I packed a fun lunch for The Girl this Tuesday, inspired by my friend Wendy from Wendolonia. I received a copy of her new book, Everyday Bento, for review, and the kids pored through it immediately. The Girl picked one specific bento for me to take inspiration from, and I did my take on Wendy's Butterfly Bento.
She has some chicken salad (I made mine with a little apple and grapes and Miracle whip. She loves it!) with an apple skin butterfly cut out on top, in a butterfly silicone cup, some grape "grass" with skewers for flowers, strawberries with a butterfly cut out of one strawberry laid on top, some bread, and Annie's bunny grahams. They seemed to fit the theme. For snack, she has a granola bar and an apple.
I know that I will be finding much more inspiration from Everyday Bento - the kids have been eyeing the Lego lunch and dreaming.. that might need to happen. I hope that you pick up a copy - Wendy has not only great, eye-catching lunches, but also delicious recipes throughout the whole book.
