Christmas snack box by bentorifficMiss G (4) has an Easy Lunchboxes container full of goodies today.  Her entree is separate.   We are loving the mini Crimson Gold organic apples this year.  They’re a bit tart and quite crunchy.  Best of all they are preschooler sized and fit into any lunchbox.  Nothing goes to waste since even a 2 year old can finish one of these.  I made gingerbread men and Christmas tree pumpkin muffins this week. In the top is a Christmas tree pumpkin muffin I made in a smaller silicone muffin tray.   The gingerbread men came out without limbs (can’t say I recommend the silicone mold on those).  They were all delicious but not too pretty for pictures.  In the bottom compartment are a peeled clementine orange, grape tomatoes with a candy cane food pick, mini carrots and a mixture of cashews, almonds and pistachios for munching.

LunchBots Insulated Chili by bentorifficThis LunchBots Insulated stainless container is filled with homemade vegan chili for Miss G’s main dish for lunch today. The recipe for the chili can be found here and modified depending on how you like it.  Vegan Chili Recipe  I fill the container with boiling water and let it sit for about 10 minutes with the lid on.  I heat the chili during that time, dump the water after 10 minutes and fill the container with chili.  She says it’s still warm at lunchtime 5 hours after packing it.  The best part about these containers is the wide mouth opening.  She can eat out of it just like a bowl without fumbling to get to the bottom or dumping things over.

Snowman LunchBots Quad by bentorifficMy 2 year old daughter took a LunchBots Quad  for lunch today.  From the top left she has a dairy free pumpkin muffin in a Christmas tree shape, a peeled clementine with snowman ring, small mini snowmen sandwiches on Rudi’s organic whole wheat bread made with a small pastry cookie cutter stamp, and pineapple pieces.  Both girls always have ice water with their lunches.

Happy lunch packing!

I know it’s not here yet, but we have to give you time to buy groceries and plan! My bento buddies and I are doing a St. Patrick’s Day blog hop today. Little A found this Irish troll in Goodwill yesterday, and I decided he was a good mascot for today’s blog hop. When you get to the bottom, please click on the link to check out the next fun lunch.

We’re on spring break this week and eating at home. Miss G is having green tinted hummus with carrot shamrocks on top. To go with the hummus are homemade clover shaped pita chips. She has an apple slice with a clover cut out of the middle. At the bottom right are kiwi slices and bottom left are dried apricots and green grapes.

Miss A has a shamrock shaped sandwich on whole grain bread on spinach leaves. At the top are clover shaped honeydew melon, the green shamrock container has edamame and fresh snap peas and a clover shaped dried apricot is below that. At the bottom left is a clover shaped cucumber and above that is an apple hat with fruit leather buckle.

And NOW please click on the link to go check out what’s awesome today in What’s In John’s Lunch Bag for more St. Patrick’s Day fun!

Today is a typical Monday.   I had the best intentions and resorted to my handy dandy Lunch Punch for the frog prince today.   You can find all their great sandwich cutters here: http://www.thelunchpunch.com/lp/.  They’re also sold on Amazon.  The crown, eyes and smile are just punched out of strawberry fruit leather and stuck on the sandwich with honey.  I gave him some green frog warts made of chocolate decorative sprinkles.  I used colorful separators so the fruit didn’t make the sandwich mushy.  I included organic raspberries, a big strawberry and blueberries.

I didn’t want my husband to feel left out so he got a special message on his sandwich today too!  Happy Monday.
