Thursday 2/9/12 - Made these bentos the night before to eat between Little Gym and preschool. And any leftovers as an after-school snack.
|Z's lunch: Ham skewers, Special K Crackers, mini cupcake, green beans w/|
carrot hearts, black-and-raspberries, Colby Jack cheese shreds
I made extra carrot hearts from the You're All Heart lunch, and stored them in the fridge with a little water to keep them moist. Still good! So I lay them atop the green beans, just to be cute... and use them up!
For the ham skewers, I just sliced the ham into fourths lengthwise and rippled it onto the skewers, stacking 2 to 3 strips per skewer.
|My lunch: spinach salad w/ blueberries, carrot flower shred |
scraps, and carrot flowers, raspberry vinaigrette in Smidget;
string cheese nibblets, Special K crackers, mini cupcake
Naturally, she remembered the next day, after we were all strapped into the car and ready to leave. "Hey. Where's that chickie you promised in my beautiful lunch?" I had even found it tucked into my bag and had pulled it out and put it away. Argh. So I trekked back inside, scooped a few rainbow jimmies sprinkles into it to make up for "forgetting," and schlepped back out. Finally! Off we go!
Cupcake wrapper and pick, and BPA-free plastic fork from Dollar Tree. Plastic heart picks from random Asian grocery. Mini cupcakes from Albertson's. My salad dressing is in a Tupperware Smidget. Both lunches in our EasyLunchboxes.
