Preparation Notes

Either use leftovers or prepare a fresh batch of pecan and veggie rice pilaf. Put your cooled rice pilaf into your extra large container.

Slice and roast a butternut squash. Let squash cool and then cut into a large star. Place your star on top of the rice pilaf.

Slice cheddar cheese and cut into small stars and place on the rice pilaf leading up to the butternut squash star.

Cut beets into chunks, sprinkle with olive oil, coarse salt and pepper before roasting. Once cool, sprinkle with parsley and use to fill up your medium lidded container.

Cut up a ripe persimmon for your medium unlidded container.

Put a chocolate treat into one of your bento dividers and put it into your extra large container for a special treat.
