Number one, please excuse the wrinkles in the fabric. It's killing my eyes, and if it's doing the same to you, well, I sincerely apologize. It's a scrap from the Jessica Jones Outside Oslo fabric line and it's fabulous, but goodness, it needs to be ironed. I'm playing around with formatting and styling and Bentos in general, so please bear with me.
Number two. I'm no good at food photography, but I'm letting it go because I don't want it to hold me back from just doing what I want to do. Maybe I'll get better; maybe I won't. Either way, I'm moving forward and I hope you'll be gracious in excusing my imperfections.
Now that's enough excuse making. On we go.
Today's practice Bento consisted of a peanut butter and Nutella (ahhh, Nutella!) sandwich, apple slices, a hard-boiled egg and edamame.
Snack was Snap Pea Crisps (a guilty pleasure of mine--probably far from healthy even though they're made from peas and rice) and quick apple salad inspired by a side dish offered at Cheddars. The apple salad simply consists of some diced apples, dried cranberries, a tablespoon of plain yogurt, a drizzle of honey and a dash of cinnamon. Yum. The yogurt helps to keep the apples from browning and it makes it more special for the kiddos so I'm calling it a win.
Do you have any quick snacks that are a win with your kids? I feel like I'm going to need some new ideas soon. Lately mine have been enjoying hard-boiled eggs and smoothies.
