All Star Lunches

All my school age sproutlets have stars in their lunchboxes today :)

Granny Smith apple with Bella's first initial, grape tomatoes, 
peppered turkey & sharp cheddar on a whole wheat bagel.

 Honey ham roll-ups, Granny Smith apple,
  raisins and whole wheat bagel for Beanstalk.

Pickle has a round sandwich with a star
 and a star sandwich with his first initial.

I hope all my little stars have an all-around good day :)

It's their Daddy's birthday today! He'll get to be the star this evening, with cake! Birdie & Sprout said he should have a chocolate cake with pink frosting, and what a nice Daddy, he said that's what he's always wanted. So the little girls and I will be baking and frosting today, and getting all chocolatey and pink  


  1. lol, cute! love ALL the lunches!
    Happy Birthday to Daddy too! :)

  2. Happy Bday to Daddy! I love the star theme. Stars always make me smile :)

    Next time Mom and I come for a visit we would like lunchs with our initials in the sandwichs. Another great job Slim ....... love you guys lots. xooxxoxo

    1. Ha ha, Mia Bella would just LOVE helping me make a bento for her Grandpa :)

  4. I want to go back to school.. be a kid again.. and get these lunches!!

  5. How do you get your apples to not turn brown? I still can't figure it out. My little one doesn't like lemon juice (too sour) and apple juice didn't work. Advice?

    1. I use a product called Fruit Fresh, found with canning goods. It's fairly inexpensive, and I have yet to go through the jar I bought in October. I did an apple browning experiment here: http://www.bentonbetterlunches.com/2011/10/great-apple-browning-experiment.html
      Orange juice also worked pretty well :)
