My kids didn't have school today (yay!) and my little girl took a longer-than-normal nap. Knowing she'd be hungry as soon as she woke (she was!), and figuring she was going to wake at a hectic time (she did!), I got this little bento together to be waiting for her.
She has a peanut butter & jelly biscuit sandwich, a flower shaped piece of fruit leather, a silicone cup of grapes and organic yogurt covered raisins, veggie straws, and tucked in the back corner is a tiny piece of granola bar.
The peanut butter & jelly biscuit is a funny thing. I make them in a batch of about 8 or so and keep the extras in the freezer to pull out here and there. My daughter loves them as long as she thinks it's a cookie. If she thinks it's a sandwich then she won't eat it.
I've made a batch of them about four times now and out of each batch I can only get half of them to turn out. This was one of the better ones from my last try. Because they are freezer friendly, it's nice to pull one out and let it thaw in a bento box and be ready to eat by lunch time. You can find the recipe here, but be warned, they are trickier to have turn out well than the photo there and directions would indicate! ;-)
(Or maybe I'm just lousy at making them. That is entirely possible.)
