Here we go again, Monday. This weekend flew by, but I’m not really sure where it flew off to. It’s okay another one is right around the corner. In the meantime, I’ll pass the time making bentos for The Girls. Yesterday I managed to snap another (can you believe it) picture of The Oldest’s lunch. I must really be on a roll.
In her lunch she had sliced green grapes in a cute spider silicone cup that I purchased at Target. They were $4.99 for six. These a pretty cool with little legs coming off the side of the cups, I may actually have to make cupcakes in them. For sure jello. The ghost flags are from The Dollar Tree, I can usually find pretty neat seasonal items there. In this tier she also has some baby Swiss flavored Cheez-its. In the bottom tier she has left over creamy garlic pasta and chicken cutlet from the night before’s dinner. Baby carrots round out the bottom tier. That gorgeous star cookie was from a batch we made over the weekend, The Oldest decorated this one herself. Pretty good don’t you think?
The Youngest’s lunch was pretty much the same thing, here a picture of her morning snack yesterday.
She has a stacked cheese star, some Halloween marshmallows, some checkerboard apples and ed and green grapes on jack o’ lantern and skull and crossbones picks. All packed in our trusty “4 square” lock n lock box. I love this thing!
Here is a picture of The Youngest’s Trashless Tuesday snack today, she’s buying grilled cheese at school for lunch today. The Oldest packed her own non-bento lunch today. I was helping The Youngest get ready for before school tennis clinic that starts at her school today. She was very excited. In another note, I’m really starting to make this trashless thing a good habit, I’ve found us using reusable drink containers even when it isn’t Tuesday. As a bonus its saving me money on juice boxes too!
In our trusty lock n lock again, she has a stacked cheese flower, some cute Halloween sugar cookies, green grapes with a cute frog fork, and a Clementine “flower”, with one of our homemade birdy picks. (click here for the how to) She watched me pack this and was nibbling on the little cheese scraps while telling me that she couldn’t wait to have it and was not going to eat a big breakfast so she could eat it after tennis for breakfast at her morning snack. Whatever works right?
Well I’m off to work,
Have a great day,
