Doctor Who Logo Bento

Most of the time I tell Kidlet what I am making him for lunch in advance but today's lunch was a complete surprise and he was so excited! On a slightly unrelated note.....the paper I used under the bento this morning to take a pic has names of recess games on being Red Rover. Kidlet didn't have any idea what Red Rover was! I just don't know what our school systems are teaching these kids....*sigh* ;)

Doctor Who logo is cheese and food coloring markers and sits on top of a soy ham sandwich. On the side are carrot, checkered apple, strawberries, and blackberries.

Year of the Dragon Bento

Kidlet has been eagerly awaiting this day! Happy Lunar New Year! This marks the first day of the Year of the Dragon, which is exciting for Kidlet because he was born in the Year of the Dragon!

I found this description of Year of The Dragon people: The Dragon is a beautiful creature, colorful and flamboyant. An extroverted bundle of energy, gifted and utterly irrepressible, everything Dragons do is on a grand scale - big ideas, ornate gestures, extreme ambitions.

Dragon is cheese and food color markers sitting on a soy ham and manchego cheese sandwich. On the side are carrots, checkered apple, strawberries, and blackberries.

Tiny little bento

So, this lunch was inspired by these teeeeny little toasts that I found at the grocery store in the cheese aisle. SO CUTE! And I know this doesn't look like much food, but he didn't even eat it all. I have learned to no longer be stressed about that. Anything not eaten at school he eats after school as a snack. He's healthy and not starving so if he talks more than eats at lunch....oh well!

Packed in a small square snack box Kidlet has petite toasts, soy ham and manchego cheese on panda skewers, a clementine segment, and pomegranate. On the side is a small container of applesauce.

Cut the Rope Om Nom Bento

Cut the Rope is another popular game that Kidlet has been enjoying on the ipod touch he got for his birthday. It features Om Nom, an adorable creature who loves candy! Now, I may be alone in this but I cannot play this game. If you miss getting the candy in to Om Nom's mouth he flattens and makes a really pathetic noise. It breaks my heart! So this is one game Kidlet has to play alone and with the sound off :P

Packed in our new Lunchbots box :Om Nom is cheese and food coloring on top of a Boca Chik'n patty sandwich. On the side are pomegranate, grapes, pretzels, checkered apple, and clementine segments.

Pancake Bento in a new box

We've been in a bit of a bento rut lately. I've been sending Kidlet to school with a thermos of vegetable soup for the entire week. The only downside was then he didn't want to eat it again for dinner :P It's cold now, what can I say!

In an attempt to break free from the soup, I present pancakes. Not the most exciting thing in the world, but Kidlet was thrilled! I'm trying out this new box we got for Christmas. It's a Lunchbots Uno box that I have been wanting for a long time!

Kidlet has mini pancakes, Morningstar Farms Breakfast patties on skewers, checkered apple, and clementine wedges.

I am seriously in love with this box and Kidlet is too! Now that he is getting older he is less interested in the cutesy boxes we have so many of. The box is a bit bigger than most I have been using so there is a good chance more food will come home. I have hopes that one day he will eat more than a preschooler at lunch.
