack on Monday was some cheese crackers, ham roll-ups and some apple slices. I didn’t have any lemonade, so I squeezed a lime wedge into a little water and gave the slices a quick dip. This kept them from browning and didn’t effect the taste too much. (I know because the apples came home from school un-eaten and Wyatt had them for his snack while he did his homework. Can you believe that a Kindergartner has homework?? Sheesh.)

The Lego construction worker helped build Wyatt’s lunch on Tuesday. He hoisted the strawberries in with a crane, tucked a couple of Hello Panda candies into the pink box, then got his crew to put in the pita crackers and a mini blueberry muffin. He had a specialist in decorative finishes fold the salami and add that. He knows the limitations in his skill set, after all.

Kindergarten Snack #14: September 22, 2009

Snack was assembled by me under the Lego construction worker’s supervision while he drank a cup of Lego coffee and talked on his handheld radio (I’m an apprentice so he needs to keep a close eye on me). There were dried cranberries, grapes from the farmer’s market and a cheddar cheese twist.

Wednesday:

Kindergartner Bento #239: September 23, 2009

Wednesday’s lunch featured four of the five tomatoes we’ve harvested from our tomato plants this year, along with some baked teriyaki tofu cut into strips, a few strawberries and half a mini baguette.

About those baguettes…. I’ve been buying them for a couple of weeks now and when I looked at this most recent package, there was a big star on it that said something along the lines of, “These baguettes are slightly under-baked. Heat them in the oven for 3-4 minutes before eating them.” Now they tell me! I’ve been sending raw bread dough to school with Wyatt and he’s been eating it! I thought they looked a little pale and I’ve actually checked the packaging a few times to see if they were par-baked and there was NOTHING on there about that before this week. Poor little Wyatt sitting at school with his lump of dough to eat….

Wednesday’s snack was a cheddar cheese twist, grapes, a mini blueberry muffin and one lone strawberry to fill the last bit of space and keep everything from rolling around the box.

Thursday:

Kindergarten Bento #240: September 24, 2009

Thursday’s lunch and snack were combined in the laptop lunchbox. When I do this, I’m really just packing him an enormous lunch. I don’t actually designate any one thing as “snack” and another as “lunch”. This one had a toasted mini baguette, salami, strawberries, a few Panda candies, a mini muffin, broccoli and a rice bear and star decorated with catsup.

Friday:

Friday’s snack was a few slices of salami, raspberries, and some cheddar twists.
