A Sweet Strawberry Bento and a Guest Post

While the plague is going through my house, I was trying to figure out what to do blogwis. My awesome friend Cristi from BentOnBetterLunches offered to share a guest post for me because she is a wonderful person!

I'm so berry thrilled to be here! No, seriously, wordplay aside, it's truly an honour to be guest posting at What's For Lunch At Our House, one of my own inspirations for bento & blogging!

I chose to share my preschooler Birdie's bento:



Birdie asked for a strawberry lunch. Unfortunately I could not find any decent fresh berries!  I did have some frozen... I'm sure they thawed by lunch :) The grapes looked good, so I arranged some around a baby carrot in a flower shape. Birdie's preschool allows peanut butter so I gave her two little strawberry-shaped PB sandwiches, stacked, and in the dip cup, a scoop of yogurt, coloured pink with strawberry syrup. I also gave her strawberry milk to drink for a treat, she loves pink milk!


 I chose this particular bento because it's packed in one of our Goodbyn Mix&Match boxes, and I've not seen this container among any of Faith & Ben's lunches. her drink container is also by Goodbyn, and her spork by Light My Fire. And I know this doesn't look like a lot of food, but keep in mind, it's for a 3 year old :)

Thank you so much for this awesome opportunity Shannon - I love your blog! 
I hope you feel better soon
