Stromboli Bento

Stromboli is sort of a baked sandwich, cousin to the calzone.  This one is for my son who likes pepperoni.  The second container has some fresh fruit.
My daughter prefers a deli style stromboli. Her's has swiss cheese, ham and turkey.  Her bento box is slightly larger so she got four slices today:)

Deli Chicken Sandwiches

Another sandwich day for the Krajee family.  This time it was on yummy Ciabatta bread and the sandwiches wrapped in deli paper so they don't fall apart.   Chicken, cheese, lettuce and tomato in the sandwich, sliced pepperoncini in smaller cup and sliced fruit in the larger cup.  Small piece of blondie for dessert.

Bad Badtz

Once again, I've fallen into a rut of not feeling like getting up early to prepare more than an average bento for DD. *sigh* Cutting out Badtz Maru from nori was simple, though, so this is what DD got this morning, along with mahi, carrots, and apple slices that are not pictured. Presentation is still the story of my life. One day!

Carnitas Bento

I made it for dinner last night, so it's another leftover.  But it's one that they like:)  In the box are carnitas, refried in a dry pan to crisp up, tortillas, fresh guacamole, and a side container of fresh salsa.

Steak Fried Rice Wth a Side of Steak

Still using the meat from the BBQ. Today, I chopped the steak up and stir fried it with cold rice and added some chopped kimchi. Then I slice some more steak and pan grilled it, cut it up into bite size pieces. This is lunch for the kids and breakfast for me.
Also in the box are edamame and apples.

Leftover Chicken Bento

We barbequed chicken breasts and beef last night, so we have plenty of meat for bentos this week. The challenge is being creative enough to not have the kids think they are eating the same thing every single day.
In this box: sliced chicken breast on a bed of baby lettuce, rice with Pokemon furikake, edamame skewers, and sliced tomatoes.

Bite-sized Fajita Bento

Last night we had marinated tri-tip for dinner, so for lunch I cut the meat into bite-sized pieces and reheated them in a grill pan.  I made some fresh salsa and fresh flour tortillas and turned it into a mini fajita lunch for the kids.  I added some grapes for color and a nice sweet bite afterwards and put the salsa in a separate container.  I think they will love this.

Nothing too fancy-schmancy today. Just some sammies on homemade bread. Included a pickle and a large strawberry. Hearty, healthy, and delicious:)
