Girly Monkey Bento

I made this bento because on my daughters new towel it has a cute girly monkey on it and I call my kiddo “my monkey”.  Well my monkey got sick on Monday so bento could not be given and it was stored in the fridge. Well after two days now, I will show my still sick kiddo her bento if she can eat the rice, dont think it will be a good idea to eat the cute meat and non dairy cheese monkey cause she is still sick and will be more on blander diet, so sadly she will be … More

Monkey Business Bento

I love monkeys, because that is one of the nicknames I call my kiddo.  When we are being all cuddly I wisper I love my monkey or when she is all wired I call her my silly monkey, you get the picture.

So with my monkey in need of a bento for lunch I made her Monkey Business Bento. The sammi with monkey face is from a toast press I think at target? I outlined some of it with food markers. Behind the sammi is some leaf baran with some strawberries (cant see), a green monkey thing we got from … More

More Kids Bento!!

Hello my name is Julie and I am bento addict.

OK I officially have become an addict.  The definition of addiction is –noun the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming. There you have it.  Bento is habit forming. I get up early usually to to it before everyone wakes up. Sometimes I even do it before bed, so it is ready the next day. I am constantly trying to find info on the Internet about it. I cannot go into a store without thinking about it. I could … More

Cute Animal Bento

 

With everything going on here I had bento guilt and made sure kiddo got her bento. While I was making it she saw it and said Oh how cute and then put more picks. So with here in mind it has many animal picks today and that is so OK she made it her own now.  I wonder if she will get the bento bug and then start making her own bentos?  Who knows but it would be fun to include her plus all that matters is that she likes the bentos, so if kiddo wants alot of picks … More

Cute Sammi Bento

Cute Sammi Bento today, I have been craving peanut butter and jelly sammi so much cause of my dieting, not sure why, maybe just because I am not eating bread..

Well to at least lick peanut butter off the spoon, I made these PB & J sammis (GF Bread). I decorated the top with some cute flower sprinkles, then added a cherry tomato, beef roll into a rose with pea pod leaf, cup of berries with a heart pick, another meat flower, turkey cheese and tomato roll, pea pod, slivers of carrot.

It is pretty and colorful so my kiddo … More

New Year Resolution, Can You Keep It?

Well with the New Year starting we all have many good intentions of what we would like to do in order to make the upcoming year better. Just about everyone makes a resolution to be more healthy. Like to loose weight or stop smoking or to eat more healthy,  But as we all know we usually never keep these resolutions. by making these are we just setting ourselves up for failure? Like the old saying says the road is paved with good intentions, right? Research says that it is good to make these resolutions and that even though a majority … More

Cute Animal Bento

Were back in the saddle at least for a few days. Making Bentos for today and tomorrow only this week.  For today I made Cute Animal Bento. Using Cute Z Cute Cutter which makes lunches so easy and quick, YEA! Gotta love when lunch comes together quick. I made kiddo two sammis today because after school she has been hungry lately. Guessing a growth spurt is on its way.

Todays Cute Animal Bento has two PB & J sammis, silicon cup with purple grapes, mini apple (so tiny and cute picked at Happy Apple farm) a mini cup with fruit … More

Winter Kitty Bento

WinterKittySmall

Now that turkey day has passed and kiddo is back in school (she had the week off) its back to bento here!
Kiddo was hoping and praying for a snow day today. But, her wish did not come true. Just really cold and light smattering of snow. This is what inspired my Winter Kitty Bento.

Today is unlike my usual bentos as it is chocked full of gluten products! I know my bentos are usually gluten free but her new allergist wants her to eat gluten today. To test her intolerance. I don’t want to but OK…Hoping all goes well … More
