I desperately need to go grocery shopping after this long weekend; I'm down to my last fresh veg, and I think I only have a couple of oranges left. I'm relying once more on some dried fruit, which is always nice to have around, especially since it's so portable.
By the way, this is part of E's school's Waste Free Wednesdays! She received a tie-dye cloth napkin for packing a waste-free lunch!
Sandwich today is grilled baked ham and cheddar on rye. The alphabet picks spell H-A-M (shocking, I know.)
I sliced half a yellow bell pepper and included a little piggy sauce cup full of ranch dip, and of course the aforementioned dried cherries with ring picks. By the way, if you ever get a package of picks with these in there, tell your kids not to put them on their fingers! We had a date with some dish soap and that ring last year.
I always say that you can find neat lunch containers in unexpected places. This bento box came from a Crocs store! They said that it was for storing Jibbitz, but it's a totally a 2-tier bento box, complete with a divider and an adorable bow band. It even has space on top for utensils. I think it was on clearance for $4. I have been packing snacks in a drawstring bag one of my older bento boxes came with. If something in her snack needs to be kept cold, I just stick it in her lunchbox with everything else.
Bento #209 - Baked ham & chedder on rye, dried cherries, sliced yellow bell pepper and dip. Snack - String cheese and an Apple Carrot Crusher.
