Pierce started preschool this week. One of the things I was excited about was packing his lunches. Pierce's lunches have to be kosher, so he can have dairy products but no meats. I wanted to make them extra fun, so I've been ordering tons of bento supplies from Japan through Ebay. I'm still waiting on a few things to arrive.
Then, something really cool happened; I got lucky. Because I won this awesome bento goodie giveaway over at A Pocket Full of Buttons. Go check her out HERE.
Can't wait to put these things to good use.
So for Pierce's first bento lunch, I picked the piggy bento box that we ordered from Japan. It's a double tiered bento.
In the top tier, he had a ghosty egg on a bed of lettuce, and grapes with a cheese heart.
The bottom tier had fluffernutter roll ups with an elephant pick, yellow cherry tomatoes with another cheese heart, cucumbers, and a dog full of ranch dressing for dipping his veggies.
On the side Pierce had some go-gurt (which grosses me out but he loves it) and a Roarin' Waters Capri Sun.
The teachers told me first thing when I walked in to pick him up that they were very impressed with his lunch. Meanwhile, Pierce himself was ignoring his lunch but trying to steal the Ritz crackers off the kid beside him. Oh well, I tried, right? ;-)
