Bento for Baby 18: The Inadvertent Patriotic Bento
The bento catch up continues. My laptop was occupied the past couple weeks streaming Wimbledon and World Cup, so I didn't get much blogging done. This bento is from July 3rd. I started packing lunch for this bento first and realized I used red and white silicone cups, and then realizing the date I decided to go with it and used a blue cup to pack the yogurt, which I was planning to mix with blueberries and strawberries anyway. So there you have it, an initially inadvertent, red, white and blue bento to celebrate the 4th of July. Now for the details. For breakfast, in addition to the homemade plain yogurt with organic blueberries and strawberries, I packed a couple sun butter oatmeal balls, a spoon for the yogurt and a couple cut up strawberries. Lunch included leftover pasta from the night before made with some beautiful tomatoes from our CSA, basil and ricotta, some frozen peas and edamame in the white silicone cup and some cut red grapes. This was all packed into the small green World Market tiffin.
