The Week in Bentos: November 15-19, 2010

Hey there! Would you be willing to vote for my Raspberry Carrot Raisin Slaw in the Let’s re-Do Lunch Contest? I’d think you were swell if you did!


Monday

First Grader Bento #387: November 15, 2010

Hooray! Clementines are back in the stores! In the interim between berry season and clementine season I’ve had to scramble a bit to find nice fruit for the kids’ lunch boxes. Wyatt has completely rejected bananas in his lunch box and apples are a bit of a challenge too. Clementines are our reliable winter standby.

Anywho, this was Wyatt’s lunch for Monday: clementines, applesauce and a thermos full of pasta. This was packed in the OOTS Lunchbox.

Tuesday

Toddler Bento #69: November 16, 2010

The two-year-old’s lunch had an onigiri rice ball (pulled from the freezer), clementines, leftover hoisin chicken from dinner and sesame green beans, also from dinner. He didn’t eat either the chicken or the green beans which is interesting because he liked both at dinner and also because I can count on one hand the number of times his lunch box hasn’t come home completely empty.

First Grader Bento #388: November 16, 2010

My 1st grader’s lunch had apples (soaked in a little water and lemon juice to prevent browning), pretzel thins and a Laughing Cow cheese wedge, clementine wedges, and turkey and cheese Star Wars sandwiches. This was packed in a Laptop Lunch Box.

Wednesday

Toddler Bento #70: November 17, 2010

On Wednesday, Augie’s lunch was clementines, another onigiri, soycatash and leftover chicken from dinner. We had a lot of chicken this week.

Wyatt chose to have school lunch this day. The entree was cheesy bread.

1st Grade Snack #146: November 17, 2010

I packed him a snack too because he was going to his after school program: homemade applesauce and pretzel thins with Laughing Cow cheese. He didn’t even touch his snack.

Thursday

We woke up late and I hadn’t packed lunch the night before, so Wyatt had school lunch again. It was super nutritious:

  • French bread pizza
  • Baked Doritos
  • Juice
  • Chocolate milk
  • Animal “kookies”

I didn’t pack a snack because he told me he wouldn’t eat it and I believed him.

Friday

First Grader Bento #389: November 19, 2010

Today’s super star 1st grader lunch had garlic naan and catsup sandwiches cut into star shapes, baked teriyaki tofu, grapes, clementine wedges and a fruit leather star to finish off the star theme. This lunch was packed in the Easy Lunch Box.

    I look forward to your posts every Friday – thanks for the eye candy! I’m always intrigued at the items themselves too – would you share recipes? Hoisin chicken sounds soo yummy! Do you make the naan? Do you make or purchase onigiri? the Applesauce? Give us more!

  • I haven’t seen clementines pop up in the stores here yet, but I know they will soon! I’ve been very surprised about the lovely strawberries that we keep getting though! They are gorgeous!
    Lovely lunches as always!

    You have smooth cracked me up. I would have believed him, too. Especially if I had overslept. Love it. As usual, you rock!! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!! I can not help but wonder if turkey will make it’s way to school with the boys!!

    I am so amazed seeing all the creative lunches you pack! Its amazing – right from the halloween lunch box to the star wars characters’ cheese sandwiches. I have a toddler starting preschool and I am looking forward to get lots of ideas in making my little one’s lunch interesting and fun.
