Second bento of the year

I'm enjoying getting back into lunch making for the kidlets. I know they enjoy it, so it's sort of my act of love for them - a touch of mom during the day! These bentos have mini corn dogs, tortilla roll ups, grapes, Goldfish crackers, dried blueberies, a skewer of tomatoes, cheese, a pickle, and an olive, and a chocolate.

Back to Bento Time!!!

Beth Ann and Ray both start school tomorrow, so it's time to get the bentos out! We're eating a normal vegetarian diet for the time being, so the next few bentos won't necessarily be either gluten of dairy free. I just love the bentos so much, that I'm going to post about them anyway!!!

In the bottom tier, I packed mandarin oranges. There is fruit leather in the lid. For the main part, I put Flat Earth Chips in the cup, a Babybel cheese, veggie meat rolled up with the animal picks, a skewer of grapes, a skewer of cheese, cherry tomatoes, and a pickle and a little chocolate.

Swing Thai

Well, we're going through all the gluten/dairy testing now, and I think it's going to be a couple of months ordeal. Gah. My oldest daughter and I went out to dinner this evening at Swing Thai, and I was pleased to see that they have their gluten-free dishes marked, and there were quite a few of them. They also have their vegan dishes marked. How cool is that? I didn't take my camera, but I'm going to go back, take pictures, and do a proper review. For now, let me just say that their food is good, and there are plenty of gluten free/vegan options.
