A Kid-Made Bento Lunch

Our original plan was supposed to be lunch at school, but the morning of, my girl decided that she didn't want to buy lunch.  Since I was completely unprepared at 7am, the only option was for her to make something for herself if she did not want to eat at school.  She did.

A Second Quick Pocket Sandwich Bento

You can't make a pocket sandwich for one kid without the other.  Or at least in my house, you can't.

Thankfully, I bought a whole pack of pocket breads, so I had plenty for each kid.  I also found our favorite ham salad at King Soopers, so I bought that for my girl and me!

Quick Pocket Sandwich Lunch

This year is coming up to a close and life is getting insane.

There's multiple Christmas concerts, holiday parties, babysitting jobs, and way too much on our plates.  Unfortunately, the kids still need to eat, so we're doing super easy lunches right now, along with a whole lot of leftovers the rest of the time.

Croissant Sandwich Bento Lunch

Mini croissants are another favorite around here.  I pick up a big container of them whenever I top at Sam's Club.

I like my warm, with just a bit of jam or Nutella, but the kids also love making sandwiches out of them.  Two are pretty close to the size of a regular sandwich and change things up nicely.

Another Pasta Salad Bento

The girl is still all about salads for lunch.

We change up her chef salads with pasta salad for variety, and both are favorite options for her.  Pasta salad travels well too, which is perfect for long days.

Quick Kitty Sandwich Bento

Once again, we are back from vacations and holidays.

As we're getting back into the swing of things, and getting ready for Christmas, lunch is staying a bit on the simpler side.  The kids have had a lot of concert and jazz rehearsal, Christmas performance rehearsals, and more.  Quick, easy, and healthy is the theme!

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
