It’s Friday! Today is a lazy day at camp for Peyton. They spend the day swimming and playing all day. They even have the ice cream truck come by! So, I thought I would make her lunch extra special today. I decided to make it with nachos and cheese! This was really easy, all I did was put some round tortilla chips in the bottom and covered it with shredded nacho cheese. I knew it would be a hit because Peyton loves cheese.
We still had some blueberries and blackberries in the fridge so that was my fruit choice. I don’t want them to spoil. I also used strawberry applesauce today. It came right out of one of those squeeze pouches. It was nearing the expiration date so in it goes!
Now I needed some protein and I didn’t want to throw shredded sandwich meat in the box so I grabbed those pepperoni bites and put those in. Peyton loves them so I knew she would eat them.
We had gone to the movies earlier this week and had some Reeses Pieces left over that we didn’t finish. I decided those could be her treat.
All these are staples in our home that were open and about to spoil. Today’s bento box came from just looking in the fridge and seeing what was going to expire or go bad. I’m starting to get into this lunch box making!
Here are a few of the items we used to make today’s lunch –
