Leftovers to Lunches Bento - Pasta Salad & Meatballs

Since the school year has barely started, I really don't want to get into a sandwich rut already, so I've been playing around with ways to use out our leftovers.  (By the way, if you are looking for sandwich ideas, I still love the 5 Simple Sandwich Spins I wrote last fall.)

So what made the leftover-to-lunch cut? The kids had pasta salad with some extra cheese bits and peas which are apparently on the bottom of the dish (it's a mini tier from another bento set that fit perfectly here).  They had leftover Italian style meatballs, skewered with some new picks, carrots and shaped cucumbers.  To the right are creme brûlée crisps and some sliced plums (Faith opted for a peach instead).  It's packed in our Easy Lunchboxes (also available on Amazon).
