More Finding Dory-Inspired Under the Sea Bento

We're still really really excited for Finding Dory, so we had to make another themed lunch to get ready for it! I think we may also have to do a Finding Nemo watch party before Monday night's premiere.



In this bento, I decided to make a chicken salad since chicken salad and crackers are a favorite sandwich alternative around here.  I did *consider* the idea of tuna salad, but then it seemed like we were eating Dory's friends, so chicken it is!  I used leftover boneless skinless chicken breast that had been marinated in a tomato/garlic/basil blend.  It made for a really awesome flavor combo!  I always do my chicken salads with my mini chopper before adding in mayo to get a nice finely chopped meat.

Once mixed, I knew we had to use our blue fish silicone cup to hold a big scoop of the salad.  There were part of a set of 4 critter cups I found years ago at Ross.  I wish I could remember the brand, but the box has been long gone.

I added some crackers for salad and some chunks of gouda cheese to round out the main course.    To the right, I added some fresh green grapes and an apple cinnamon bar, cut in half, for a treat.  Since we are staying with our Dory theme, everything got a few extra under the sea themed picks.  Lunch is packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes!
We also have a cute Dory themed memory game for you! Just click on Dory above to download a printable file.

Don't forget to come back all week as we add in some more fun Finding Dory ideas and lunches for you!
