Miss G has days of the week lessons in spanish this week so I made her a Lunes lunch today.  In the top yellow flowers are raspberries with a blackberry in the middle and a sectioned plum on the right.  In the middle is her ice water and the bottom compartment are almond butter and jam sandwiches with LUNES cut out in Stretch Island fruit leather letters packed in her raspberry Goodbyn Bynto box.

For her snack today, nectarines, blueberry picks and strawberry hearts are packed in her Happy Tiffin stainless bento.

Little Miss A, 2, is having an insect filled lunch today.  They are studying bugs this week so I’m playing along.  She has Wholly Guacamole frozen in a spider cup.  The spider’s 8 eyes and mouth are made from kalamata olives.  Underneath are pretzel chips for dipping.  At the top right are organic raspberries on spider picks. Below that are strawberries and blueberries on ladybug picks.  And at the bottom left are plum sections with a bee pick packed in her LunchBots Quad.

My husband has a green salad today to go with his lunch.  He has mixed baby greens, organic green zebra stripe heirloom tomatoes, scallions and sugar snap peas.  At the top are mini carrots and strawberries packed in his Easy LunchBox container.

Miss A had to skip camp today due to a runny nose so I sent Miss G to school with her small square bento.  From the top left she has organic nectarine sections, star shaped sandwiches on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread with almond butter & jam and organic red seedless grapes with a star baran (food separator/decoration) on top.

My husband had another baby green salad with baby bok choi and spinach.  I found a black radish at our local Whole Foods which I’d never seen before.  It’s larger than the traditional red radishes and a charcoal colored black on the outside, but it tastes very similar to the red radishes and is completely white in the middle.  The black radish slices are in the middle, next are small slices of a baby zucchini, and I also julienned a larger carrot I had left in the fridge for the outer edge of the salad.  Not shown is his favorite ginger dressing.  At the top left are mixed nuts and goji berries and in the flower at the top right are strawberry pieces packed in his Easy Lunch Box container.

Things I used to make this lunch:

The girls were starving by the time we were ready for lunch today so I had to come up with something quick!  They often want Hello Kitty which you may be tired of seeing by now, but they always like it.

Miss G had a Hello Kitty face sandwich on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  She also had organic seedless green grapes, Hello Kitty shaped cantaloupe pieces and a small container of dried cranberries packed in her Sanrio brand Hello Kitty bento box.

Little Sis had the same thing just in different shapes.  She had Hello Kitty sitting down with the same Hello Kitty stamped cantaloupe, green grapes and Craisins packed in her Hello Kitty bento box too.

The sandwich cutters came from the local Sanrio store and are cookie cutters.  The small vegetable & fruit cutters with stamps I found on eBay in Japan along with the Hello Kitty bento picks.

My husband has another healthy salad for lunch today.  He has all baby greens (spinach, kale, arugula and radicchio) topped with an orange heirloom tomato sliced and star shaped carrot slices.  At the top left are grapes and pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top.  At the top right was last night’s dinner here.  It’s Einkorn rigatoni, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, and white wine vinegar mixed with sweet peas, grape and plum tomatoes sliced, garbanzo beans (chickpeas) and topped with a small bit of soy feta cheese.  All if it is packed in his Easy Lunch Box.

Things I used to make this lunch:

Today’s lunch was a quickie.  My kids were starving and not willing to wait for my usual lunch antics and photos before eating.  Sheesh!  After all, they are 2 & 4.  They have the patience of a gnat.  So I whipped out my latest fun tool to try out, and this is what I got.  4 hearts and a diamond sandwich pockets made from Rudi’s Whole Grain bread, Justin’s Almond Butter and jam.  The owls are “sitting” on 2 Snyder’s braided whole grain pretzel sticks.  There are 2 heart watermelon pieces and a bunch of seedless red grapes below.

I pressed them in my newest toy from Bento USA below.

My husband gets a baby green salad with swiss chard, arugula and spinach underneath.  On top are orange heirloom tomatoes slices, baby carrots, chopped celery, green onions and sugar snap peas packed in his Easy Lunch Box.  At the top left are watermelon chunks and at top right are Rainier cherries.
