The Week in Bentos: November 24-25, 2014

by Wendy Copley on November 26, 2014

I’ve got a short and sweet little lunch round-up for you today. The kids are off school for the rest of the week, so I’m going to share Monday and Tuesday’s lunches for you today and spend the rest of the week relaxing with the family.

But stay tuned: I’ve got a fun post coming on Monday that will get your holiday season off to a great start!

Taco Monday Lunch

Wyatt is my leftovers kid so on Monday morning he opted to take the last bits of Sunday night’s taco dinner in his lunch. He had a couple of taco shells in the main compartment of our EasyLunchboxes bento box, along with some dried pineapple chunks and a silicone cup filled with chopped apple. The side containers held carrots and ranch dip and leftover ground beef and cheese.

Lots of Choices LunchBots Lunch

Augie took our new LunchBots Cinco for a spin and I managed to pack seven different foods into it! He had carrots, apple chunks, dried pineapple rings, sliced bratwurst, sugar snap peas, cucumbers and a Z-Bar.

Kindy Snack

For snack time he had snowflake Ritz crackers, a couple purple tomatoes and more cucumber.


Chili Monster Thermos Lunch

On Tuesday, Wyatt had leftover chili in the big LunchBots thermal jar. I packed his sides in a LunchBots Trio: grated cheese for the chili (with some icing googly eyes on top for a little fun), apple chunks with a “W” carved into one, festive Ritz crackers and strawberries with a turkey pick poked into them as a nod to Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Pre-Thanksgiving Snack

Augie had snowflake Ritz crackers and strawberries with a turkey pick for his snack. This was packed in our Steeltainer snack-size box.

I hope everyone who celebrates has a happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. You know what I’m thankful for? You! Thank you so much for visiting me here at Wendolonia!
