Breakfast For Lunch Bento

I find that I tend to use the LunchBots Quad to try to give me some inspiration on days that find me kind of tired (or lazy). They're great for using up whatever odds and ends you happen to have lying around that don't seem to be enough for a whole lunch. Well, guess what? When you put them all in here, they somehow come together to add up to a complete and filling meal. I had a couple eggs and a sweet Italian sausage so I quickly tossed them in the frying pan to scramble up together. Topped with a few green onions, it'll make a tasty protein serving for TinySprite. The last of the roasted Brussels sprouts and a few carrots fill out the veggie section, and I squeezed a cup of cottage cheese / blueberries / pumpkin seeds alongside some baby super-ripe strawberries. The last section holds watermelon balls, because we're clinging to summer no matter what the calendar says. How about you?

  1. I love breakfast for lunch! I haven't done this for myself too long.
    (Not clinging to summer though. I love fall, and am ready for it!)

  2. I love having breakfast when it's not breakfast time, lol! We had a really hot summer this year so I'm looking forward to fall. Maybe next year you can get some of our heat!

    1. Hey, thanks megan -- I try my very best to take full advantage of every last waning ray of sunlight, but it will be a thing of memory pretty soon I fear.
      I love the mini baby brussels too!

  4. Wish I had enough energy to make these cute lunches for myself...it sure would make a whole day of graduate school classes just that much more cheerful!
