The Short Week in Bentos: November 21-23, 2011

by Wendy Copley on November 23, 2011

We’ve got a short week because of the holiday, so I’m posting this week’s lunches early.


No lunches Monday. Augie wasn’t in school and Wyatt had school lunch.


Second Grade Bento #515

On Tuesday, Wyatt had garlic naan cut into circle shapes, spacey goldfish crackers, cubes of leftover pork tenderloin, dried cranberries and clementine wedges. Someone asked me the other day why I always peel Wyatt’s oranges and the reason I do isn’t because he can’t do it himself — it’s because he only has about 10 minutes to eat lunch! If I left his clementine unpeeled there is no way he would have time to peel it and eat it. I try to do as many things as I can to allow him to be able to eat quickly and this is one of them!

Preschool Bento #185

Augie’s lunch had frozen peas (thawed in the fridge over night), pork tenderloin chunks, goldfish crackers, a bite of garlic naan and clementine wedges. The naan was cut out of the scraps leftover after I cut Wyatt’s bread.


Preschool Bento #186

Today Augie has cucumber sticks, green grapes, a garlic naan dude, deli ham roll-ups and a few goldfish pushed into the extra spaces. The cucumber is something new I’m trying out. I’ve tried to feed both of the kids cukes for years with no success but last week Augie saw one of his friends eating some and wanted to try. He decided he liked them and specifically asked me to buy a cucumber for his snack when we were at the grocery store the other day. Um…sure!
