Paige took the PlanetBox:
In the large section I used the leak-proof Big Dipper to hold several frozen yogurt stars.
The side sections hold mini-saltine crackers and clementine oranges.
The long space on top is an A-B pattern of sliced sausage (Bratwurst? Maybe? I don't know. I don't eat it) and cheddar cheese cubes.
I completely forgot to put something in that tiny middle spot and didn't even realize it until I was staring at the picture on my computer screen.
The frozen yogurt stars are simply regular strawberry yogurt from a big tub that I spooned into a silicone ice cube tray and froze. They pop out and make yummy bite-sized nibbles. According to my calculations they will be semi-melted by lunchtime, but still nice and very cold. This is one of the things I experimented with this summer - freezing, packing in a lunchbox with icepacks and all, left to sit on the counter for the same number of hours the lunch will be left at school in a cubby before lunchtime. Paige approved of the results. Booyah.
The bratswurst/sausage/circular meat is leftover from a grilling session the other night. My dear husband ate sausage and fed it to my two youngest carnivores while Ethan and I ate chicken. :) (The food-phobic Owen had Cheerios, in case you were wondering.)
Speaking of chicken, the leftovers of that landed in Ethan's lunch. His Bynto bento yesterday:
The top section holds mini saltines with cheddar cheese stars (in a jumbo sized silicone cup), with grilled chicken to the side. The chicken is cut into cubes and put on bento picks.
The middle section is fruitful with strawberries and clementines. Along with a cute Snack Marker cocktail fork.
The bottom section has a cereal bar and a granola bar.
I am so relieved how well the whole lunch packing morning routine is going so far this year. How's everyone else holding up?
