Veggies Bento (142)

Last night’s trick or treating was so much fun! We left work early to take the kids out and it was still pouring rain all the way home, but when we got to MIL’s house, the rain was just drizzling here and there. We ate dinner and got the kiddos dressed. Buddy was very resistant, protesting the entire time I took off his clothes and then finally took off running in just his diaper and I had to chase him around for a bit. He had some serious issues with wearing his costume and kept crying, “Nooooo! Nooooo!” whenever I tried to put it on until finally I said, “You want puffs??” (those star shaped Gerber things) and his eyes glazed over and he said, “Puff.” He let me put it on no problem! Yay, problem solved right?

Everyone is dressed and standing against the wall except him, who is looking at the camera going, “Nooooo! Nooooo!”, going limp, etc. I tell him, “Please just stand by your sister!” He is fussing fussing fussing then suddenly goes, “Puff?” As soon as the word “yes” escaped my lips he stood over by them and grinned ear to ear saying, “Eez!” Not even two and a negotiator already. 🙁

I had nothing but fruits and vegetables to put into a bento today, so that’s what I ended up with. I’ve got a bunch of cucumber slices, which I will sprinkle with salt before I eat, then three colors of bell peppers with some fat free Ranch dressing in the little cup. It’s oh so healthy, no??

Hahaha!! Second layer: NOT! I’ve got some Halloween munching to do and so I picked out one of my favorites, peanut M&Ms! I figure this is a much better portion than if I were to go buy a regular sized bag from the vending machine. I’ve also got this lil packet of sour apples and then some sakura shaped banana slices. There’s also a little hidden Laughing Cow Light Swiss wedge in there.

Today is November 1st, I leave for Fan Fest in less than two weeks! Ahhhhh!! Panic panic panic!!!

    At the worst you could add m&m’s like I do to Kai’s, in a little sauce cup, prob half the calories too! I like how you tricked us with the title!

    I’ve been using little sauce cups for treats too – Jelly Belly jelly beans, M&Ms, whatever. It’s nice to have a little treat, but the tiny condiment cups keep me from going overboard. :3
