Bento Thursday

Like all things blog related, I'm behind on Bento Thursday. But, with the beginning of a new school year, I have revived interest in bento-ing. It helps that I bought a few new bento boxes. With Isabelle actually entering school, I bought a couple bigger bentos. She got a cute new lunchbag(and backpack) from Aunt Brenda and Thornton for her birthday so I had to buy the matching bento box that fits in it. HAD to, of course.

I also bought a great new Laptop Lunch box with some additional containers. This is great for Conrad and I's lunch as well! And, not wanting Grace to feel left out, I bought this cute little panda lunch box, on sale for about $14 on

I haven't been super creative these first couple weeks of school, but enough to keep them eating, at least. Without further ado:

In the top box you have fresh berries, fishy crackers, and DIY smores. In the bottom you have a yogurt drink and a castle turkey and cheese decorated by Isbaelle herself!This is her new Spencer Bento Box.

The top is Grace's bento box and the same lunch for Isabelle in the bottom. In Kindergarten there is no microwave to warm up food. She has a real problem with this and has told me several times already that she can't eat cold food! So we got an inexpensive thermos and I warm it up before school and apparently it's still hot at school. here you see Mac and cheese with crabby hotdogs with cheesy eyes (they don't last so well being warmed up!)Cataloup hearts and in-season raspberries, a small container of ketchup, homeade blueberry muffin, and half of a fruit roll up for a treat. Most of these little Laptop Lunch boxes have lids with them

Here you have a homeade pizza with little turkey pepperoni hearts. Berries, blueberry mini muffins, and carrots and dip. I love those little dip containers, they are the perfect size!

Here is Grace's new Panda lunchbox (so cute, right?) And the bottom is Isabelle's equivalant. They love lunchables, so I cut out little shapes out of block colby cheese and the beloved turkey pepperoni. You also have fishy crackers, fresh peaches and raspberries, and a blueberry muffin. There is also an organic fruit leather.
