I had a long, frustrating day yesterday with the girls so I decided to pour it into making some extra special bentos for today’s lunches. They both love Olivia the pig on Nick Jr. Their friend, Ada Sofia, loves her more than them both combined so this is for her too. And it’s a continuation of the letter “O” week at school where they both learn about everything having to do with the letter and practice writing their “O”s.
Miss G gets the more elaborate princess Olivia in her red gown. The “bread” is flatbread with veggie “meat” and “cheese” slices and the details are in fruit leather in her stainless LunchBots bento container.
The separate container has freshly picked sugar snap peas and strawberries from a local farm with a prune for good measure (iron & fiber and vitamin A). She also has a little pic container full of unsalted mixed nuts (cashews, pistachios and a big walnut).
Miss A gets the big Olivia face made from the same.
Her heart container has fresh strawberries, a little pig container with lid of raisins inside, a pink container of the same type of mixed nuts and dried apricot chunks. Both girls have ice waters with their lunches.
