Bento Lunch: Back To School Apple Bento- Day 2

I am still trying very hard to get back into normal routine, seems like everything is in a rush and I desperately need to resume my time management. I made a quick bento today and since I don't have a small apple cutter, I used my small pumpkin cutter as a substitute. I wonder if N will notice the difference.


In this bento: Top tier contains apple shaped cucumber slices and pretzel snaps. Bottom tier contains an apple shaped sandwich with food safe marker accents, candy eyes, nori mouth and apple shaped cantaloupe. Packed in a double tiered bento box. Linking to Sunscholars

  2. I love both back to School bentos. The pumpkin cutter works pretty well as an apple cutter. :)

  5. Hi Rina!
    This is the cutest Apple Bento ever! The little expression on the apple is precious!! I am right with you on needing the routine to stay on track...I have to learn to live by one or I'm a train wreck! If it's not too way off topic I'd love for you to share what your routine is like and how you fit in your bento making time! I can tell you've learned the best way to go!

    1. Hi Berrygirl, thank you so much for your kind comment and glad that you love it :)
      My routine, let me see...I usually cut my fruits and veggies the night before and will assemble the lunch in the morning. If I get back early in the evenings, I sometimes make his lunches in the evenings. One thing for sure, I do not spend more than 20-25 mins making his lunches and I am not a morning person. I did share some of the ways I pack my lunches on the above page, 'my tips for speed'. I am all about speed and I learn not to beat myself up if the lunch is not cute or presentable. I also try to pack foods that he eats and incorporate new varieties at times. Honestly, N prefers my lunches compared to school lunches and that is all that matters :) I hope that answers your question :)
