My daughter had a doctor's appointment this morning about 11 am.  She woke up at 9:30 am and had breakfast, so I knew she wouldn't be starving during the appointment.  I made her a snack bento anyway, because she was missing lunch time at daycare.

She has some pepperoni, cucumber slices, a strawberry, some grapes and "cantaloaf".  (That would be cantaloupe).  She didn't want a sandwich or a wrap - just pepperoni.  She was so happy with her bento that she wanted to take a picture.

This is her shy smile :-) Looks exactly like me at that age.

For myself I packed a lunch that's just almost carb free.  I made a decision to get back on Atkins religiously, so that's what I did.

I have a salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onions, cheese, banana peppers and pepperoni.  I have ranch dressing on the side.

I also have some grapes, cantaloupe, a strawberry and some tuna salad I made last night.  It has boiled egg whites, tuna, mayo and green onion.  I also threw in some salt and pepper.

When I got to work, one of the girls had made stuffed bell peppers and brought me one.  It's basically meatloaf inside a green bell pepper.  I love those things!  I didn't eat the mashed potatoes she brought, though.
