Gotta love the calzone for the ease and fun factor, not to mention the fact that it's a no-brainer to pack. Especially when you have the Sistema compartmentalized bento box. I've come to think of this box as my calzone box since that is what I've been packing in the large open section; you can also fit a standard sandwich or even a burger. It's not practical for messy foods since the two halves come together and become inverted after closure, but it works quite nicely for breads. Can you see the bear? I added some facial details with extra dough, a party hat for fun, and filled out the other side with grapes, strawberry, broccoli, tomatoes, and cara cara oranges.
I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 9yo (4th grader) son & my 5yo kindergartener girl every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
