The Week in Bentos: October 24-28, 2011

by Wendy Copley on October 28, 2011

Only a few days left before Halloween and my kids are super excited. I was half-hearted about continuing the Halloween themes in the lunch boxes this week but you’ll see a few ideas down below.


2nd Grade Bento #501

On Monday, Wyatt took his lunch to school in an Easy Lunchbox: pretzel thins, a jack-o-lantern cookie, canned peaches that I drained and rinsed and topped with chocolate sprinkles, and a turkey and mayo jack-o-lantern sandwich.


Preschool Bento #169

On Tuesday, Augie had some garden tomatoes, baked tofu with car-shaped cut-outs, figs from our tree and pretzel thins.

2nd Grade Bento #502

Wyatt had a jack-o-lantern cookie, pretzel thins, peaches with rainbow sprinkles, raisins and baked tofu. This lunch was packed in the Laptop Lunch Box.


Preschool Bento #170

On Wednesday, Augie had strawberries (we’re still getting fantastic strawberries at our farmers’ market!), grapes, a mini PB&J Millenneum Falcon sandwich, deli turkey and a few pretzel thins. This was packed in a box that kind of a cross between this one and this one.

Big Kid Bento #503

Wyatt’s lunch was pretty similar: pretzel thins, jelly X-wing fighter and Death Star sandwiches, deli turkey roll-ups and strawberries.


Preschool Bento #171

Augie’s lunch was packed in a hinged lid box on Thursday. He had a blueberry cereal bar, garlic naan cut to look like little dudes, deli turkey and strawberries.

Wyatt had school lunch.


Preschool Bento #172

On Friday, Augie had leftover green beans and pork tenderloin chunks with cranberry-fig chutney from dinner the night before. I finished his lunch off with a mix of Cheerios and raisins and some strawberries.

Second Grade Bento #504

Waytt’s lunch had a couple of pumpkin cookies, strips of garlic naan, Cheerios and raisins, strawberries, grapes and baked tofu.

  • I love the jack-o-lantern sandwich and I just bought that same set of cutters but it is too big for the sandwich bread we normally buy. What brand do you use that you were able to get that super-large cutter to fit?

  • I buy the whole wheat fiber bread from Trader Joes or the Orowheat or Sara Lee equivalent usually. The cutter is too big for these kinds of bread too, but it mostly fits on it if I turn it at a little bit of an angle. If you look closely at the photo at the top, you can see a little bit of crust on the stem and bottom of the pumpkin where the cutter overhangs the bread though.
