One of my favorite days to commemorate passed by this weekend: Read Across America Day … AKA the birthday of Dr. Seuss!!!!
Every year, these bentos are so much fun to plan and create, and this year was no exception. Going with the classic One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish had been on my mind since last year and, with images of fruit pizza whirling in my brain, this bento ended up so perfectly Dr Seuss-ish! Kooky, colorful, whimsical.
And, yes, purple cauliflower is a real, unmodified type of cauliflower… the purple color comes from the antioxidants in it! (Mr. Boy’s teacher was perplexed by it too!)
Here’s the shot I shared on Instagram:
Pssst … here is last year’s Green Eggs and Ham Bento, AND if you want more grain-free lunch ideas, you can either browse through my bento gallery or you can look at this week’s menu-plan for all of our planned school lunches.
Time to share your lunch! What fun lunch boxes have you been packing for your family?
You can link to any kid-lunch/bento or family-friendly recipe on a blog post or via flickr photos — this linky is for any kind of healthy school lunch and kid-food, regardless if it is Bento-style or not. I want to celebrate our efforts to provide good and enjoyable school lunches for our families!
My only request is that you either add a link back to this post or include the Lunch Graphic (which links back) to your post so others can get here to view the linked lunches too!
Link up your school lunches and bentos! Please use a permalink for your post rather than linking your general blog/flickr account URL — this will help people go directly to your fabulous lunch!
