I still pack bento-style lunches for Pierce each week when he goes to preschool, I just haven't had a chance to blog about them. So I figured I'd take the day off from Muffin Tin Monday to share a bento lunch instead.
I recently found some cute lunch boxes on sale at J.C. Penney's for $3.99. In addition to the shark box, they also had a pink mermaid. The box is deep which is nice for larger items, and it has a tray that lifts off the top that is just the right size for a sandwich.
Pierce had a green egg (with I Am Sam drawn on by my food writers), two cheese skewers, a veggie calzone (stuffed with sneaky spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, garlic, tomato sauce and cheddar cheese - I'll post the recipe at some point because they are easy to make), 2 condiment containers - one with raisins and one with cranberries, and a kiwi.
These lunches continue to be a hit, and Pierce often says that lunch was his favorite part of the day!
