Goodbyn Bynto & EasyLunchboxes | long lost Fall Bentos

More bentos from the dark corners of my hard drive. These babies have been hiding since October. Sneaky bentos.

First up, a couple of EasyLunchboxes bentos:

EasyLunchboxes lunch

Despite having no recollection of making this lunch, I know it was Ethan's. I'd recognize that boy's limited pallate a mile away. ;)

- granny smith apple slices
- strawberry cereal bar
- peppered turkey
- fish crackers

And this EasyLunchboxes was certainly for Paige:
Her lunch contained:
- more granny smith apple slices
- a croissant sandwich. If I had to guess it was turkey and cheese. 
- fishies
- grapes

Next up, a couple of Goodbyn lunches....

Ethan's bento:

From left to right, his lunch contained:
- a cereal bar and a granola bar
- apple slices
- pretzels in a jumbo-sized silicone cup and cheddar cheese

Paige's bento lunch, also packed in a Bynto box:
harvest theme Bynto Goodbyn
Her lunch, from top to bottom:
- homemade mini muffins (I can't remember what they were, but they smelled lovely) and pretzels
- cheddar cheese, cut with a mini pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter
- peppered turkey rolls, secured on harvest party picks
- apple slices 

To keep the apple slices fresh and delightful, I dipped each cut side in a bit of lemon juice before packing in the bentos. 
Sometimes kiddos may not like how sour that makes the fruit taste. A tasty and healthy yogurt dip can combat the sourness in a pinch

Hello! I came across your blog a few days ago and now I am hooked! I actually just bought the ELB's and I love them! May I ask where you got the big silicone cup that is holding the croissant sandwich? That can fit quite a lot!

Hi there! Those big silicone cups were purchased at a bento shop in the Bay Area of CA by a friend of mine. Sadly, I have never seen those specific ones for sale online anywhere. :( It's such a pity because they are just the perfect size for ELB!

Oh how I wish we had bento stores where I live! Thanks!

Me too! At least bento supplies are easier to come by online these days. When I first got started in this hobby the only resource was ebay!
