Birthday Bento

BirthdayBento Saturday is kiddos birthday.  My baby turns 11 (insert huge SIGH).  She is getting a birthday bento early at school because today they are celebrating it. She gets it a bit early because for one  the real day is Saturday and secondly there is no school this Friday because of testing.

I know before you start to think oh there are marshmallows in this, not healthy!  I just want to say that I hardly ever put sweets in her bento lunches. This of course is a special Birthday Bento, so rules are no longer applying.  Anything in moderation is fine, lets not be a scrooge!

This  bento has one of kiddos favorite things and no it is not the marshmallows but I am sure that will be close LOL.  I made her a rice ball, well rice star.  I of course used my favorite sticky rice by Annie Chuns. I added a bit of colored water, just a few drops mixed it in to make the rice pink.  Once again I know food coloring is usually a no no but Birthday …   I added some pieces of cut veggies to decorate the top and then put a “11” on top made out of dairy free, gluten free cheese (   ). Behind the star is a red star pick, then some nice black berries in a cup, jewel carrots with a Happy Birthday pick and baran lea.  Strawberry cut into a heart, with a pick birthday hat on top, behind that a orange slice and another leaf baran.  A mini sausage with a flower cut into it and some cucumber “fries” tucked all around. Then of course the cute mini marshmallows that are shaped like a cupcake and ice cream.

I think this bento for sure has just about every color in the rainbow today. Kiddo will surly love it.
