Me and my gimpy thumbs are back in bento business! My poor kid had to buy her lunches all last week (thankfully they really aren't bad, and she will usually grab a salad anyway.) I decided that I didn't want to pay a $50 copay for 5 seconds so that a nurse could remove my stitches, so I did it myself yesterday MacGuyver-style with a pair of new sterilized cuticle nail clippers. One-handed, even! Looks pretty good, but I'm still black and blue over my entire thumb.
My last few lunches have been vegetarian, not wholly by design. This bento also happens to be vegetarian. She's got an assortment of fresh veggies and dip, along with some cheese cubes and saltines.
Dessert is sliced apples (NOT done with an apple slicer...in fact I bought these in one of those pre-cut packages...can you blame me?) and grapes.
We have a special snack of a bunch of yogurt star cookies and an apple sauce.
Bento #219 - Celery sticks, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, broccoli, ranch dip, cheese, saltine crackers, sliced apples, and grapes. Snack - Yogurt Stars and applesauce.
