Breakfast Bentos

Last night brought us to about 95% moved out of the old place, so I’ve got plans to go do one more load and then we start cleaning it up for what we’re hoping will be a quick sale. Man, I would never have expected just how much CRAP I had hiding all over the place. I mean, I knew, but not to the extent that it’s been revealed to be during The Purge.

Still, I’m not purging nearly enough to satisfy Mr. Pikko. Last night he convinced me to throw out my giant stack of Scrapbooks Etc magazines and I told him to do it before I changed my mind. I had wanted to try selling them on Craigslist, but realized I have so many more important things to do, like finishing painting the house!

Breakfast Bentos

These are two breakfast bentos that I made during the summer when my niece slept over one night. I made the two girls breakfast and they giggled their way through about half and I offered to pack it up for them to eat at school. Baby Girl’s is on the left and Baby J’s is on the right.

We recently got a new acquisition in our home: a dishwasher. It’s a housewarming gift from my in-laws and it is like a gift from heaven since I’ve discovered that I can just toss rinsed off bento boxes in there instead of having to labor over the grease that doesn’t ever seem to come out of the little corners. Wheeee!

  • Happy moving! As much as I hate to do it, it is a mental offload as much as it is a purge of actual stuff. These bento bfasts look delish!

  • How lucky is your niece to have you packing her bento!
    I threw a lot of crap too when I shifter house the last time, and I had to do it without any second thought as I was worried I’ll end up changing my mind too! 🙂

    Okay I love how you call it The Purge. Ive been doing a little bit of that here and there this summer.
    What a yummy looking bento! I have missed your posts SOOOO much. I haven’t been bento-ing (Is that even a word???) as much without all your posts to give me ideas and push me to make myself a bento daily. Its hard I just started interning as a teacher and waking at 6:45am to be there at 8am….til 4:30pm.
    The 1 hour 15min is alot of me tim because the school is only 15 minutes from me so it is getting up and dressed, eating a good breakfast and watching a little tv before i go to school.
    My 1st graders think “Your Beanto (AHAHAA) boxes are so cute/ROCK!!!!! Can I see what’s inside??!?!?” Lol…. I have one that looks like a rectangular hamburger (its my largest for when I know I will be super hungry) and they can’t stop asking to see it again. I crack up so much.
    The teachers have become curious and want to know more because I said “Its portion control so what you see and pack is what you get, and you pack a little of every food group so your body gets everythings” They think its fantastic.
    Done with my super long happy post here.

  • Hope it’s going well – seems like that last 5% is always the hardest!

    Tell me about it!
    We moved my very pregnant daughter and her husband yesterday to their new house.
    Because she has been on bedrest, not a lot of the “stuff” had been sifted through before hand…it has made me determined to go through my pile o stuff at home and purge and organize!
    Good luck in your new place!
