Simple Snacks and New Boxes

We haven't been buying a ton of new bento boxes lately.

I mostly use my favorites over and over again, so other than a Wonder Woman set I really had to have, we haven't gotten anything new.  Until these ones.  Easy Lunchboxes came out with snack boxes and these are a game changer.

Time for Camp Lunch

The girl is off to camp this week.

Now, this is her favorite camp because she is going with friends, and my favorite camp because there is a bus pick up about 20 minutes from my house instead of having to drive way up towards the Wyoming border.  The only thing they ask for the bus is to send a packed lunch for the drive up so they aren't stopping along the way.  I can do that!

Braces Mean Soft Foods Lunch

When the girl first got her braces on, we realized she was having some trouble biting into things.

So we kept it simple with a lot of soft foods, including a favorite salad and crackers.

My Lunch is Looking at Me!

A little bit of fun off my camera roll from the last semester.

Things I learned from my daughter, her guy friends find her lunch super amusing, so we had to go all out more than once.

Super Salad Bento Lunch

Now this lunch? This was definitely made for my girl!

One of her absolute favorite lunches is a huge salad bento.  Our deal is that it needs to have sliced meats or eggs and cheese to add some protein too, but it's her idea of a perfect meal.  All we add is some dressing in a separate container, a drink, and a few snacks to it.

It's a Naan-derful Lunch!

It's kind of fun going through pictures from the year and playing, "Guess that lunch?"

Sometimes, the clues are provided for me, based on the kid's preferences or amount of food, sometimes it's, "I wonder who ate that?"

This lunch?  Definitely the boy!  The blackberries and three sandwiches are a giveaway.

Welcome Back! And a Lunch!

After writing this blog for over 10 years, I decided I needed a mental break and took a semester off.

I still made some lunches here and there and took pictures, but decided it was time to sit back and not think about it for a few months.  We had concert and jazz rehearsals and Scouts x2 and soccer practice and ski season and the first semester of dual enrollment community college classes for the girl.

So if you are reading this, thank you.  I appreciate my readers so much and the break has me ready to start blogging again.
