Easter Egg Sandwich Bento for Muffin Tin Monday

Hard to believe Easter is already over.  Time sure can fly sometimes.  Pierce found an Easter egg sandwich in his lunchbox.
He had a cheese sandwich with mustard (and olive + sliced pepperoni for decoration), strawberries, an energy ball (see my post last Tuesday for a recipe link), dried apricots (Pierce and I both LOVE these!), and some tortilla chips.  Pierce ate every single thing in his lunchbox and didn't leave a crumb!

Speaking of food (or, uh, drinks), have you all tried Sneaky Pete's yet? We were sent some to try (I was under no obligation to review it or anything) and I really like it! It has as much fiber as a bowl of oatmeal, but only 40 calories. And it isn't a really heavy taste like a protein drink (which I can't tolerate). My husband and Pierce really enjoyed them too.  If you want to boost your fiber in a healthy drink, you might give it a try - they just hit the stores last month.

Thanks for the tip on Sneaky Pete's. With my stomach issues, I'll be looking for it in the store.

If I lived near you, would you fix my lunch? Pierce is a lucky little guy that you go to so much trouble although I know you love doing this for him! :)
