Lunch for the Boy Bento

Nothing fancy today, just a bunch of the boy's favorite foods in a cute little bento.

I was going to make homemade uncrustables with my Pampered Chef uncrustable maker, but somehow over-stuffed the filling so the top bread split in half. Thus, we have open top pocket sandwiches that I am going to pretend I meant to make on purpose.

Ben has an open pocket sandwich, cream cheese & jelly, using Nature's Own Honey Wheat bread and Santa Cruz Oragnics seedless red raspberry jam. We reviewed the jams for an article on MomTrends and I am in love with it. We've been on a quest for an awesome jam/jelly, including making our own, so it's always nice to stumble into a great one without even trying!

To go with that, he has half a boiled egg, a few pretzels, a few carrot sticks, a bunch of blackberries (ran to Sprouts last night to stock up on more), and a "mini muffin surprise" from Monday's baking bonanza. It looks like it might have some butterscotch chips in it, but your guess is as good as mine.


  1. Totally craving a cream cheese and jelly sami!

  2. I have been thinking about trying uncrustables as it's something that my kids have been asking for - and I think making them up ahead a time would save me time in the morning. Just grab 4 out of the freezer and add some fruits and veggies. I gotta say too - I thought that I was good at variety in our lunches - but yours have totally inspired me to think about adding even more! Always so colorful and packing quite a punch in your boxes! We have the easy lunch box system but I am thinking about adding another set - which are you favs?

  3. just wanted to let you know I featured you today :) love all of your ideas!
