Just Keep Swimming

Bento Lunch

This weekend, we were trying to nip a cold in the bud so there was lots of vegging on the couch and watching movies.  Getting Munch to actually sit still long enough to watch a scene or two of a movie is pretty big so when she was glued to Finding Nemo, I was excited.  At lunchtime, I kept the momentum going with a fishie themed lunch!

Big compartment of the EasyLunchbox container holds sandwich sushi (cream cheese & jelly on whole wheat bread), a babybel with  a fish shape cut out of the wax, hummus & ranch dip for the carrots in the bottom right compartment.  I put the fish cut out of the Babybel wax on top.
In the top compartment are some goldfish crackers swimming in the blue ocean (or silicone cup).

Plain Jane lunch

Lunch 10.26.10

Nothing too exciting about this lunch I had last week.  I have a salami sandwich with cheese and lettuce on a Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats.  Above the sandwich are green pepper slices and the ranch dip for them is in the bottom compartment on the right.  The top little compartment is filled with what Munch calls "Octagons" or Vermont White Cheddar Wheat Thins.

This is packed in one of my trusty EasyLunchboxes.  I told you back in September about the wonderful problem they were having at EasyLunchboxes.  They had seen such high demand that they were out of stock!!  To thank their customers, they were offering a free cooler for every order that included the lunch containers.   They have more stock coming so the offer is coming to a close.  You have until November 10th to get a free cooler bag with your order of lunch containers.  You do NOT want to pass this up!!

Salad Bar

Bento Lunch

It's Wednesday and that means its time to show off What's for Lunch!!

The lunch I'm showcasing today is a yummy salad!!  I packed each element separately and combined them at lunchtime to keep anything from getting soggy.

Bento 11.03.10

I used the lunch container I got from Avon and filled the big section on the right with salad greens.  I chopped up some leftover grilled chicken and laid that in a baggie on top.  Over on the right, I have scraps of cheddar cheese from the Halloween lunch I made for Munch.  I wanted some sunflower seeds in my salad and had to get creative to find a container that would fit in my lunchbox.  My eyes came across the plastic Easter eggs that haven't found a home yet and it was perfect!!.  Next to those, a pumpkin carrot cupcake and salad dressing.  An apple rounds out the lunch but obviously didn't fit in the container.

Halloween lunch

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth
I'm a week late on the Halloween Muffin Tin Monday theme but Munch got such a kick out of this yesterday, I really wanted to share.

Halloween lunch

In the top row I have all the Halloween-y things you'd find in the sky - Ghosts & Bats - made of bologna and cheddar cheese.  In the bottom row are Witches' Hats and Pumpkins on either side of the compartment with Ritz crackers.

Munch had so much fun with this for as simple as it was.  I looked over and at one point she was "flying" the ghosts in the air. So silly!!

I realize I haven't been updating the blog much lately.  Thanks to those of you who are still stopping by!!  I'm still making fun, bento-y lunches and plan to be posting more regularly soon!  Stay tuned!

Unrelated but important

Munch and I will be participating in the 20th anniversary Susan G Komen Race for the Cure in Houston on October 2nd.  This year takes on special meaning for us as Munch’s grandma is currently going through her second bout with breast cancer.

I realize that you don’t know us personally but if you see fit to help us raise funds, we would gladly accept and appreciate it at our Race Center.

Did you know that every 68 seconds, somewhere in the world, a woman dies from breast cancer - the most prevalent cancer among women today.
