Day 360


Day 360 - Breakfast for lunch!!  D had a couple of cut out sandwiches this week so I had a stockpile of bread scraps.  That means baked french toast time!!  Bento bloggers often are asked what do you do with all the scraps?  Isn't making these cute lunches wasteful?  Well to be honest...NO!  Around here, cheese, meat and veggie scraps are eaten almost immediately and if they aren't they are typically added to pasta salad and used up that way.  Bread scraps either end up as "cinnamon fries" or baked french toast.  Simple, easy and D loves all those options!

Here are some links to recipes and ideas for using bento scraps!
