The Week in Bentos: July 25-29, 2011

by Wendy Copley on July 29, 2011

Before we get into this week’s lunches and snacks, can I ask a favor? I’m making a few changes around here and I’d love it if you could spare a couple minutes to take a survey about Wendolonia (seriously, it won’t take more than 5 minutes — tops). I would really appreciate it!

On to the boxes!


Day Camp Snack #163

Monday’s snack for day camp was a big handful of organic strawberries, whole wheat pretzels and a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese to dip the pretzels in.


Toddler Bento #133

On Tuesday, I packed Augie’s lunch in a newer single layer bento box that hasn’t seen much use yet. He took frozen mixed veggies (his daycare provider heats them for him), turkey meatballs cut into chunks, garlic naan cut into heart shapes and some mission figs.

There’s a fig tree in the backyard of our new house that’s got a ton of unripe fruit on it right now. I have no idea if the fruit will be any good, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed — especially since I found out Augie is a fig fan. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Day Camp Snack #164

Wyatt’s snack was super simple: strawberries and garlic naan cut into stars.


Toddler Bento #134

On Wednesday, Augie took the bento box from my new blog header for lunch. He had strawberries, baked teriyaki tofu cut into giraffes and decorated with food safe markers, frozen peas, a rice ball with a nori smiley face, and more strawberries.

Wyatt had some strawberries and a yogurt tube for his snack but I forgot to take a picture.


Day Camp Snack #165

Thursday’s snack: deli turkey and pretzel sticks. You don’t get any simpler than that!


Day Camp Snack #166

This was a big day in the Wendolonia kitchen! Wyatt asked if he could pack his own snack! I told him that would be fine as long as it was healthy so he set to work and this is what he came up with. He picked the box, chose what to put in it, cut the tops off the strawberries and arranged everything in the box. He even picked out paper and took the pictures!

I think he did a great job and as of today I’m retiring from blogging and passing the family blogging business along to my elder child. I’ll continue to hold a majority share of the stock and sit on the board, but as of today the day to day operations of Wendolonia will be handled by Wyatt when he isn’t busy with his day camp-related activities.

Ha ha! JK!
