The Week in Bentos: June 11-15, 2012

by Wendy Copley on June 15, 2012

This was our first week of summer vacation so we did our best to take it easy. I let Wyatt stay home for the week instead of sending him right off to day camp and we tried to do at least one fun activity every day. Augie was on his usual preschool schedule though so I have some of his lunches to share. Monday he informed me that he loves the celery his teacher gives him for snack sometimes at school, so I picked up a bunch for his lunches. The kid was not exaggerating — he asked for it in every lunch and for every snack all week long!


No camp or daycare on Monday so we went to the beach. I forgot to take a picture of the lunch I packed, but we had sandwiches, Chex mix and grapes. It was very utilitarian and not cute or attractive in any way.

On Tuesday, Augie was back to preschool so I packed him a lunch in the Lego bento box: celery sticks with peanut butter, blueberries, cucumber slices, white cheddar Cheez-its and leftover pork chop that I cut into chunks and threaded onto a couple of summery picks. (The picks were from the dollar spot at Target and they still had them when I was in there last week.)

On Wednesday, Augie had grapes, golden raspberries from the farmers’ market, blueberries, sliced deli turkey and celery with peanut butter.

Thursday’s lunch was red and yellow raspberries, more turkey with a soy cheese teddy bear cut-out, some trail mix, white cheddar Cheez-its and — gasp! — celery with peanut butter.

He finished off the week with pita crackers, raisins, celery with peanut butter (for a change) and a half sandwich with peanut butter and apple butter on it.
