The Week in Bentos: August 8-12, 2011

by Wendy Copley on August 12, 2011

Phwew! Summer’s almost coming to an end. Can you believe it? This was Wyatt’s last week at day camp and Augie’s last week at his beloved day care. (sniff!) Next week we are going to be on “vacation”, doing fun things around the Bay Area and then the week after that it’s back to school for Wyatt and the start of preschool for Augie! Exciting times!

Monday

Day Camp Snack #170

Monday’s day camp snack was whole wheat crackers, some cheese stars (layered in between the crackers) andĀ  blueberries.

Tuesday

Toddler Bento #138

On Tuesday, Augie’s lunch for day care was snap peas, leftover orzo with butter and garlic, leftover bbq chicken (cut from the bone) and blueberries.

Day Camp Snack #171

Wyatt’s snack was blueberries, graham crackers and an individually wrapped licorice stick for a treat.

Wednesday

Toddler Bento #139

On Wednesday, Augie had grape tomatoes, deli turkey roll-ups, a store-bought yaki onigiri rice ball from the freezer and peas. (His daycare provider heats the peas for him.)

Wyatt had crackers and an apple, but I didn’t take a picture because we were in a big rush and it was boring.

Thursday

Day Camp Snack #172

On Thursday, Wyatt took turkey roll-ups and Scrabble Cheez-its for his snack.

Friday

Day Camp Snack #173: Bey Blade!

Wyatt is newly obsessed with Beyblades and the kids love to play with them on their snack breaks at camp, so I attempted to make him a Beyblade bento today — “attempted” being the key word here rather than “successful”. I wrote “Thunder Libra” the name of his Beyblade on his tofu with food-safe markers, along with a drawing of the Libra scales. When I showed it to him and asked him what he thought about it, he said “What is that?” even though his Beyblade was in his hand. Ha! Once I explained it to him, he acted like he thought it was pretty cool, but I suspect he was just being polite.

As I said, the boys are not in camp/school/day care next week so I probably won’t be packing many lunches, but look for a week long series of posts about some bento basics and answers to questions that I am asked a lot! See you soon!

    I have to tell you how much I love your website! Ā I’ve been looking through bento blogs for a while now for inspiration, but nothing seemed very realistic to me with three kids and a 7 am deadline for preparation. Ā As soon as I saw your photos, I finally found inspiration. Ā Simple, cute, fun and yummy without going nuts. Ā I hope you hear all that as a compliment, as it’s meant to be! Ā Thanks for all your photos, videos and musings – they are a huge help!
