Individual veggie trays for travel – Bento box style!
Making bento boxes really sparked a whole new trend in the house for a while.
Our entire view on food shifted to keeping in mind what would work well to put in the lunches the next day. Even the dog got compartmentalized food a few times. And here, my mom skipped trying to travel with a full awkward veggie tray by doing several individually packed veggie bags.
The same could be done with plastic bowls as the larger holder, of course, and would be good for long car rides with the kids, picnics, etc. Actually, those Glad salad bowls that come with a little pop-out salad dressing bowl would work perfect for them, too, but I didn’t see those until quite a while after Mom did these. Why buy specialized bowls when you can work with what you already have anyway? These are much cuter.
