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.

Five Easy Cute Sandwiches You Can Make

School is starting soon and this means it's almost time for lunches again!

While I adore cute food, I also adore cute EASY food.  And I totally understand that buying a collection of tools just to make those cute lunches aren't always in a parent's budget. These ideas involve kitchen tools like knives or scissors and/or basic cookie cutters like circles or hearts that most people already have.  Check out these five cute and easy sandwiches you can make yourself.

One Final Day Camp Bento Lunch

We had one final day of day camp volunteering right before we left for vacation.

We had run out of bread the previous day, but I really didn't want to take out a brand new loaf.  Thankfully, I had bought fresh tortillas for dinner, so was able to swap sandwiches for wraps!

More Day Camp Lunches

Another day camp lunch for my boy!

Since their camp was held at one of the elementary schools, there were indoor facilities for holding lunches, which gave me much better options.  However, we were also leaving on vacation two days after the camp ended, so lunches were also planned around finishing out food.

A Much Larger Day Camp Lunch

So, once upon a time, lunches were cute and coordinated and featured lots of little bites of items. And then the boy became a teenager and the lunches multiplied in size.

Helping at day camp leads to a very hungry boy child, so I packed as much food as I could for him (side note, he ate it all, came home, and opened the fridge).
