bentos 5-9

daddy bento: I usually make him a couple of these to take with him to work so he has 2 meals during his shift. Sometimes it's not enough food. Sometimes it's too much. I have yet to figure out the right balance. This is 2 wheat tortillas rolled up with turkey, cheese, lettuce, and homemade ranch dressing, grape tomatoes from our garden, red grapes, and 2 cookies.
school bento: red grapes, edamame, boiled egg, mini twisty pretzels, corn-cut off the cob, the flower toothpick has cheddar cheese cut into flower shapes, and banana bread.
red grapes, edamame, peach yogurt, banana bread, deli turkey rolled up and skewered with a cute little lion pick, grape tomatoes.
breaded chicken nuggets, little container of BBQ sauce, grape tomatoes, green grapes, cheddar sun chips, banana bread wedge.
I don't know why this picture is turned the other way. This is a snack bento for HF. It has grape tomatoes, green and red grapes, cheese pieces tucked on the edges, a nut mixture I made that has peanuts, cashews, pretzel pieces, and raw almonds, and Ritter Sport chocolate.

how did the yogurt fare in there?!? I'm wondering if it spilled out since it was just sitting in that cup. You are giving me lots of great ideas, thanks!!! :)

Hi Pam! And thank you!

LnP-You'll have to take pics of what you make and post it! :)

KD- the lids push down on what's in these little boxes so it works- there's just a little yogurt on the lid. They sell bento accessories that you can put on top of the yogurt to keep it better intact. I guess if you shake it violently it might spill, but so far so good.
