My Three Kid Circus

This may be as crazy as it gets… but we're lovin' it!

Leaving Good Enough Alone September 2, 2010

If you’re new to this Bento box thing like me, sometimes it just gets overwhelming. Its fun, its not that hard, but sometimes, I just don’t have it in me. Like tonight. We had an errand to run, gymnastics and then Back to School Night to meet the teachers. We’d be home a little after 7:00, but since we were making a first impression on the teachers, I wanted my kids’ bellies to be full to help increase the chances of good behavior.  And besides, I had a pot roast that had to go into the crockpot, today.

How do you make pot roast look cute?  Especially when there’s only about 5 minutes between the time its scheduled to be done and the time you need to walk out the door?

Enter the handy stainless steel thermos.  Throw in a handful of canned green beans.  Toss several chunks of very hot pot roast over it, and we’re done.  Not pretty, but exactly what I needed to get the job done.  I added a mandarin orange, and my kids were happy as clams.

So there you go….permission granted to not be cute.  Sometimes looks just really don’t matter.
