Quick Goodbyn Croissant Bento Lunch

Back to school time with a high school boy means figuring out more ways to pack more food.

I've been using our Goodbyn Hero box a lot lately, since it holds the most food out of ay of the boxes I own.  I'm thinking I may need to order another one, so it's easier to pack daily.

Mini Tortilla Wraps Bento Lunch

Week two of school is wrapping up and I have now found the most perfect sandwich wraps!  (All puns are totally intended.)

I found these teeny tiny tortillas at the grocery and knew I had to buy a pack to try.  I was right--they made the cutest little wrap sandwiches.  Next up, I'm making mini-quesadillas with them.

Back to School Bento Lunch

Once upon a time, I started this blog, in order to catalog the lunches I made for my daughter for a friend of mine who wanted to see them.  Our kids had just started kindergarten that year and I was worried that mine might not have enough time to eat.

A whole lot of years later, and today is the first day of senior year for that kindergartener.  She will graduate high school this year as well as earn her associate's degree.  But she still needs lunch, so I had to pack favorites for her.

Teen-Made Snack Box Bento

I was looking through emails the other day and found one from my daughter.

I had been sick back in the spring, so she had packed some lunches and snacks for herself and was thoughtful enough to snap a few photos in case I needed a blog post.  Perfect timing as school does not start for us until next week.

Taco Muffin Snack Box Bento

It's been awhile since I've made stuffed muffins for the kids, to the point that they were trying to actually remember what they were.  They had been such a staple in our preschool and elementary school bento boxes that I had to make a fresh batch to jog their memories.

How to Pack Disposable Bento Lunches

You know you're going to get that note from school at some point this year.

It's field trip time! Please send a few dollars and a disposable lunch with your child.  The problem for me is that I don't typically have disposable containers.  I use washable containers for everything in my fridge which limits my options.

So what does your typical lunch packing mom who uses bento boxes do?  Use recyclable or other containers and make a disposable bento lunch.
