Road Food Bento!

Road Trip Today! So no lunch bento but instead: snack bento filled with delights designed to make the distance between home and Madison one long munch.

When I hit the highway I revert to age 4: Are we there yet? I have to go to the bathroom! What is there to eat?

At least the last one is now taken care of. Jan and I each have a snacky bento to take on the road to Second Son's CD launch concert. His band is called Lords of the Trident and they've been working for 3 1/2 years on the songs that make up this CD. So Jan and I have to try to stay awake & functional in a Madison bar until 1 a.m. Red Bull you are my sweetheart tonite.

We have two identical bentos with:

Top tier: Peanut butter crackers (may we not die), home-made chocolate-dippped chocolate grahams, sugar snap peas, caramel apple pop, chocolate gold coin.

Bottom bunk: carrots, cherry tomatos and Babybel cheese, M&M's and a Jolly jelly.

I'm hungry! He's looking at me!! Quit it! MOM!! (getting into the mood here)


  1. what pretty new little bentos! I'd love to take one on a roadtrip. I'm going to go bento shopping now as am inspired.

  2. AWESOME!!! As you know - I love taking bentos on road trips too! Your snacks look awesome and healthy! You guys have fun tonight at the concert and be sure to add a splash of vodka to those red bulls! :P


  3. Looks so psycodelic, is that how it's spelled?
    Love it.

  4. You are a woman after my own heart!

    I am now on a BEnto Quest!

  5. Perfect road food! Your style is the best. Sister is heading over to Japan, so maybe I'll order a few boxes for my passion of snacking through the desert.
