Four Bento Lunches!

Today is the first day back to school after a four day weekend. I decided I wasn't really in the mood to be very creative. I just really wanted to throw lunches together quickly. So that's what I did. I made four simple lunches in twenty minutes. Yep. Twenty minutes! I pulled out the trusty sandwich cutters and made lunch.

  Lunch for the 11 year old. She has a ham sandwich, yogurt star cookies, cashews, carrots, cucumbers and a half of a clementine.

This is lunch for my niece. She has a cute flower sandwich, pretzels, star cookies, cucumbers, carrots, cucumbers and a half of a clementine.

This is a simple lunch for the boy. He has a P.B.&J. puzzle sandwich, pretzels, a half of a clementine and a yogurt smoothie drink.

This is lunch for my youngest. She has a princess frog ham sandwich, a half a clementine, a Babybell, star cookies, pretzels, sweet peppers, sugar snap peas, cucumbers and carrots.

This was lunch. It was simple and quick to make.

Easy Lunches!

Man, Oh man. This has a busy week. We had a couple of sick days, a day spent dealing with a broken wrist, a day getting the oldest girls homeschool plan strait and a snow day! Whew! What a week. I am saying T.G.I.F. tomorrow! I need a breather. We have been hoping around my house since the new year began. Hopefully I can get the schedule back in place next week. I also hope to bring Fandom Friday back next week. I do enjoy my geek inspired lunches. lol As well as my awesome fellow bloggers geek inspired lunches. Tomorrow the kids are buying lunch. Don't shoot me! Ha! Ha! Here are a few lunches from today.

This first lunch is for my 11 year old. She is in band so I thought the music notes added a nice touch. She has mini ham sandwiches, pretzel crisp, pineapple, grapes, carrots, cucumbers and mini all natural chocolate chip cookies.

My youngest girl requested a kitty cat lunch. She has a cat sandwich, pineapple, strawberries, carrots, pretzel crisp, mini yogurt star cookies and chocolate chip mini cookies.

This is lunch for the boy. He has a pepperoni star kabob, pretzel crisp, pineapple, grapes and mini chocolate chip cookies.                                                                                                                      
Have a great weekend!

Today was another busy one. I was hot on the road for about four hours! I had to get my three younger children to the doctor, my middle child to a specialist and then get to the medical store to pick up a wrist brace. Yes a wrist brace. Turns out that the wrist is broken after all. I just knew it was. Thank you doctor for confirming my diagnosis! You all know us mamas just know these things. lol
No medical certification needed. Ha! Ha! Anyways, here is lunch!

This is lunch for the youngest. She has ham stuffed mini pita bread, star cookies, Babybell, a half a clementine, grapes, peppers, cauliflower and mini cucumbers.

This is lunch for my niece. She has ham stuffed mini pita bread, a half a clementine, grapes, olives, cucumbers, a Babybell and star cookies.

This is lunch for my picky boy. He has pepperoni stuffed mini pita bread, a half a clementine, grapes, animal crackers and pretzels.

We got to finally make it to Trader Joes last week after an appointment we had was close by. I was thrilled because we haven't been in about two years. I know it is a long time but I just don't go to the area much. I will tell you this though. I will make a special trip from now on if I have to because I love Trader Joes. I love that I can get some of the kids favorite things and not worry about artificial ingredients.

Sandwiches & Salad!

Man last week was brutal. The hubs had an accident at work (he is fine). Then the middle girl came home from school with a twisted wrist and swollen fingers. That was Thursday. So I rushed her to urgent care only to be told that it wasn't broken but if it still hurt Sunday night that she would need to see a specialist because, guess what? It may still be broken. Well it is Sunday evening and it still hurts, it's still swollen and she still can't move the wrist and three fingers. So back to the doctor tomorrow for her and probably on to the orthopedic doctor as well. That's not it! Now the two younger kiddos have fevers, headaches and tummy aches. And the oldest is all itchy! Oh man what a week! No wonder I didn't get a chance to post lunches. Heck I didn't even get a chance to make lunches Thursday and Friday! But that's okay. All will be back to normal soon. Here are a couple of lunches from Wednesday.

This is lunch for my niece. She has a lovely salad, Laughing Cow cheese, pepperonis, apples, a half of a clementine and honey mustard pretzel crisp.

This is lunch for the youngest girl. She has a ham sandwich, apples, a half of a clementine, carrots, peppers, cheese, cashews and peppers.

Robot Lunches!

A couple of weeks ago I won this really cool robot cutter from Bento USA! I know, I know! It is so exciting to win a prize! I decided it was time to break this cool little robot out of the box and show you the newest CuteZCute addition! I made four lunches with this handy little cutter. Here are two of them that I made for the girls. Yes, the girls got robots. Robots aren't just for boys you know!

In this lunch she has a turkey robot sandwich, cashews, pretzels, an orange, cucumbers and carrot sticks.

This lunch is the same as the one above. The robots are just a little different.

Hello Cupcake!

Today is our first day back to school. The kids were out for two whole weeks! They are ready to go back and I am ready to reclaim my house. Over the Christmas break I did a lot of searching for lunch inspiration on Pinterest. I have a huge addition to cookie cutters and those sweet little decorated sugar cookies. I could look at them for hours! I also adore the food styling of Kawaii! I love the cute little faces on all the foods! I decided that I would combine these two loves into my bento lunches. This would be my inspiration for the new years lunches. Here's lunch!

Lunch is packed in our brand new Laptop Lunchboxes! This is lunch for my youngest. She has peanut butter cupcake sandwiches, peppers, carrots, cucumbers, apples, Annie's animal crackers and cheddar crackers. Did you know that these Annie's treat are all natural? They are dyed using veggies, fruits and spice extracts! How wonderful is that?                                                                               

This is our other Laptop Lunchbox! This is lunch for my middle girl. She wanted salad and leftover chicken bites. So she has both of those, a side cup of dressing, cucumbers, carrots, apples and Annie's treats!

I must say that I am very pleased with our Laptop Lunchboxes! You can get a lot of yummy food in these boxes. I didn't even have to purchase new lunch bags. These fit perfect in our lunch bags.
