It's time to celebrate! St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us.
Let's party with something traditional like
Today I have 3 bentos. Two for my twin girls and one for the Proud Irish Husband of Food.
OK, had I planned this ahead of time, those Shamrock sandwiches would be Corned Beef, but alas... they are Turkey and Cheese. The shamrock cuts left not enough left over as to be impossible to get a second shamrock out of the sandwich, but just enough to inspire a Lunch for Daddy.
The last minute preparations led to the discovery of the most Irish of Snack Foods - Veggie Straws! The green, white, and orange sticks make a lovely Irish Flag.
Blueberries? They are healthy, nutritious and not entirely absent in Ireland. The girls would have gotten raw carrots, like their Dad, but their school doesn't allow them.
If anyone wants to share some bento, please post a link in the comments.
