I decided to post this cute airplane bento we took onto the plane since I am still not quite adjusted to the timezone and still feeling exhausted. I actually am finally feeling better today but I'm not quite sure why it is taking me so long to adjust?! Who knows.. maybe I need a vacation from my vacation to figure this out ;)
I made this airplane bento the night before we left to Costa Rica but my pictures came out really dark so I decided to take a picture of the bento at the airport. That is classic airport rug beneath the lunch :) I made this for Eliana just in case she got hungry on the way down because our flights did not give any free snacks or meals. I wasn't about to pay for any snacks or meals on the plane, and they may not have been able to ensure that they were peanut-free and nut-free. Plus this was Eliana's first plane ride ever, so I had to bring her a cute snack!! Bringing this airplane bento worked out perfectly :)
I made two cute little plane sandwiches with a sandwich stamper (because we were taking two planes to Costa Rica). Inside each plane sandwich is Eliana's favorite I M Healthy Creamy Soynut Butter With Honey
with extra honey drizzled in the sandwich (my girl loves honey).
The marshmallow was decorated using edible markers to make the Costa Rica Flag.
Below the two planes is a cereal bar with fruit leather on top of it. I used my cutters to cut out the word avión, which means plane in Spanish.
In the upper right are some peas (frozen when I packed them, defrosted by the morning) and in the bottom right is watermelon and blueberries with an airplane pick.
This was a simple, easy and quick lunch to make and Eliana loved it. I always love when that happens :) She also did an amazing job for her first time on a plane, and she flew like a champ! I think she flew better than David and me ;)
