Bento - trial one

My son got a Bento set for Christmas from his "best friend in the whole world." As luck would have it today was the first day due to weather, schedules, and illnesses that the boys could get together since before Christmas. He was thrilled to get the Bento set. He had no idea what it was but he liked all the little cups and stuff. He spent the whole ride home talking about all the big things he would put in there for dinner. I suggested we try it for lunch tomorrow but by the time we got home he was set on using it for dinner. So motivated in fact he unwrapped it all and washed it all by himself....that's motivation. After seeing the size of the cups and how they fit into the box he got to work looking through the cabinets for what he wanted to fill them with. Nice to have help deciding on dinner tonight. So here was his choice for his first meal in a Bento box: He had pizza cubed, black beans, yogurt and kiwi. Interesting combination but it was his choice and he did the thinking and the arranging. He naturally wasn't satisfied with the amount he had and needed several more pizza slices but overall it was quite the success. He loved the gift! Thanks!!!

Two posts in one day! I'm glad he likes the Bento box. Tell him to pack it tighter so that he has enough food in it :) Can't wait to see others!
