Bento for Baby 71: Dan's Awesome Pancakes and Brussels Sprout Pasta
Big exciting news here at Bento for Baby - Baby Girl has a handy dandy new insulated container! OK, it's really not that thrilling. . . I had been searching for a small thermos to keep dishes warm, rather than having school heat things up. Most thermoses are rather large for toddler-sized amounts of food, so I was excited to find a nice little 8 ounce one from Lunchbots. It's a little too deep for her to eat directly out of right now, so they have to transfer her food to another container for eating, but I think it might save them a little bit of time at school.
In today's bento, Baby Girl had two of Dan's original Awesome Pancakes from the freezer and some pieces of frozen pineapple and mango in the white silicone cup. Packed in her brand new thermos for lunch, underneath all the shredded Parmigiano Reggiano (Baby Girl's most favorite cheese), she had some pasta with shredded brussels sprouts and bacon leftover from dinner the night before. With the pasta I gave her some steamed green beans dressed in olive oil, a couple slices of pear and one sunbutter oatmeal ball.
