Lunch in a Box

Monday, August 24, 2009

Have you ever visited someone's site and been instantly inspired? That's how I felt when I stumbled upon the site Lunch in a Box, which is dedicated to bento box lunches. I've been using laptop lunches for Jack's lunches for the past year, so I've been doing the whole eco-friendly/bento thing for a while. But, wow. I don't think my lunches look anything like these...



There's a section on the site with tips for everything from making and freezing sandwiches ahead of time so morning isn't so much of a rush...

Using those silicone cupcake liners as reusable dividers in a simple tupperware container...

Making and freezing pasta so it's just the right temperature at lunchtime...

And how to create pancakes on Sunday for lunch on Wednesday (that little car, by the way, is a boiled egg she molded using an ice cream sandwich mold).

Just looking through her Flickr pictures inspires me to try new things in the kids lunches... or even my own. Bento box lunches work for people of any age (especially if you are watching your portion sizes).

Tell me, what do you normally pack in a lunch? Wouldn't you rather open the lid and find one of these in there rather than the same old PB&J?
