Bento- Catch-Up

Well, as part of my title says I do pack bentos for my oldest child. 4/5 days of the week. However, this year Sissy and I are butting heads on what foods to pack, so not all of our lunches have been picture worthy..ha ha :-)  She wants what her friends eat every day  potato chips, individual packs of cookies and teddy grahams, Gatorade, candy bars,LUNCHABLES(yuck) etc....  I don't buy those things on a normal basis so I am not buying them for her lunches!  Don't get me wrong I do not mind to give her a treat sometimes but not junk EVERY day!(I got away with ONLY ONE lunchable in Kindergarten!!!) I am really TRYING to eat more whole foods and not buy AS MUCH processed junk...It's hard...
Here are a few lunches that we have done this year in 1st grade...

This day she had:
Half of a Ham sandwich
Sourdough bites

Taking cue from my Bloggy friend Wendy I am going to do a post very soon on my bento stash...I have been "collecting" my bento for almost 3 years now. I was very lucky that in that time my older brother was in CA and he very graciously went to a Diaso store and bought be a huge bounty!! Check back to see our stash! :-)
