I Love You Valentine's Lunch

Valentine's day is approaching soon and this is the time of the year that I love filling Nikolai's lunch box with lots of heart shaped foods. Here is the first Valentine's bento of the year and it was easy and quick to make, but says, "I Love You", in so many ways.
It was a joy to make and was packed in an Easylunchboxes container.

I am sure he will be surprised to see salad in his lunch box. Lately, he has not been too keen on lettuce or any salad dressings, but I know that he'll at least eat the cucumber slices, tomato and carrot slices and, maybe, a bite of the lettuce.

I Love You, Valentine's Bento School Lunch

In this bento lunch:
  • Main compartment: A sandwich with heart and letters cut from mild cheddar cheese and a salad in a silicone cup with cucumber, carrot, and tomato cut into heart shape.
  • Top left: Halos mandarin orange with a cupcake pick.
  • Top right: Seedless red grapes in a pink silicone cup.
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Roll-ups/ Pinwheels lunches in Easylunchboxes

Happy Monday, and I hope you had a great weekend. It's raining and gloomy this morning, but I am thankful for the nice weather during the weekend. Today I would like to share with you how some of the lunches I made did not turn out looking how I wanted them to be. But hey, I've learned that as long as it is not school lunch, Nikolai doesn't mind at all. I don't always make cute lunches and many days the lunches that I packed did not make it to this blog, they may have been leftovers from dinner or some simple ones like these.

Nikolai loves Asiago cheese and turtles, but I was in a hurry and decided to make roll-ups with a turtle cup and cupcake pick but these roll-ups did not turn out quite right. The cheese was too thick and was a challenge to roll. On the bright side, he came home with an almost empty lunch box except a few baby carrots.

These simple lunches were packed in our Easylunchboxes container.

In this bento lunch:

  • Top right: Goldfish crackers.
  • Bottom right: Organic baby carrots with a turtle cupcake pick
Here is another roll-ups lunch which took me less than 10 minutes to pack.

Puppy bento

Perhaps I have written earlier that we have a little poodle. He is a very cute little fellow and others who meet him when we are out for walks continue to think he is just a puppy. In actuality, he is fifteen years going on more. His intense curiosity earned him the name Snoopy.

This puppy bento is quite easy to make and one day I will probably make a special poodle theme bento. For this one I simply decorated a sandwich with part of the bread crust for ears, a slice of cheddar cheese cut to a circle shape and raisins for a face. This lunch was packed in a Fit & Fresh bento kit.
