I cooked some chicken nuggets and placed them into a silicon cup and did the same with the waffles. I noticed all the main food was very bland looking. So to add some color I added some raspberries and a cute chicken to the top of the nuggets and to the waffles I put a little shooting rainbow star. Next to the waffles I added some green beans to … More
This week has not only been spring break but also me prepping to move, because we are moving at the end of April I have been very busy checking out places I want to move and of course packing. I know I have some time but being ready instead of the last minute is SOO much better.
We are doing a staycation and it is going well along with fitting in the boxing of … More
Halloween Spooky fun. My kiddos friends loved her Pumpkin Bento I made yesterday so I stepped it up just a little today.
I have at the bottom GF Alfredo pasts with dried nori flakes (kinda looks like bats or cloudy sky) cheese moon, cat and pumpkin. Cats eyes were black sesame seeds, the shape worked great and nori for pumpkin face. Under cat is a bacon fence and above is a spider web carved into her apple. Under the pumpkin is her veg mix with a food separator leaf for decoration.
I made some GF Pumpkin cake for her … More
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
My kiddo had her BFF come over for a birthday party we gave her and since the weather is still nice she wanted a camp over with her and sleep in the tent in our woods
So a Camp theme party it was. We had a lot of fun cause I had them decorate back packs with fabric paint and then they did a hunt for fun camping toy items I placed all over the wood and garden.
We roasted hot dogs and made s’mores over a small fire (in a tiny bar B - Q). We topped it off … More
I happened upon a cute web site called http://www.allthingsforsale.com/ . The bento crazy person in me spent alot of time going through all the little items and wishing how I could win the lotto and buy them all.
I decided I would just purchase a few items and see how I liked this online company. How long shipping would take them and shipping costs. Well shipping is a flate rate of $6 anywhere in the US. That is cool So it does not matter how much you buy it will just be $6. They also have incentives for spending more … More
I allways wondered how people were making eggs and cutting them into shapes or using them to wrap other food into. the possibilites are boundless of the types of bento you can create! So after several attempts on my own I searched out the perfect recipe so my bentos can even get more complex for me in the morning, LOL!
I found basic recipe in one of my new books, but after looking on the web alot of people strain the beaten egg, that way you dont get the white patches in the egg like I did. Darn that is … More
Spring keeps trying to show up here in the Forest, but alas we are in Colorado and that will tell ya that it isn’t happening until Mother’s Day passes. Yes we can have snow one day and be sunny summer day the next until then. I have started my seeds indoors first week of April and thinking of Spring and cannot wait for my garden. So Cute Busy Bee Bento idea popped into my mind.
I had some leftover sticky rice from the other day and didn’t want it to go to waste so I used a rice mold, added … More
The way things are now a days it is so hard to find customer service in any company. You are usually just one person insignificant in a sea of people, a number or something. Companies usually do not have heart. They are in it for the almighty dollar and not caring how they get it or if you are happy cause if your not someone else out there will take it so who cares. This is our sad reality of the capitalism. Too bad you would think that if a company really cared that people would flock to them for … More
Easter always one of my personal favorite holidays. I have very fond memories of getting all dressed up and going to my Grandma’s house in Chicago suburb and filling the Easter Basket with treats and Polish food that we would eat for Breakfast.
Then we would go to the Church and have the baskets blessed by the Catholic Priest. I could not wait to get back home as we could not eat anything until after mass. The blessed basket with polish sausage, colored eggs, horseradish and polish breads and treats would smell so good as I sat there, kneeling waiting … More
