  2. This is utterly brilliant! And it looks pretty darn adorable too. I adore picnics and plan to have loads this Summer so I’ll definitely try this.

    I love Mason jars…what a handy thing to have!

  4. Fantastic. A cute idea to give a couple to offer them a break for the afternoon! Show up with these and a blanket, offer to watch the bambino, and send them on their way. Thanks for sharing!

  5. love this! we’ve been doing this at our house for the past few years. it’s a great spill-proof way to bento. i recommend all wide-mouth jars(like the ones pictured), which come in a smaller, shorter size and a larger size, for easy eating and cleaning.

  13. It looks great, not sure about the practical side…

    Am i supposed to eat past first, then cheese? What if i want to stick potato on a fork in the first place? Ok, i could try that! I’m afraid all that salad would be on my knees.

    You think i’m wrong?
    Well enjoy them. i stick to eating on a plate!

  14. Just spotted. Aw, thank you for my mason jar meal feature! A delight to see, especially as it’s one of my few non-sweet posts (so new terrain). To answer some of the above…. I cover all that in the post, including the importance to leave room at the top for mess-free shakin’!

  15. Thank you so much Meaghan! I love this idea so SO much!

  21. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours mason jar meals | { wit + delight }. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
