Daily Bento

17 Apr

As promised yesterday, I have a new lunchbox to show you.

Yes, another lunch box.

You can’t possibly be surprised at this point.

Or maybe you’re new to this blog. In that case – Hello. Nice to see you, I’m glad you stopped by. Additionally, you should know that I hoard lunch boxes.

I suppose hoarding may be taking it a little too far. Can it actually be called hoarding if all of the lunch containers and bento accessories are neatly organized and out of sight in my kitchen? I mean, no one is having to actually climb over or wade through a mountain of lunch packing accessories to get from the front door to the kitchen so…

Maybe we can just call it a lack of self-control fueled by a deep love of all things bento-related instead.

I do think I’m done buying  lunch boxes for a while though.

Or at least until I can free up some cabinet space.

You know, I hardly use my immersion blender. 😉

 

Anyway, here’s the latest addition to my ever-growing lunch stash:

Laptop Lunches Bento Lunch Box 2.0 – Garden

Isn’t it bright and cheery?

In this Laptop lunch:

  • Biscoff sandwiches
  • Greek yogurt with goji berries and granola
  • Saltines with tzatziki in the yellow container
  • Pineapple and grapes
  • Napkin and spoon

With the lids on…

and with stickers on top, just because.

 

So what do we think?

The only thing that I don’t like about the Laptop Lunchbox is that Camryn has a hard time opening the containers inside. I put a little vegetable oil on the rim of each box which did make it much easier for me to open but she still struggled at school. Luckily there are helpers in the lunchroom for just this sort of situation.  This is just one of those things that will be easier for her with practice.

Now, on to a convenient bullet-point list of what we love about it:

  • We ♥ that it’s leak-proof.
  • We ♥ that it’s BPA, PVC & lead free.
  • We ♥ that it’s dishwasher safe & microwave safe.
  • We ♥ the lids on the inner containers.
  • We ♥ that it’s small enough for kids to use but could easily hold enough food for an adult as well.
  • We ♥ that it’s bright and colorful.
  • We ♥ that it’s recycled and recyclable.
  • We ♥ that the food containers are made in the USA.
  • We ♥ that it’s waste-free.
  • I really ♥ that it has a special place for a napkin, spoon, fork, chopsticks, or a cheese stick.

This new lunchbox fits perfectly in Camryn’s insulated lunch bag from Garnet Hill (which is a bit on the larger side) but there wasn’t room for her thermos so I had to put it in the outside pocket. I will probably be buying this in the very near future:

*sigh* I know. The “hoarding” continues.

    I hoard lunchboxes too. I have a new one on the way! In fact, I have the item delivery card in my purse ready for the next time I’m home with enough time to go by the post office to pick it up. So exciting 🙂
