Mini-sandwich nibbles

Mini-sandwich nibbles


So this morning I had fun with rye cocktail bread — about 2 inches across and very thin. For some reason this lunch is making me very happy! Packed in my large 940ml Dear Label box.

Mini-sandwich bento for adult お弁当

* Six mini-sandwiches, stacked two high. Fillings were: 1) salami, havarti, lettuce and cognac/pepper mustard, 2) cream cheese, green onions and pepper, 3) Marmite and cheese, and 4) Nutella and peanut butter.
* Half a Fuji apple, cut side dipped in lemon juice
* Blueberries
* Leftover Peruvian purple potato salad
* Grape tomatoes
* Hard-boiled egg, shaped with a mold, dyed light blue

I made a smaller version for my son, and packed it in a new snack container.

Two mini-sandwiches: one is cream cheese, the other is havarti (can you tell he likes cheese?). More grape tomatoes.

Small 260ml side dish bento boxes (“Comment vas-tu?”). With the very Canadian French sub-title of “il fait un temps magnifique, n’est-ce pas?” No metal in the hinges!

  1. I love the mini sandwiches, those are awesome!

  3. Thanks! I thought of it as maximum fun for minimum effort (no cookie cutters required), plus you get a variety of fillings in the same space.

  4. Thanks for the “friended” thing — because of your comment, I just figured out what that means (and realized I’ve got other “friends”)!!! Yeah, I’m new to the whole blog thing…
