I also used a new Bento container. You won't believe this, but I got these at The Container Store (my idea of Heaven) for only $6.00!!!! You heard right! And look at all the food that I've packed in there, more then enough for any child, more then enough for me, probably enough for my Hubby. If you were using these for your Husband and you wanted to put a sandwich, don't worry there is tons of space. You could fill this full of all sorts of great eats, and pack an apple or banana separately to bulk up the meal.
Both girls got the same lunch, and they were both so excited for these new bento boxes. Gigi's is blue and LiLi's is pink, everyone is happy with their favorite colors! This lunch has salami ribboned on toothpicks, tomatoes and carrot slices, pickles and olives, and cheese cubes...the toothpicks and little bits really do make the food taste better. They got a half a banana, a handful of raw almonds, and that yummy, colorful pasta salad, plus two samaos cookies!
We've been selling Girl Scout cookies for the last few weeks and I finally broke down and opened a box. Now to just eat two a day.
