This bento is brought to you by the color green! :)
My little lad will surely have the luck o' the Irish with him today with this lunch in hand.... and he's going to need some luck because he insisted on not wearing any green today!
He has sliced green apple and kiwi fruit on the bottom; pickles, Wheat Thin crackers with green cream cheese, a little lucky silicone cup of green treats in the corner (gold coins, green gummy worm, green Skittles).
The little silicone cup is very cute - it has a shamrock imprint inside! :) I am lucky to have an Irish lassie of a friend who acts as my personal bento shopper in California. This was from her last shopping excursion. Lucky, right? Very.
My boy has green ice water (green ice cubes too!) to drink...
I also made green garlic bread (coloring the butter green), but once it was toasted it looked really yucky. I was certain he wouldn't eat it, so I left it out and added in more fruit. I tucked a cereal bar into his lunchbox aside the bento box for good measure in case he needs more to eat. I have a feeling today's lunch is going to be heavy on the goofing off and light on the actual eating, though. ;-)
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
