Adventures in Bento: November 2-7, 2014

on November 17, 2014

Wow, talk about radio silence, huh? I’m so sorry I’m so late with this post. We’re still trying to get life back into some kind of routine now that my father in law is living with us. Also, I have finally finished my algebra class. Yesterday was the last day and I breathed a sigh of relief when I finished my final test. It’s been a very rough 7 weeks taking that class, along with everything else that has gone on, and I’m very glad it’s over. I’m also extremely proud of the A I earned in it. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I’ve decided to take a 2 week break from school to try to catch up on other things that have fallen by the wayside, one being this blog. πŸ™‚


Monday was a day for penguins. Strange, googly-eyed penguins. The girls got a PB&J penguin sandwich, whale cheddar crackers, some pear slices with sprinkles, yogurt, and a few leftover Halloween candies. (Boy did they get a ridiculous amount of Halloween candy this year!)


Tuesday was met with the last of the mini frozen waffles. My larders were low, so they got what I could find. There are four mini waffle PB&J sandwiches on the bottom tier and frozen edamame, applesauce, and some candy on the top. The girls have requested no more yogurt in their lunch, but they have said applesauce is A-OK.


Wednesday is pizza day at school, so they begged for school lunch. I wanted them to have something slightly healthy, so I sent these small boxes with about a quarter of an apple and a few grape tomatoes in it. Oh, and more Halloween candy for a treat.


Thursday was a rough morning for me. I had been up most the night with my FIL because he was feeling poorly and then had to teach a knitting class right after dropping the girls off at school. That meant that I had to actually get myself completely ready in the morning instead of just throwing some pants on to drop the girls off. So, since it was hectic and I was tired, I opted for a half can of ABC’s with meatballs. I also included a small box of applesauce and grape tomatoes.


By Friday, though, things were starting to look up. We’d had a home health nurse come to see my FIL and help get his meds straightened out, which really made him feel better. I got a full nights sleep and was able to make a proper lunch that morning. On the bottom tier we have PB&Js in the shape of a pig, an apple, and a tree. Delaney especially likes it when she gets the rather small, two bite sandwiches. I like them because it helps to use up as much of the bread as possible. I also threw in some goldfish on the bottom tier. On the top tier we have a Babybel cheese, apple chunks with sprinkles, a few grape tomatoes, and some jello. I had made the jello for my FIL and went ahead and put a bit in silicon cups so they’d be ready for lunches that day. It worked nicely and I think I need to do it more. πŸ™‚
