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.


  1. How did you make the face on the egg Shannon?

  2. Will you accept the tutorial will be up tomorrow or Thursday as an answer? ;o) I'll message you on FB.

  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)
