bento lunch...

Since we get out of school at 11:30 right now, Little Bit and I are both usually ready to eat lunch as soon as we get in the car!  Alot of times we have errands to run after school or are meeting friends to play.  So I pack lunch for us quite a bit.  I love the idea of a divided lunch container, or bento box if you so choose!  ;)

They provide you with a convenient way to pack your lunch in one container and cut down on waste.  {I am probably a baggie over user...oops!}  Plus I think these boxes can help you make your lunch more creative and maybe even more invite-able to my little eater.  I love using my little silicone cupcake liners as extra dividers.  The little picks are fun to use too.  I found these heart topped ones pictured at the dollar tree.

This particular day we were staying after school for play group and needed lunch.  Pepper jelly cheese ball is in the top left compartment {Little Bit just loves this!} with pickles underneath.  The right side has rolled up turkey and ham with little picks to eat it, crackers for the cheese ball and grapes in the cupcake liner. 

This lunch wasn't super creative or anything but was still fun to eat!  The divided container I used is Ziploc.  I'm currently on the lookout for other neat divided containers because as Spring approaches I see more packed lunches in our future! Have you jumped on the bento bandwagon?

What is pepper jelly? Is the same as jalapeno jelly?
