Hot dog in Fire truck box

My son requested to have a hot dog with ketchup for dipping in his bento.  Your wish is my command! Lunch today is packed up in a little fire truck bento box.



In this bento:  yellow pepper rings, strawberries, orange slices, Applegate hot dog cut into three pieces, ketchup in the Lego container, and cheese stick.

I bought the fire truck bento box a  couple years ago from jbox.com but it looks like they don't sell it anymore.  I did find it available on ebay.  The little Lego container is from BentoUSA.

Old MacDonald had a Farm

♪♫ Old MacDonald had a farm E-I-E-I-O and on his farm he had a cow E-I-E-I-O ♪♫

He also had a pig, chicken, sheep, bunny, tractor, and some seeds to plant!  



In this bento:  mini sweet peppers, farm animal cookies, mini Babybel cheese, pastrami and turkey sandwich shaped like a tractor, orange slices, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds.



This lunch features a tractor sandwich made with a special edition Lunch Punch.  After searching long and hard, the tractor Lunch Punch was finally found on eBay Australia (ebay.com.au).  It underwent a long journey to get to it's new home with me :)

Mardi Gras

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras/ Fat Tuesday/ Shrove Tuesday / Pancake day......many different names for the same day.  The last day to eat all of those delicious fattening foods before Lent begins.


In this bento:  Sugar snap peas, red grapes, pineapple mask, pancakes, little smokies sausages, Mardi Gras M&M mix "beads", and syrup.

I happened to have some M&Ms leftover for Christmas time and I also just happened to have gotten Valentine's Day M&Ms (red, white, pink, and purple) so I pulled the Mardi Gras colors out and made my own Mardi Gras M&Ms mix :)
