Daily Bento

Let’s go ahead and discuss what you’re all already thinking, shall we?

Yes, those are new picks and you can find them here.

Seriously, though – that slice of pie looks huge in this picture. I know.

I assure you, it’s really a much smaller piece than it seems. I blame the whole thing on perspective or my lackluster early morning photography skills.

Yes, pretty sure it’s one of those things.

My shortcomings aside, the kiddo has a thermos full of chicken apple sausage, roasted potatoes, and sweet bell peppers. In her adorable pink house bento, she has mandarin slices, and a monstrous piece of chocolate pie. 😉

We packed it all up, along with her water bottle in our new purple insulated lunch bag from Easy Lunchboxes.

Since today is its maiden voyage, I thought I’d share some hastily snapped pictures with you.


Easy Lunchboxes Insulated Cooler Bag


Everything fits with plenty of room to spare.

Once her cooler bag arrived, I took Camryn to the craft store and let her pick out stickers and a few iron-on appliques to decorate her bag.



She used fabric glue to attach the appliques which was much easier than actually ironing them on.



They’re not all perfectly straight but she had a great time decorating her bag and it gave us half an hour or so of artsy craftsy girl time.








Daily Bento

Today’s lunch might seem odd… especially for a six-year-old.

What you see pictured above in Cam’s thermos are the reheated leftovers from last night’s dinner: Pumpkin polenta with roasted brussels sprouts.

I also roasted some cremini mushrooms along with the sprouts but Cam isn’t a fan of mushrooms so those didn’t go into today’s lunch.

I had a spur of the moment dinner idea last night and ran with it. Luckily it worked out and everyone loved it, especially Camryn.

She specifically requested that I send it for lunch today.

What kid asks for brussels sprouts for lunch?

She’s awesome.

In addition to her polenta and sprouts, I filled her Lunchbots Trio with fresh strawberries and tomatoes, sliced sweet peppers, a Babybel, and some cheese crackers.






♥ A Very Special Lunch ♥

25 Apr

Today is Camryn’s 6th birthday!

So I made her a fun and festive lunch to celebrate her special day.

For her birthday lunch today, Cam has popcorn chips, strawberries, a party grape, a party tomato, and a cupcake.

She also has organic mac n’ cheese in her thermos:

I went to the craft store yesterday and bought a huge pack of birthday themed scrap booking stickers for $2.40 after coupon to help cuten up her lunch. I still have quite a few left over so I’ll put them away for next year’s lunch.
