Paige is going on a field trip today so I packed her lunch in a disposable container. This one happens to be a cupcake box by Wilton, which is the perfect size for a bento. Assembled it measures 3 X 4.5 X 4.5 and is a little deeper than a traditional bento box, which makes it easy to stand two standard sized musubis side by side and still have lots of room to fill it with chicken katsu bites, mini veggie mandoo, grapes, and a little container of ketchup. The boxes come in different sizes and this particular one comes in a set of three for $4.50 at the Ward Warehouse Executive Chef.
So here’s something random and weird for you all. Last night we met up with my brother in-law for dinner at Macaroni grill, which was great by the way. When we got back home and headed on in to our house, a small tree frog decided to commit suicide by jumping in between my foot and slipper as I was in mid stride. I totally flattened him and he was stuck to the bottom of my foot. I can’t tell you how gross it was and how many times I washed my foot and slipper off, not to mention sanitize it with antibacterial wipes. What’s the chances of that happening?
