OK, I promise not to occupy all my posts with these Bento lunches I am doing, but it’s just so fun! I am on day three and I am only going to post through Friday the different lunches I do.
I also want to note that my oldest refuses to take a reusable lunch bag so I have to pack his lunches in paper sacks and disposable plastic baggies. I don’t know how I’m going to keep his lunches interesting because it limits the food items I can send with him. I am thinking about finding a restaurant supply store to see what inexpensive options exist for disposable containers.
Today I visited the Asian Food Market on the northern end of the city to see if I could find any bento systems. I DID find a couple of options, but, I’m going to keep looking.
So without further ado, Wednesday’s lunch will consist of leftover spaghetti and meat sauce for Josh with salad, a slice of french bread (which I didn’t put in until after I took my photo), a fresh fruit cup, and some fruit gushers. Evelyn refused the spaghetti and asked for another ham sandy with chips. By the way, neither child likes tomatoes, but I needed red other than the strawberry to make the meal look appetizing. I solved this problem by using a small celery heart in Evelyn’s salad to hold three very thin slices of tomato. I am hoping she thinks they are red bell pepper, which she loves, and will accidentally eat them and discover that she actually likes tomatoes. Haha! I can only hope, right? I just put one very thin slice of tomato on Josh’s because I know he won’t touch it except to move it aside.
So that’s it! I also put some Glad Wrap over the top of the side with the salad and fruit to make sure nothing moves. Apparently, Evelyn opened her box today and all her strawberries fell on her lap! Oopsie! 🙂 Also, I need to find some tiny containers to hold the dressing so the salad doesn’t get soggy.
Well, that’s all for now. Until tomorrow!
