Bento Update: The Ones from Last Week

by Wendy Copley on July 14, 2011

My mom and dad were here visiting last week so we’ve been having lots of Grandma and Grandpa-style fun. I kept Wyatt out of camp and reduced Augie’s day care schedule, so I haven’t been packing many lunches. Still, I did put a couple of lunches together for August so I thought I’d share them before diving into our regular routine again next week.

First up: this cute little tofu-man lunch! I cut a couple of people out of tofu with a tiny gingerbread man cutter, flipped the tofu over to show the white side and decorated them with food safe markers.  I also added grapes, blueberries, soycatash, and a yaki onigiri rice ball from the freezer.

Here’s the other lunch I packed for my little buddy: soycatash, raspberries, blackberries, and funky pasta. I had already put the water and sauce on when I discovered that we didn’t have any normal pasta. I had to think fast, so I grabbed a couple of half-filled boxes of  lasagna noodles, broke them into pieces and cooked those. I actually liked it but I don’t think anyone else was super happy with it.

In other news, I’d also like to invite you to participate in a live chat with me and a bunch of other cool ladies in the Horizon Healthy Families Back to School Community tonight from 6-7 pm PDT. There will be discussion about saving money on back to school shopping, easy weeknight dinners, and a lots of prizes (like a $100 Target gift card). Join us!
