bento lunch: fell off the wagon

I fell off the wagon. The bento blogging wagon, that is.
I had been plowing right along, then...a trip...a stumble... plop.


Let's take a closer look.
fell off the wagon

So, that's me with the strawberry head with crazy green heair and bulging eyes tumbling out of the grape wagon.
Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!

Bento details:
a tractor and wagon sandwich of cream cheese and stawberry preserves on white-wheat bread, fruit leather accents, purple grapes, one kooky strawberry with icing eyes, roasted almonds, baby carrots, cucumber chunks and organic yogurt covered raisins.

The tractor and wagon sandwich was made using a Lunch Punch. A very super special Lunch Punch that is a promotion through the Bega cheese company in Australia. If you live down undah you can search for specially packaged Bega cheese packages for one of four unique Lunch Punch designs! Check out The Lunch Punch's Facebook page for more details!
Unfortunately, I have not been on a recent cheese shopping trip to Australia. But I am a very lucky girl with friends in high places. :)

The bento box is a cute little Everset sandwich box and the bento picks and silicone cup were purchased from allthingsforsale (check out the linky box over there in the right margin!).

I'm hoping to buckle my bento blogging seatbelt and not tumble off into silence again. But my kids  life is crazy these days and time is in such short supply. Deep breath. :)

I discovered your blog a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised to see a new post from you - and what a colourful bento it is! Welcome back!

I came across your blog a month or two ago, and put it on my blog role even though it appeared inactive, because you have put so many wonderful ideas on here!! I was surprised today to see that you had updated, but very excited! I know how life can get away from you, I hope that you are able to fit everything in, including blogging!

Cute bento! I'm really excited to start using your great ideas with my own children!

I'm so glad you are back! My sister and I have been keeping tabs, checking it to see if there was anything new. We have had several worried conversations about she okay? Do you think there was an accident? Will we ever know? I emailed her as soon as I saw this post. Yay!

Gald you're back! I've missed seeing you and your ideas. Kids and life can definitely slow things down, or speed things up, depending on what you're talking about :)
