Bento Box Lunches

I completely cheated because I did not purchase actual Bento Boxes....but I did use what I had and decided to make up four of these (mainly because I only had 4 available plastic containers). :)

It was so easy to make these and the boys loved helping!  I'm excited because maybe I can get some painting done on our upstairs tomorrow since lunch is already ready!

My boxes contain:

3 Ham Slices

Carrot sticks


2-3 pieces of Monterrey Cheese

2-3 pieces of Medium Cheddar Cheese

4 Ritz Crackers

I have a menu prepped for this week and Kevin already did all the shopping...slowly but surely....I am getting more energy.  Since my morning sickness is still hanging around (I'm 19 weeks pregnant today), I'm thankful for the boost in energy that has allowed me to accomplish some projects.  We have a lot more to do before the baby gets here, but I will continue to praise God for the bursts of energy, no matter how short lived, because they're allowing for things to get done!

Last night I was able to put up 6 pounds of sweet corn that I blanched and cut from the cobb.  It's not a lot, but I was thankful for the amount AND it was free from our neighbors!  Thank You Lord!!!
