After I made the recent Batman bento a couple of weeks ago, I got a thoughtful message from my friend Kelly who liked the lunch. She happened to mention that her husband, Loren Lester, was the voice of “Robin” in Batman: The Animated Series. She thought it would be fun for me to create a Robin bento & dedicate it to him, and I’m always up for a new challenge. Please visit his website at www.lorenlester.com. He has not only done some amazing voice acting but also film, stage and TV over the past 35 years. He and his lovely wife are certainly not lacking in talent!

And even though you can’t eat it, I hope you enjoy the lunch I made for you, Loren!

Robin’s made from Rudi’s Oat & Nut bread and hand cut. His hair, mask and part of his cape are made from Stretch Island brand grape fruit leather. His eye whites are Vegan brand cheese. His torso is a Pink Lady organic apple with yellow squash stripes and R on his chest. His green sleeves are zucchini. In the top left are cherry tomatoes and in the compartment at top right are pieces of zucchini and yellow squash packed in an Easy Lunch Boxes container designed by Loren’s amazingly talented wife, Kelly!

Below is the Batman post from from a couple of weeks ago. Please click the photo to see the whole post along with my Spider Man bento too. Thanks!

Today I’m starting with my husband’s salad since it’s the prettiest.  Since school has been out for a week for my kids, I’m enjoying a bit of lazy lunch time.

The salad is baby romaine & mixed greens on the bottom.  The deep pink stars are watermelon radishes, the almost white stars are zucchini, and also included are yellow squash slices and carrot slices.  At the top right are seedless green grapes with dried apricot stars on top.  At the top left are our taco leftovers of Lifelight Smart Grounds (faux beef) mixed with black beluga lentils and heirloom tomatoes sliced on top packed in his Easy Lunch Box.

So we packed a lunch for the local aquarium today.  We love it at Mote Marine Laboratory because we get to watch them feed sharks, see the graceful manatees eat, witness first hand how they rehabilitate the local sea turtles, dolphins and other sea life.

I packed a dolphin for Miss G with lots of snacking fruit & veggies.  She has green grapes, at the top left are grape tomatoes with a dolphin pick.  At the top right are raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, prunes and dried apricots on picks.

Miss A had leftover pieces of  Field Roast from dinner last night made by The Grain Meat Company.  It’s a vegan roast made entirely from wheat, grains and vegetables and tastes a whole lot like a normal roast.  It will be on my shopping list for the holidays for sure!  Yum!

And she got my very messy attempt at using a template for rice.  I tried sprinkling cinnamon on her brown rice over a fish template.  It was supposed to look like a fish, but it’s barely recognizable.  On the top of her LunchBots are swords of grapes, blueberries and raspberries.

Not shown was my sandwich & fruit which were also eaten (mostly) by my kids!
