Bento #79

Surimi & carrot sticks, lite ranch dressing in Hello Kitty container, mashed sweet potato, apple shaped golden delicious apple slices, banana cream filled biscuit.

Maisie really hasn't been eating much all week and today was just another day of the same. I was hoping that because she barely ate breakfast she's do well at lunchtime but all she ate was about half of the surimi & carrots and one apple slice. After school in the car she did eat the remaining apple slices and the biscuit. Then come dinner time she just picked at her food not wanting much. She doesn't seem sick and she's full of energy, especially considering she barely sleeps, so I guess when she's hungry she'll eat.

Bento #78

Carrot coins, beef ravioli, flowers made out of golden delicious apple, cheese & carrot, Pocky.

When I picked Maisie up from school today she told me that she ate all of her bento and that it was delicious and pretty. Sure enough, she did eat it all with only a couple scraps of carrot remaining in the box.

A few florets of broccoli came home with Maisie, everything else was eaten.

Bento #76

Steamed broccoli, lite Ranch dip, roast pork, strawberry jelly, Bombolin cookie.

As expected, most of the pork came home uneaten. Maisie really needs to be coaxed to eat meat but then once she does, she really likes it. After her nap I encouraged her to eat the pork, which she did, but she especially enjoyed it as she ate it with dip!

I've had numerous emails asking questions so I've made a page of the questions and answers which can be found here or by clicking on the Questions & Answers link in the side bar. I will update the page when there are new questions. Thanks for being interested in Maisie's bentos, following along with us and for asking so many great questions.

Bento #75

Toasted cheese sandwich, carrots & Marie golden delicious apple slices.

Maisie ate all of the sandwich but most of the carrots and apples remained. In fact, Maisie really ate very little today, a very small breakfast, a tiny box of raisins for morning snack, no afternoon snack and for dinner she just wanted scrambled eggs. Hopefully it's just this extremely cold weather we've been having making her not want to eat and not that she's getting sick or something like that, don't need my little girl being sick.

Bento #74

Laughing Cow light cheese, raisins, Hello Kitty golden delicious apple slices.

Today was pajama & pancake day at Maisie's school. Since they were eating pancakes her teachers asked that we send in something small to have in addition to the pancakes. I decided to go with more of a snack bento which she enjoyed. Only the cheese went uneaten as she said she was full from the pancakes and apples.

Bento #73

Thomas the Tank Engine toasted cheese sandwich, apple slices, peanut butter boy cookie, Bombolin cookie.

Today was dress in blue day at Maisie's school and I must have been blue packing her bento as it's totally uninspired and very beige. That being said, Maisie ate every morsel so even though boring the bento was a success.

Bento #72

Garlic bread & spaghetti bolognese decorated with carrot flowers, parmesan cheese in the bunny container, chocolate cream roll slices, Marie shaped golden delicious apple slices.

Both of the chocolate cream roll slices and two of the apple slices returned home with Maisie but she finished them all off after her nap.

Just a few little pieces of meat went uneaten so this bento was a success.

Most of the apple slices came home but Maisie finished them off later in the day.

Bento #69

This meal was a hit and though she didn't eat it all at school, she managed to finish it off on the drive home.

Bento #68

I'm slowly easing my way back into cooking and preparing bento again. Here's Maisie's first bento of 2009 with many more to come!

Chicken & cheese quesadilla, sliced apple & carrot. Simple yes, but she loved it, finishing all but two slices of carrot.

Returning soon

It has been FOREVER since my last post and I'm sorry to say it's been that long since I last packed bento. Spending all of November being sick with half of it being in the hospital followed by a lot better December, spending most of that month on the beach in Aruba, didn't have me spending anytime in the kitchen. Maisie returns to school next week and now that I'm feeling better, bentos will be packed and posting will resume. I've missed reading all my favorite bento blogs and can't wait to start catching up again.
