Because the kids wanted egg salad and I wanted to do make-ahead meals, today had to be egg salad day. I know I can make a sandwich the evening before and it's OK for lunch, but I did not want to find out what egg salad in the fridge for several days was like. Today, both kids had egg salad on whole wheat sandwich thins, topped with some puzzle piece cheeses, along with cantaloupe and carrots. Not pictures, they had Annie's Cheddar Bunnies and strawberry-banana Chobani yogurt tubes as snacks.
I made the sandwiches and cheese cutouts last night, along with adding the carrots and cantaloupe to the box. As usual, I had the fruit already diced up, and I had made the egg salad on Saturday for me, so made enough to use some during the week. Morning prep was only snacks and water bottles. For make-ahead bentos, I've found Easy Lunchboxes are the best choice. The fruit is separate from the main meal, and they stack well in my fridge!
