an actual week of bentos! (#'s 47-53)

Alright, let's get this party started with one whole week of bentos. I know, it's an actual miracle!
grownup bento: chicken salad sandwich with lettuce and tomato on croissant, fortune cookie, 3 red cinnamon bears, asparagus, and strawberries.
Nino Envuelto (recipe to come)-it's essentially a rice cake wrapped in cabbage leaves, apple quartered, babybel chese, and sweet and salty trail mix.
Dannon drinkable yogurt, cucumber slices, 3 pieces of rolled up ham, apple quartered, and Breton crackers
Oatmeal squares cereal, cucumbers, apple chunks, natural cheese
Danimals drinkable yogurt, mini rice cakes, venta crackers, carrot sticks, cucumber coins, and quartered apple. The stuff in the top right container is Boursin cheese spread. It's a Gournay cheese (kind of like cream cheese). This one is flavored with shallot and green onions. It's strong, but pretty delicious. The kids liked it on crackers and veggies.
This is a new bento box! I'll try to get a picture of the whole thing with the lid sometime. It's called Dyno Dips because of the dinosaur dip dividers in the center. I thought it would be good for a bento and it was pretty good. It's cute. And I got it at ROSS for $2. Can't beat that. Also, our ROSS had a bunch of those lock and lock containers but they didn't have any of the divider containers so I wasn't completely sold on it even thought they were just over $2 a piece. Maybe one of you can tell me if you can buy the little divider containers seperately. Anyway, this one has grainsfirst crackers (brand is Dare. These crackers have 10 kinds of seeds on them. I wasn't sure if the kids would eat them, but they loved them.), strawberries, Boursin cheese, "dinosaur eggs" (leftover easter candy), apple slices, carrot sticks, and 2 chocolate covered pretzels.
carrot sticks, half an apple with skin off, "dinosaur eggs", 2 chocolate covered pretzels, a chunk of mozzarella cheese, and 4 of those seed crackers.
