Last week my kids were on Spring Break and one day we took a day trip to the aquarium. We had plans to have lunch at a brick-oven pizzeria that was within walking distance of the aquarium and therefore packing lunches was not necessary. Of course, being that we have a gaggle of children, packing snacks is always necessary. When I was in the kitchen putting together snacks for the day my husband said several times "remember, we are having lunch out, you don't have to pack lunches!" and I would say, "I know, I know!". And as he was packing the van he called in again "no bentos!", and I replied "I know, I know!".
But these things have a way of coming together, you see, I was practically powerless to stop it.
Little girl's snack - hummus on whole wheat white bread, cucumber and fishies.
It only took like two minutes to throw together. So it's not really a bento, is it? ;-)
