Lunch for The Boy: 11.8.11

The Bento Blog Network has a theme of Sandwich balls this week, so I thought I'd give it a try.

To make sandwich balls, you take a piece of bread and cut it into a circle (I used store bought whole wheat bread, since I am out of homemade... for shame, I know...)  You can also cut it into smaller circles (like in my picture here), but I had better luck with one larger circle.

Take a largish piece of saran wrap and put the bread on top of it on your hand.  Put a small amount of filling on it (I used some taco meat, cheese, and a little sauce). Press the sides of the bread together, and then wrap the saran around it to form a ball.

Voila!  Sandwich ball!

For The Boy's lunch, I used some Bento cutters (this great transportation set from Allthingsforsale, school bus shape) to make the balls into school buses!  Very cute.
Applesauce: 10g, pretzels: 11g
So anyhow, for his snack he has some pretzel sticks and applesauce.
Apple: 8g, crackers: 4g, raisins: 8g, taco filled bus sandwich balls: 40g, oranges: 15g, Whoppers: 16g
In his lunch he has these bus sandwich balls (taco filling), mandarin oranges, apple slices, raisins, candy corn cheese crackers, and some whoppers from his Halloween stash.

Pin It!
