The Week in Bentos: June 28 – July 2, 2010

Monday

Day Camp Snack #112: June 28, 2010

Monday’s snack box had strawberries and these weird little guys that Wyatt invented. They are ham chunks on pretzel sticks. He described them to me in detail last week, so I bought the stuff for them when I went to the store. He calls them, “meat lollipops” but I prefer to think of them as “ham-mers” because it makes me laugh.

Not that “meat lollipops” isn’t funny too…

Tuesday

Toddler Bento #29: June 29, 2010

Augie was back in fighting shape this week, so he was back to day care. This lunch had leftover green beans, a purchased onigiri rice ball, chunks of London Broil (also leftover from dinner the night before, grapes and blueberries.

Day Camp Snack #113: June 29, 2010

Wyatt’s snack had ham cubes, a box of raisins, and graham cracker pieces. The kids are suddenly completely crazy for these little boxes of raisins. Augie will carry one around for two hours eating one raisin at a time, savoring each and every one.

Wednesday

Toddler Bento #30: June 30, 2010

The toddler lunch had star-shaped rice balls, chopped chicken thigh (leftover from dinner), frozen corn and strawberries.

This was the first time ever — since Augie started going to daycare — that any food came home in his lunch box. His babysitter told me she was surprised because he always eats everything and he ate almost nothing at this meal. He must have been hungry by the time he got home though because he ate 4ths at dinner that night.

Day Camp Snack #114: June 30, 2010

Blueberries and ham-mers! Wooo!

Thursday

I forgot to take a picture of Thursday’s day camp snack! I sent a cup of yogurt (Wyatt’s request), some pretzels and some grapes.

Friday

Day Camp Snack #115: July 2, 2010

Today’s snack box featured apple-flavored mini rice cakes, strawberries and some deli turkey. I’ve been having problems with my deli turkey breaking apart lately, so instead of rolling it up like I usually do I had to just kind of wad it up in a ball and stuff it in the box.

    Sunny Select raisins! Sunny Select! Savemart? It's been a very long time since I've seen that logo. Now I'm feeling a little homesick. :)

    Cute bentos. Love Wyatt's little invention.

    When I was a kid my mom would create a little snack for me when I got home from school: raisins, nuts, dried bananas. I would savor each little morsel to make it last through an episode of Sesame Street and Mr. Dress-up. I can identify with Augie.

    I'm sure your kids could find much less healthy special snacks than raisins! That's cute! Also cute is that Wyatt is taking such interest in his lunch creations :) I like how snugly the rice cakes fit into the last snack bento :)
