Super fast and easy sandwich bento today, since we still have some slow-cooked pork. Sliced up, they make a tasty sandwich tucked with baby spinach between sandwich thins. And since it is a round surface, it spoke "Anpanman" to me. I cut his facial details from grapes and tomatoes, and squeezed some steamed broccoli in the corners to keep him secure. This snap-shut container ensures that the sandwich will keep fresh without drying out, but if I used a basket I would have wrapped the sandwich in wax paper.
The included side box contains fruits which stay separate so that the sandwich won't get soggy: strawberry, blackberries, grapes and a summer-fresh apricot!
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 ^-^!
