Toddler lunch with octodogs

Toddler lunch with octodogs


Toddler lunch with octodogs お弁当

* cut-up hiyashi chuuka (Japanese pasta salad: tomatoes, egg, cucumber, and salami slices with cold pasta and soy sauce-based salad dressing)
* fresh pineapple (still using that up!)
* octopus-cut hot dogs on a bed of cucumber slices
* container of ketchup for hot dogs, container of yogurt/herb dip for cucumber
* drink container with apple, berry and cherry juice cut with water

I cut the tops of the octodogs because my toddler chokes on full-width hotdogs. Also substituted salami for the traditional sliced ham in the hiyashi chuuka. In my new Lock & Lock bento set,

Lock & Lock bento set: exploded

An exploded view of the little Lock & Lock bento set — the Korean tupperware by Hanacobi Co. You can see that the bottom right container is divided, while the bottom left container is not. The bottom two containers are 350ml each (12 oz), with a 300ml drink container/cup on top. Microwave/dishwasher/freezer- safe, and water/air-tight.

The containers all stack and fit into their own little fitted carrying case with zipper. :-)

  1. Hiya, I know it’s a weird/random post to comment on, but I bought the orange version of this and was just looking at it to figure out if it’s freezer-safe. You say here it’s freezer safe (though mine doesn’t say so on the containers/stickers?) but my real question is, have you ever frozen any liquids in the drink container? I seem to remember reading on your site - maybe in a comment- something about that, and I was wondering if it was safe to do so, to keep the entire lunch cold. I mean, it’s coming up on winter where I am, so it’ll be a moot point soon enough, but for now I’m curious… thanks :)
