Another sandwich bento for MisterMan ~ this time a salmon salad melt on whole wheat sandwich thins. I mixed in lite mayo, diced onion and celery (for crunch), pepper and garlic powder. I would have loved to put hot sauce, but alas, not for my boy. I melted the cheddar, and added fresh spring greens. Carrot sticks, orange sunsugar cherry tomatoes with mozzarella perlini and fresh basil snipped from the garden complete the veggie sides. Oh, and the kosher dill "dragon" with blueberry eyes :) He has Dinosaur Egg plum wings (with veins, even!), and strawberry "scales" with more blueberries, and black organic grapes too.
I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 13yo (8th grader) son & my 9yo (4th grader) daughter every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
