Feeding my Husband - Another Conference Lunch

Apparently, even with no one feeding them at the conference, people still don't bring their own food. Shaun mentioned that he was the only one who had food with him. Now, I know where the conference was, there's nothing but fast food nearby and lunch wasn't long enough to really go anywhere else. Needless to say, he got another lunch from home. I actually think he might have preferred it, he said he was able to just work through lunch and he had a morning snack to go with it.

Now after the first conference lunch, I got a little bit bored, so I had to decorate this one. ;o) It's almost football season!

Texas Longhorns Bento Easy Lunchboxes

He has two sandwiches, one turkey, one ham, on Nature's Own Multi Grain Sandwich Rounds (they are stacked on top of each other), and topped with a cheddar Longhorn! Yes, we really own a Longhorn cookie cutter, and yes, he does humor me, a lot. For the record, I also have one in the shape of the Alamo and another in the shape of Texas. The Longhorn is appropriately orange, with white cheddar horns & sugar eyes. In the same compartment, he has organic veggie straws from Sprouts; they are crunch like chips but a little better health-wise. On the upper right, he has zucchini bars and on the lower right, he has half a peach, strawberries & blueberries.

It's packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes. He also had another little box with grapes and a blueberry-cinnamon muffin for a snack, but no need to show you what a muffin in a box looks like! ;o)

  2. I started packing my husband bento lunches too. He was very clear that I was to add no shapes..... but I had to sneak in a little cheese heart I figured he wouldn't be teased too much for that!

  6. LOL! My husband hides his lunch box in his desk drawer because his coworkers teased him about it. He's 37. I can't believe he cares! Cute lunch.

  8. Shannon - I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't - in recent memory at least - eaten a fresh peach. Got some with our co-op haul this morning - any tips? Do they brown? Thanks!

  9. I'm probably not the person to ask, since I *had* to make peach fruit roll-ups last night with my overly soft peaches. ;o) But they definitely brown/get soft. They are so yummy, but they don't seem to last as long as other things.

  13. Thanks everyone!
    @Stacy, those ones are Wilton brand cupcake picks, they are called something like "send a message" or "add a message" and come in a pack of 12 with 4 colors/shapes.
