Daily Bento

2 Apr

Camryn helped me make dinner last night and she helped make the pizza rolls that went into today’s lunches so I thought this Lunchbox Love note was perfect.

She loves to help out in the kitchen and I’m a firm believer in getting kids involved in cooking and baking as early as possible. She still can’t quite reach the counter but with the help of a step stool she can certainly wash and snap beans, turn on the stand mixer, add ingredients to a bowl, stir things, strip kale leaves off of the stem, add pizza toppings to dough and then help me roll it up, and so many other things.

So in her lunch today she has two of the pizza rolls we made together last night. It’s just regular pizza dough with pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni on top. The dough is rolled up, sliced, and baked in a muffin tin until done. My kids love these. I actually make a version of these roll ups quite often for them using store-bought or homemade pizza dough. I just fill it with whatever pizza toppings or lunch meat and cheese I have in my fridge. Easy peasy.

Recently I came across this recipe and thought it was genius. Why hadn’t I thought of it!? I tried it about a week ago using spinach, carrots, mushrooms, and bell peppers and my kids loved it. So if you’re looking for a way to get more veggies into your kids, here you go.

Along with her pizza rolls, Cam has a fruit salad (grapes, orange segments, pineapple, strawberries), sweet pepper rings, and an apple cinnamon flapjack from our Graze box.
