A Goldfish Bento (or Mama's Out of Town!)
I just realized that I forgot to blog one of the bentos I left for the kids while I was in NOLA 2 weeks ago. Because the husband has early PT and my sweet neighbor was taking F&B to school for me, I wanted to me sure that they had nothing to do other than grab lunches out of the fridge. However, I left early on a Thursday morning and one of the lunches would not be used until Friday, so I had to be careful what I sent.
This was the Friday lunch. The kids had cream cheese and jelly on goldfish bread since it keeps the best, imho. The goldfish is cute all on his own, so he just needed a candy eye to make him extra cheerful. To the right, they had cucumber stars, carrot sticks and watermelon, then for a treat a few homemade cake balls. I left cheesesticks and Greek yogurts for snacks, so no one had to worry about packing anything extra. It's packed in our Easy Lunchboxes (also available on Amazon).
