Happy Snail Bento Lunch

Snail bento lunch

I had fun making and eating this Happy Snail lunch. The snail is mashed potato with these eye picks and spinach details. I used a cookie cutter from the Ikea Woodland set to make the snail shape. Since I don’t like nori, I used spinach instead to detail the snail’s shell. As usual, I enjoyed drawing on pistachio shells.

Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.

Contents: Broccoli, orange cheddar mashed potatoes, spinach, chickpeas, spiced tomato sauce, pistachios with food marker details, blueberries

Macaroni and Cheese Lunch for Teen

Mac and cheese stuffed peppers teen lunch

My oldest nephew turned 18 this week! I made this lunch for him to take to school on his birthday. His school has a microwave for students to use so I put the raspberries in a silicone cup so his fruit and chocolate were easy to remove before heating. This is a big meal as I added pasta around the peppers. For a smaller appetite you can just serve in the peppers. But since I made it for a teenage boy I provided a large portion of pasta.

This was my first time stuffing peppers with pasta, in the past I used rice. I had some for my dinner and enjoyed it.

Also featured for the first time is my new EasyLunchBoxes Urban. These easy and convenient containers now come in three color sets: Classic, Brights, and Urban.

Bottom Left: Dove Sea Salt & Caramel Dark Chocolate

Right Side: Three Cheese Macaroni Stuffed Peppers
