Super Bowl XLIX

The Super Bowl is coming up.  Sunday the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks will duke it out to see who will be the Super Bowl XLIX champions.  I have made a Super Bowl bento every year since I started this blog and this year will be no exception :)  Are you ready for some football??

In this bento:  Green grapes, yellow pepper goal post, strawberries with helmet picks (representing the New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks), and a football pastrami sandwich.

The helmet picks I bought from Oriental Trading Co. last year.  Unfortunately, I do not see them listed any longer.  This lunch was packed in a single tier of our Bentgo box.

Real Life

There are good days and bad days.  This picture shows one of those days!  I shared the above picture on Instagram on the day this occurred (before the holidays).  Today I am posting the lunches that were made on that day.  The house was left in a mess.  The dog is saying, "I did not do this!"  The papers on the floor were dumped out of my daughter's backpack in my desperate last minute search to find her library book that needed to be returned to school that day. :-/  I normally pack lunches the night before but I fell asleep on the couch that night, before the task was done, so I left it for the morning.   Despite all the chaos and rushing around that morning I was still able to take a couple of minutes to throw together bentos for my kids. (They do insist on eating lunch every day.)

Lunch in a rush #1 -

In this bento:  An Applegate hot dog cut into pieces, apple chunks, and edamame.  This lunch is packed in our matryoshka bento box that I bought at Daiso Japan.

We had to rush off to get sister to the bus stop that morning.  After the bus came I had a couple of spare minutes to "cute'n up" my son's lunch before taking him to preschool.

In this bento:  Edamame "nest", yellow sunburst tomatoes "eggs", apple slices, blackberries, and sausage.

100th Day of School

Tomorrow (Friday) is the 100th day of Kindergarten for my little girl.  They have been involved in many fun counting activities this week.  Of course, we need a little "100" lunch to go along with this special day.  

In this bento:  Leftover chicken taco filling, crown shaped whole wheat tortilla with black olive "100" on top, steamed broccoli, cantaloupe balls, and blackberries (although they are very hard to see).  Not pictured but also packed are two small whole wheat tortillas to make small tacos with the fillings.  This lunch is appropriately packed up in our book bento box.  The princess crown came with one of the Disney Cakes & Sweets magazines that I have a subscription to.

I used my daughter's "100th day crown" art project as the inspiration of this bento.
