The Week in Bentos: July 2-6, 2012

by Wendy Copley on July 6, 2012

Here are the lunches I packed for the boys during this very short week:

Monday

Wyatt was home from camp because he had an infected bee sting on his foot and we were all crabby.

Tuesday

Preschool Bento Box #295

Tuesday, Augie had a squirrely lunch: turkey and soy cheese squirrel sandwiches with a little acorn decoration, green grapes, raspberries, blackberries, and celery sticks.

Summer Camp Bento Box #616

Wyatt had raspberries, blackberries, grapes, Chex party mix and a turkey and may sandwich.

Wednesday

4th of July! Woo hoo! Happy birthday, America!

Thursday

Preschool Bento Box #296

Augie’s lunch on Thursday was packed in the panda bento box: grapes, a turkey and mayo sandwich shaped like an “A”, celery, carrots and mini goldfish crackers.

Summer Camp Bento Box #617

Wyatt had exactly the same lunch except his was packed in our Laptop Lunch box. I also added in some cape gooseberries that a friend gave us the day before.

Have you eaten a cape gooseberry before? I had never seen or tried one until this week. They are very pretty and come in paper husk that looks a bit like a Chinese lantern. In fact, when I saw them on the table at the potluck we were attending I thought they were a decorative centerpiece! The fruit inside is a little tart and tastes a bit like citrus or pineapple. Very yummy! Wyatt liked them enough to ask for them in his lunch, but not enough to eat them because they came home untouched.

Friday

Preschool Bento Box #297

Today, I packed Augie’s lunch in our long neglected Jelly Belly bento box: meatballs, cucumber chunks, strawberries and goldfish crackers.

Summer Camp Bento Box #618

Wyatt’s lunch had strawberries, mandarin orange wedges, wheat thins, goldfish and meatballs.

Have a great weekend!

    The cape gooseberries look like teeny orange tomatillas. Are they related do you think?
