I know the post title sounds like the beginning to a bag joke, but it made me laugh anyways..lol However there is no stupid ending, just yummy food..and a surprise. The surprise being hubbz asked if he was getting a bento for lunch too. Of course this was after I started cleaning up from making the girls. Oh well. A while back I posted the new black bento I bought it just for him. He has only used it once..and that was at home. He said he didn't need a bento lunch at work.....and now he does. Just not "shapes and stuff" he says.
I guess he can't very well be sitting around with all his Marines and open up a box full of Hello Kitty shaped sami's and flower shaped fruit. Although I would love to be there to see it! So I did a "manly" bento but added my special touch with a press of a motorcycle cookie cutter. I think he'll be surprised when he opens his lunch today :)
I finally got around to trying a recipe I have been drooling over. The homemade granola bars in today's bentos are from the genius mind of Shannon at What's For Lunch At Our House. I followed her recipe and it turned out awesome and everyone loves them! I did add 1/4cup of milled/ground Flaxseed to ours. Plus for the fruit I used a dried blueberries, cherries, raspberries mix with chocolate and peanut butter swirled chips..YUMMY! Thanks Shannon for sharing the awesome recipe, can't wait to experiment some more!
