Grilled Cheese Picnic Lunches

Picnic lunches at the park.  My daughter requested grilled cheese for this outing.  I wrapped the sandwiches in tin foil to help keep them warm until we were at the park and ready to eat them.

In mom's lunch:  Blueberries, strawberries, and a grilled cheese sandwich.

The kids had identical lunches and the halves of their grilled cheese sandwich are stacked on top of each other.

In the kids' lunches: Apricot halves, strawberries, and a grilled cheese sandwich.

*The containers I used to pack the kids' lunches in were from the Target dollar spot.

More Day Camp Lunches

More day camp lunches and snacks.  In today's post I am sharing another week's worth of day camp lunches that I made for my daughter earlier this summer.


Lunch:  Ham roll ups, baked fries, ginger cookies, strawberries, and cucumbers.

Snacks:  Yogurt covered star cookies and plantain chips.  Blueberries, baby carrots, and cotton candy grapes.


Lunch:  Leftover pizza, baby carrots, cucumber slices, and mango chunks.

Snacks: The first snack was packed in our new Frozen bento box! Blueberries and edamame sprinkled with sea salt.  Apple sauce cup.


Lunch:  Sweet peppers, cucumbers, rocket shaped cheese crackers and My Melody and friend ham sandwiches.  I kept this lunch on the smaller side because I felt the snacks were rather large on this day.

Snacks:  Regular tortilla chips & blue corn tortilla chips with salsa for dipping.  Cherries and cotton candy grapes.


Lunch:  Half of a cheeseburger (leftover from dinner), baby carrots, strawberries, cheese stick, and apple sauce.

Snacks:  Cherries, orange slices, and Scooby-Doo graham cracker sticks.


Lunch:  Crinkle cut cucumbers, cherries, cotton candy grapes, and a pita wrap.  The pita has ham, salami, sprouts, olives, mushrooms, and shredded cheese.

Snacks:  Pita crackers and black bean hummus.  Mango chunks and sweet peppers.

Treat 4 U Bento

An orange colored bento with a message.  The "message" appeared to me as I tossed a handful of cheese crackers into the bento box and then I added the "4 U" with the cookies :)

In this bento:  Turkey and tortilla roll ups, orange slices, baby carrots, Scrabble Cheez-Its, and cinnamon cookies.

Independence Day

Happy Independence Day!

In this bento:  Black grapes, cherries, yogurt covered star cookies, United States shaped cream cheese and strawberry jelly sandwich, and star cheese crackers.

I had planned on using the patriotic (red, white, & blue) goldfish in this bento.  However,  I could not find any at the grocery store and I just ended up using what was in my pantry at home.  Cheddar star crackers to the rescue.
