I guess it's sandwich week, 'cuz we've got another sandwich today! Well, wrap. This one has ham, cheese, avocado, green olive tapenade and spring greens all rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla. I wrapped them in wax paper (bottoms are also folded in) to minimize fallout while the boy eats.
This is the very first time I've used this bento box without all the inserts, and I've used it at least 20 times! I was a little nervous at first, but everything just fell into place. I would have taken all the inserts out, but I was pretty sure the panda egg in his asparagus forest would need extra propping up. The panda is a hard-boiled egg with nori and radish (eye) details. I free-cut the nori, and don't know why he's so grouchy looking. Maybe he was hoping for actual bamboo.
I also added a few baby carrots and a half radish in that cup with him. Finally, I squeezed in a few supersweet strawberries and some red grapes. We had another beautiful spring day today! We'll have to appreciate this weather while it lasts, since the rains are coming back this weekend. Have a good one, friends :)
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 9yo (4th grader) son & my 5yo kindergartener girl 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 ^-^!
