Bento for my Boys 10.6.15

 RaShad’s lunch: sunbutter+honey sandwich, Smuckers fruit pouch, snack mix (goldfish, marshmallows, and a couple lifesavers), fruit cup (strawberries, melon, kiwi), Horizon organic milk
I HATE this Sistema lunch cube btw. It’s a neat concept, but it was not executed well. Basically whatever is in the larger portion gets flipped upside down. Sucks. RaShad didn’t come home with a lid for his Rubermaid kit so I decided to use this lunch box instead, but this is definitely my least favorite.

On another note, Sunday I went shopping for groceries for the next month. It was a long day of meal planning and shopping, but I got it all done and only managed to spend $92. I win at life 😂

My meals are mainly composed of NEW recipes from my Pinterest board. Yes, I spend hours posting items then never look at them again :/ For dinner last night, RaShad and I made this amazingly delicious cheesy BBQ casserole….although the he eventually opted for a pre-made sandwich. He’s such a picky eater, and I give both kids the option of a sandwich when they are not pleased with dinner. The only requirement is they at least taste it. Jayden and I LOVED it. We had it again for dinner tonight (and lunch!). For my family, this would last quite some time as I cut into 8 portions & Jayden will only eat 1/2 of a normal portion.

When reheating a serving for tonight’s dinner, I added about a half tablespoon of BBQ sauce (sweet honey). Yum-my!!

Boo to You!

I typically don’t make cute bentos for lunch on the weekend, but I couldn’t resist!

Ham & cheese ghost sandwiches, 1/2 Zone Perfect Chocolate Caramel Cluster Nutrition Bar, carrots+ranch dressing, Horizon organic milk

I got four Halloween themed cookie cutters from Michael’s for $2.25. Woot woot. For some reason their Halloween stuff is 25% off plus I had a 40% off coupon :)) 

We also got a ton of Halloween decorations because RaShad requested we make the house “spooky.”

We also got an easy Halloween craft from the dollar spot at Target. These cute little wood pumpkins came with paint & a small brush. Such a steal at $1 each! Can you guess which painting belongs to who??


Tomorrow’s lunch: ham & cheese pumpkin sandwich (I tried sooo hard to tint the bread orange, but it still looks a little red :/), cheddar crackers, yellow and orange marshmallows + m&ms for color, tangerine, Cliff Organic Kid’s Bar. They will have Mots for Tots apple juice to drink.
