So sad… #bento went down at the beach

20 Jul


I made my son a panda bento, similar to my nephews, for our trip to the beach. We were all excited to be at the beach and ready to eat our lunches. Buy literally 30 seconds after giving my son his lunch, he dropped it in the sand!!!! So sad!!! We each shared part of our lunch with him. Ironically, he wasn’t too sad about the panda musubi. He was more upset about losing his noodles! Lol! 🙂


“Vacation” #bento for my nephew

19 Jul


We are visiting my in-laws for the week and I promised my nephew a bento while I am home. Luckily my sister-in-law had the panda molds and punches. I used leftover dinner meats and yummy cherries and carrots for the bento. The container is a reused takeout container, making it easy for him to recycle it at the park.

What kind if bentos have you made for the summer? 🙂


Airplane #bentos

6 Jul


We headed off to see the Grandparents and I decided to pack them a bento for the plane ride. I truly hate the cost of food at the airport and can’t stand the food offered on the plane that you can buy. If at all possible, I always try to bring my own food.

In these bentos, I tried to make simple items that would transport easily. This bento has a few small musubis, eggs, small sausage links and piggies in a blanket. I added fruit as my daughter loves strawberries and my son loves apples, and I had to use them before we left for our trip.


Simple Trader Joes Chicken Teriyaki #Bento for Summer Camp

3 Jul


I admit it… I cheat sometimes! LOL! There is no way I can make all my food on my own. Although chicken teriyaki is relatively fast compared to other dishes, I did cheat on this and used Trader Joes Chicken Teriyaki. It’s fast… Easy and tastes pretty good.

The kids are now in summer camp and are enjoying a lighter schedule. 🙂 w
Which is nice for me too.
