I'll give the end of this post away now, so you don't miss it... this lunch is part of a Happy Birthday Sherlock Holmes blog hop! No sneaking a peek at the next post now, read mine first! The link to the next blog is at the end :)
Sailor Boy's EasyLunchbox contains a "Mystery Meatball" Bento:
- Mystery meatballs on rice, with teriyaki glaze
- Sharp white cheddar characters
- Fresh pineapple chunks with a heart pick
- & a Peanut Toffee Buzz Clif Bar
How good are your bento detective skills?
There's a reason behind what's in each section of this lunch. Think you can solve the mystery meanings? Take a look, then read on to see if you're right :)
So what's the mystery with the meatballs?
No, it's not mystery meat - they're just regular ground beef. But they're stuffed meatballs - the mystery is what's inside each one! It could be chopped bell peppers, a grape tomato, pineapple & ginger, or mozzarella cheese! And the cheese characters? Sherlock's address is 221B Baker Street.
Nothing! But what's a mystery lunch without a nod to another couple of my favourite detectives, Shawn & Gus of Psych? My fellow Psych-os will get it :)
And of course, you know I always put a heart in my Sailor Boy's lunch ♥
When my friend Karen of What's In Our Lunch Bags? suggested we make bentos for Sherlock Holmes' birthday, my first thought was,
"So, a bento made of coffee & tobacco then?"
Heh. Caffeine & nicotine was pretty much what Sherlock existed on!
This particular Clif bar is caffeinated, so I think Sherlock would approve :)

Lastly, I packed a note from my Lunchbox Love For Loved Ones collection. There's no mystery behind why I chose this one, it's just a fact :) And one of the things I'm going to miss the most when he deploys next week :(
I'd like to thank the folks of Say Please! not only for their gift of these Lunchbox Love notes to slip into my husband's lunches when he's home & care packages when he's deployed, but also for helping to make military life a bit sweeter for all service members & their families via Treats 4 Our Troops ♥ Visit their website www.treats4ourtroops.org/ or facebook page to learn more :)
