EasyLunchboxes | Penguin Burrito Bento

Cute little penguin meal: 
   
EasyLunchboxes penguin lunch - deli burrito, grapes, pistachios, goldfish crackers.
Packed in an EasyLunchbox:
- deli burrito, stuffed with Applegate natural smoked turkey breast, Applegate havarti cheese, & romaine lettuce
- two little penguins made from Applegate organic cheddar cheese (cut with cutters from this set)
- penguin bait (Goldfish crackers) :)
- grape assortment with a cute penguin bento pick
- pistachios 
- a few organic gummy bears are in the little penguin pot

This was a dinner sort of meal for Paige. I had to take her along to some after-school appointments that would cut into her starting-to-starve-time. For a school lunch I would have shelled those pistachios for her, since the time allotment for lunch period is pretty tight and I don't want her to waste those minutes wrestling the shells open. But for outings, such as this one, I LOVE having time consuming eats in her box. It's a great distraction and keeps her busy and engaged in her meal for a longer period of time, making the waiting at appointments much more tolerable for everyone. :)

Supplies used to pack this lunch:
  

Disclosure: Applegate recently sent me a selection of delicious organic and natural deli meats and cheeses to try out and enjoy. Yum!

Where did you get the little penguin pot? It is seventy-three kinds of adorable.

I don't remember where it came from - maybe Ichibankan back when they were still open online, or perhaps Jbox? I've had it for years and from a quick look around the internets, I don't see it available anywhere anymore, not even on ebay. :(

When it opens his little beak is removable and shaped like a paddle to use as a spreader/knife for condiments.
