In other news, we are officially homeschooling this year, so our first bentos of the "school" year were actually for our very first homeschool field trip! We went to a local farmstead that still is done up from the 1800s. The kids got to try their hand at farm chores, then we had a picnic out there with friends.
Both kiddos had the same thing--chicken & veggie stuffed muffins, chunks of cheese, a mini granola bar (ok, real granola bar that I cut in half) and grapes.
We are also finally the proud owners of two stainless steel water bottles, so our lunches are now 100% trash free (we use cloth napkins and reusable bags too)!
