The Week in Bentos: November 2-6, 2009

by Wendy Copley on November 6, 2009

Sorry for the poor photo quality this week, gang. The rechargeable battery on our good camera died and the new one hasn’t arrived in the mail yet. I had to take all of my bento photos with a phone cam and there’s only so much I can do to fix them in Photoshop.

Monday:

On Monday I was making some carrots for Augie’s lunch and Wyatt decided he wanted to try one again to see if he liked them. He gave the carrot stick I gave him a thumbs up and asked for them in his snack, but when the box came home they were untouched.  Baby steps, I guess. He did eat the clementines and dried cranberries though.

Monday Night:

Monday night Wyatt went to child watch at the gym with his dad and he wanted to take his dinner with him. I packed potato slices, grapes, a hard-boiled egg that I’d molded into a car shape (I don’t think you can see it at all in this photo), a garlic naan and ketchup sandwich cut into a heart shape and some salami.

Tuesday:

No lunch Tuesday because school was canceled for parent-teacher conferences and Wyatt was home . If you’re wondering about his progress report, he’s doing fine.

Wednesday:

Kindgergartner Bento #257: November 4, 2009

Snack and lunch were combined in the big lunch box today. There was a jelly sandwich, applesauce with sprinkles, grapes, baked tofu and cinnamon pita crisps.

If you’re wondering how the applesauce did in the laptop lunchbox, I’ll tell you: it did very POORLY. When I opened his lunchbox to wash it, applesauce was everywhere inside. The fit on the outer box is supposed to be tight enough that when you close it, it acts like a lid for the inner boxes, but this was not how things worked. I’ll admit it’s possible that Wyatt’s lunch was swung around over his head or something, but I will not be packing wet stuff without a lid on it ever again.

Thursday:

Friday’s snack box had some rolled up deli turkey, a clementine and the last of the banana muffins.
