Almost Thanksgiving Bento Lunch

My kids are off next week, so we had to squeeze in one Thanksgiving themed lunch.

Not only that, this one is easy enough that you can replicate it at home with just a good sharp knife

Quick Fish Bento Lunch

We're still on a cute lunch kick and I'm really liking it.

Both kids are wanting extra cute food to show their friends and I'm getting to pull out a lot of our fun tools to use on lunches again.  This week, we went with sea themed!

Cute Dino Sandwich Bento

I'm loving that my kids are back on a really cute lunch kick, because their friends are super amused by it.

The girl told me she needed something to amuse one of her friends and what is more amusing than dinosaurs in hats?

Sandwich Wrap Bento

Playing catch up on some old lunches I found on my phone! Since we just came off a vacation, it's nice to have some things to share on the blog.

One of the boy's favorite dinners is Korean beef and occasionally, there are leftovers.  He loves them as a wrap sandwich, since they have a microwave at school.  This lunch isn't terribly exciting to look at, but he did enjoy!

Quick Pasta Salad Bento

Besides regular salads, the girl also enjoys a larger pasta salad in her lunch.

Sometimes we make them fresh and sometimes we have the perfect leftovers for a pasta salad.  One of our current favorite recipes is a cordon bleu pasta bake that's great hot, but it's also really good cold.

Quick and Easy Halloween Bento Lunch

I'm convinced quick and easy is my lunch theme lately.

It's a combination of being crazy busy and the kids both requiring way more food than they did as toddlers, so I have to pack quantity, not design.  This Halloween lunch did help a bit since I was able to use cupcake picks from the Dollar Tree to jazz up the mass quantity of food my kid requires.

Time for a Lunchable Bento Lunch

I was making lunches the other day and asked the girl what she might like.

 She wasn't sure either, nothing we had sounded good to her and the leftovers weren't a good plan either. I suggested a homemade lunchable as an alternative and she thought that sounded perfect, especially since we had a good variety of cheese in our fridge.
