If we happen to have fresh bread, salad and sandwich filling-type items in the fridge, I like to make sandwiches for our work lunches as I know Jac loves sandwiches. On this occasion, we had both wholemeal and multigrain bread*, so I used both breads. I poked animal picks into the sandwiches to help keep them together.
The sandwiches I made were (in the photo below, from left to right):
- hard-boiled egg mashed with chopped spring onion, mayo and french mustard, and lettuce
- seasoned roast pork, chutney, mayo and cucumber
- honey ham, lettuce, mayo, wholegrain mustard.
And across the top:
- roast turkey breast, avocado, raspberry jam and lettuce.
This is a close-up of roast turkey breast, avocado, raspberry jam and lettuce sandwich. I knew this one would be Jac’s favourite out of the lot.
So here’s the note I put into Jac’s Sandwich Keeper. I made the stars on the note multi-coloured to celebrate the return of the sandwich bento (and the little sandwich is all “yay!”) – it felt like it had been a long time since I made Jac sandwiches for lunch.
About the bento gear
- The sandwich boxes used are Sandwich Keepers, made by Tupperware. We bought ours years ago – Tupperware makes them in different colours now.
- The panda food pick is from a set of 10 Animal Friends Picks, from JBox.
*I prefer multigrain, Jac prefers wholemeal. Most times she’ll happily eat multigrain, but sometimes we’ll buy two loaves of bread – wholemeal for her and multigrain for me. I actually prefer white bread most of all, but we all know it’s not good for you, so I eat multigrain most of the time, and wholemeal sometimes.
