On the Road Bentos for Tuesday

Heading to Chicago for a few days on Wednesday, so today absolutely had to be my errand day. No worries, I've got lots of posts scheduled for while we are gone, I planned ahead! Shaun's at work, which meant F&B had to join me for my visits to a million & one stores. Since I knew there would be minimal time to stop & eat lunch (either out or at home), I packed them each a bento to bring along in the car.



We tried to keep it simple and not too messy, since I really don't like people eating in my car. This is Faith's bento, but they had identical lunches. They each had half a cream cheese & jelly sandwich on Nature's Own Whole Wheat Sandwich Rounds (cut in half again, to make quarters and fit in the box). They had a few carrot sticks, half a boiled egg (bunny for Faith, kitty cat for Ben), the last of the honeydew and the last of the strawberries. Trying to finish out a few food items before it all ends up bad when we get home.

  3. I just found your blog a few days ago and am in awe of what you can do. I want to start making bento lunches for my daughter, hubby and I, but I don't feel I have the creative energy to do it. Oh, I am going to try the zucchini cookies and granola bars this weekend, once it cools down! Thanks for the fab ideas!

  4. @Teacher Stuff - I promise, if I'm making it, it's not hard!!! Believe it or not, I really don't like to cook, I just like to play around with the food designs. All the recipes are on the easy side of normal. :o)
