Can you believe it? I remembered to take a picture of a Monday snack! Wooo! This one had a slice of watermelon, some whole grain crackers and a clementine.
Wyatt got a hot lunch in the thermos on Tuesday. You know how I’ve been sending him with those rice balls? Well, this morning he told me that he hates them! I have to admit that I was surprised because he’s a big rice-eater at home and I’ve been sending them in his lunch for years now and he’s never said a word. But it does explain why he rarely takes more than a bite out of them. I’m not always the sharpest tack in the box, I don’t think…
So anyway, he told me he does like warm rice so I heated one portion up in the microwave until it was piping hot and put it in his thermos along with some teriyaki pineapple meatballs. I also sent a slice of bread and some robot attack jam (in the little yellow box), as well as some strawberries and blueberries.
Oh, and for the record, he didn’t eat the rice. Furthermore, he was upset that his meatballs were touching the rice.
The toddler’s lunch box had diced, roasted chicken, veggie medley of corn, carrots, and green beans, rice, strawberries and blueberries.
Wow! This was a really beige lunchbox! I didn’t really notice until I looked at this picture.
The lunch portion of this box had an apple cinnamon scone, clementines and baked tofu. The two snack boxes had an apple cereal bar, blueberries, cheddar cheese slices and pretzel sticks.
Augie’s lunch had flaked sauteed salmon leftover from Tuesday’s dinner, peas, a half a cinnamon apple scone and blueberries.
Thursday’s lunch and snacks repeated a lot of items from earlier in the week: clementine, whole wheat pretzel sticks, banana chunks, and corn and meatballs in the thermos. I had very specific instructions about leaving the rice out of the thermos and I had to show Wyatt the contents before he would let me close it up and put it in his lunch box. Sheesh!
Friday’s snack was simple as can be — just some strawberries and a few pita crackers.
In other bento news, the Miami Herald published an article about bento boxes yesterday. They illustrated it with boxes made by some of my favorite bento artists (along with a few of my photos). It’s worth a minute of your time to check it out because it’s really quite lovely! You can see it here:
