Salad was a hit!

I'd like to start off this post with a "thank you"...Thank you for taking the time to look at my little blog and thank you to those who have taken the time to leave me comments. I love to read your words and am touched by the kind words of encouragement you've given me.
Okay, enough with the mushy stuff...back to lunch!! ;)
Yesterday's salad was a HUGE hit and Ave wanted salad in her lunch for tomorrow. Here's what we came up with:
Ave's Lunch: PB&J pinwheels with cheese leaves (faces are made from cucumber peel), grapes, salad with cherry tomato tulips and pretzels.
Another view of Ave's lunch...trying to jazz up my pictures a bit.

Haley's lunch: Ham and cheese pinwheels, pretzels sticks, salad with cherry tomato tulips, and grapes.

Check out for other great bento ideas!

  2. Love the tulips!! Syd has cherry tomatoes in her lunch tomorrow but we made balloons out of them! :)

  3. Great that the salad was such a hit - it looks so nice in bentos, doesn't it?!

  4. wow, wish my kid would ask for salad once in a while lol You'll have to teach me your tricks. Love the little leaf faces.
