Year 2, Week 30: Captain America Bento Lunch. Today's lunch is for my son. He hasn't received one for awhile and he really wanted a Captain America lunch. I made my daughter a lunch as well, but it is under wraps for now. It is for an upcoming exciting event that I can't talk about yet, but you will hear about it soon! Anyway, both of my kids love superheroes and this one was actually really easy to do. I picked Captain America because he is one of my son's favorites.
It is made in an Easy Lunch Boxes container. Be sure to follow me on Twitter and Facebook so you can get all the updates about some exciting stuff coming soon. Have a wonderful Easter next weekend.
