The Week in Bentos: June 21-25, 2010

by Wendy Copley on June 25, 2010

I’ve only got Wyatt’s snack bentos for you this week. Augie has pneumonia so he hasn’t been going to day care. Poor Augie — he’s very, very crabby and I think he’s starting to get particularly irritated that I won’t let him play outside for very long.

On Monday, Wyatt took a snack box to camp with him that had cheese cubes, whole wheat pretzels and grapes.

Tuesday’s snack had fresh blackberries from the farmer’s market, more pretzels and a few slices of salami.

On Wednesday, I sent blueberries and pretzels wrapped with strips of deli turkey.

I had originally styled this photo with a couple of different Lego guys but when Wyatt saw it he got super excited and started rearranging everything. He spent about 5 minutes getting the motorcycle balanced on the onigiri box and another few minutes getting the hose the other guy is holding just so, so of course I had to use the photo that he arranged.

And then, Wednesday’s photo unleashed a monster! He spent all morning on Thursday building a huge, intricate Lego set to use for Thursday’s photo. But when it came time to take the picture, there wasn’t any room for his snack box so he directed me to put the box next to his Lego creation and get as much in as I possibly could. I did my best, but there were a lot of Lego creations on the table.

In any case, his snack had a turkey and mayo sandwich on a mini-hamburger bun (fantastic for bento!), cantaloupe chunks and a strawberry.

Today’s snack was Lego free. It had a banana chocolate chip muffin (healthier than most made with the Meal Makeover Moms recipe) and more blueberries.
