Piggy Bun Bento

My kiddo loves those steamed BBQ Pork buns from our Asian Market. I love them because in a pinch they cook up in 10 min (steamer) and in a thermos they stay nice, soft and warm.  The only problem is it is not easy to make cute food in a thermos. So basically I just decorated the bun with a little piggy face made up of meat for nose and ears, then some nori for eyes.  My thermos has a top container that is small but you can cram some goodies into. I put a piggy carved apple, some string beans, yellow cauliflower and some carrot flowers. 



Quick and easy, yea I probibly could have shoved a bunch more stuff down with the bun but this will be pleanty of food fo my kiddo.  I need to remember what my photo teacher once told me his KISS method,  K_I_S_S = Keep It Simple Stupid. Some good words to live by there….




MommaSays: Easy way to dress up any lunch is to put a smiling face, done with a few additions of meat and cheese. When your kiddo sees it they will be smiling back at you.

      Thanks so much. My kiddo was happy and that is what mattered the most. Simple or elaborate I think she just likes it as long as something cute it in her lunch.
