Another Pre-Quarantine Bento Lunch

I found another pre-quarantine lunch I hadn't blogged yet.

It was so simple and cute and made me miss when life was normal and we weren't all stuck at home all day, every day.  I keep looking at what we are eating and trying to think if I could make a blog post out of it or not.  I might just have to force the kids to let me create a few things so I have new ideas (not like they're going to refuse food being handed to them).

A Pre-Quarantine Bento Lunch

So ... how's your quarantine been?

Ours, like everyone else's, has been full of homemade food, but without a whole lot of packed and prepped lunches.  There was also a very sad mishap involving my laptop and a cup of coffee, which necessitated a new laptop purchase.  In the midst of setting up the new laptop and transferring files the hard way, I found a couple of pre-quarantine lunch photos that I had yet to blog.

Another Christmas Bento Lunch

We're actually super close to our holiday break--our school actually finishes up earlier than most.  But I had to do at least one more holiday lunch for my boy since his sister got one the other week.

We still need to bake Christmas cookies and other fun stuff, so I'm looking forward to the break.

A Simple Christmas Bento

This year's schedule didn't leave tons of room for Christmas lunches, but I had to at least make a few of them.  It wouldn't be any fun without at least one or two special lunches.

Quick Croissant Bento Lunch

Always time for a quick lunch, especially when the alternatives aren't that great!

My girl loves certain soup days at her college and will definitely partake in those, but on the other days, she needs to bring a lunch, so quick favorite it is!

How to Make a Thanksgiving Turkey Shaped Sandwich

One of our pre-Thanksgiving week traditions is turkey-shaped sandwiches in our lunches and they are super easy to make!

Unlike many cute lunches, these sandwiches only require items you likely already have in your kitchen--a good sharp knife is key.  The only potential shopping life item is sugar eyes and, since you can use those on so many cute food ideas, they are worth buying a package.

Panda Themed Bento Lunch

Even if I don't always have the time for super cute lunches, a few add ons go a long way.

And everyone in my house loves pandas, so we've got plenty of panda accents for bento lunches.
