Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great day today. Today I did our first Valentine bento of the month. I love Valentines Day. The kids all get a box of chocolate from mommy and daddy. I usually bake the hubby a cake of his choice and he always gets me a little something. Love is always in the air in February! So without further ado here is our lunch inspired from love!
This is lunch for the middle girl. She has lunch packed in our Easy Lunchboxes. She has pepperoni heart roll ups. Carrot medallions and grapes. She also has apple newton cookies and pretzel squares.

This is lunch for the boy. He has pepperoni roll ups, grapes and a orange. Also he has apple Newton cookies and pretzel squares.
I know you are wondering how I made the cute heart roll ups. So here are the instructions.
I took a extra large flour tortilla and cut it in half. Set one piece to the side. Place the flour tortilla the cut side at the top. Take four sandwich size slices of pepperoni and place all the way across the tortilla. Fold the pepperoni slices in just a bit to make them line up with the cut side of the tortilla (so they fit together like two pieces of paper). Next fold the rounded bottom of the tortilla up to the middle of the pepperoni. Now roll one side over tightly until you reach the middle. Roll the other side tightly to meet the other rolled part. Hold tightly and cut into 3 to 4 thick pieces. Now push the bottom in to form a heart shape. You can either secure with a toothpick or food pick. And there you have it. Heart shaped pepperoni roll ups! You can also put a thin layer of whatever condiments your children like. Just remember not to much.
