The Week in Bentos: March 14-18, 2011

by Wendy Copley on March 18, 2011

This was a light week of lunches, but there was still a lot of interesting stuff going on with St. Patrick’s day and my field trip to school.


Monday Wyatt stayed home sick from school, so I didn’t pack a lunch for him.

On Tuesday, Augie’s lunch held: sliced deli turkey, frozen mixed veggies, grapes and mandarin orange wedges.

I went to school and at school lunch with Wyatt. You can read all about that here (with more pictures!).

Augie’s lunch on Wednesday was not the most photogenic one I’ve ever packed. He had salmon leftover from dinner, but after I packed his lunch he decided he didn’t like the topping so I scraped it off. This ended up making it look like cat food. I also packed rice, strawberries (the first of the year from the farmers’ market) and grapes.

I packed Wyatt a pre-St. Patrick’s Day lunch on Wednesday: a whole wheat dinner roll, grapes, Scrabble Cheez-its, strawberries, and a pot of cheddar cheese gold at the end of  a food marker tofu rainbow.

Wyatt’s actual St. Patrick’s day lunch was basically a repeat of the day before. I’m a firm believer in the notion that if you have a good idea once, it’s OK to repeat it again and again. The lunch held: mandarin orange wedges, grapes, a bun with a leprechaun drawn on with food-safe markers, strawberries and another food marker tofu rainbow with a pot of gold fish crackers at the end.

Today Wyatt’s lunch was packed in the Easy Lunchbox: turkey Star Wars sandwiches (I think that Yoda is the best one I’ve made yet!), a mandarin orange, grapes and strawberries, more Scrabble Cheez-its and a small brownie  in the little tub for a special treat.
