Bento Picnic with a View of Boston

Yesterday a few of my friends and I went on a picnic at this park with a nice view of Boston. I packed picnic bentos for me and my fiance, and one of my friends didn't have a lunch so I made him a bento as well.
 Here is my bento for the picnic:
 I have yummy fruit as well as veggies and turkey to dip into the hummus...
  • Small Tomatoes
  • Baby Carrots
  • Celery Sticks
  • Turkey Breast
  • Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
  • Watermelon
  • Grapes
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberry
 And this is the side/snack bento:
  • 100 Calorie Gluten Free Pretzels
  • Gluten Free S'mores Cookies
  • Mini Carrot Cake Larabar
  • Yogurt Covered Raisins
This is my Fiance's Bento (she wanted a simple one):

  • Cucumber Sandwich (Whole Wheat Bread, Light Cream Cheese, Sliced Cucumber)
  • Light Laughing Cow Swiss Cheese Wedge (She packed pretzels to eat it with)
  • Homemade GF Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars (I made them from This Recipe)
And the only fruit she wanted to bring was Watermelon. I packed it in my Skull Bento Box with a few Bone Picks.
 This is the bento I made for my friend to bring since he didn't have a lunch:
  • PBJ (Whole Wheat Bread, Natural Peanut Butter, Blackberry All Fruit Spread)
  • Watermelon
  • Grapes
  • Strawberry
YUM! I love Picnics.
That container to on the left has the rest of the Homemade Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars. And the food at the top of the picture is what my other friend brought.
 Our Beautiful View. It was a little hazy, so the view of Boston wasn't as clear as it could have been.
You should see it at night. Except when there is a game at Fenway, Then the lights from the stadium overpower the lights from the buildings.


  1. Heeheeheehee! Was so much fun! And love your little bentos; so pretty! I loved the little tomatoes in the piggy ears. :-P And love Skyline Park! <3!!! Hopefully next time we can do kites. ^_^

    1. Yeah, It was hardly windy enough to get a kite in the air. The only reason the people next to us could get their kites to stay up for a little while was because they were made of super lightweight plastic. Our kites would have stayed on the ground. lol

  2. Where did you get the cute bone picks?

    1. I love those picks. It is part of a pack of 12 picks that my friend gave me. Here is a link with a picture and where you can find them.
