Chicken & Waffles Bento

My kiddo loves waffles and who doesn’t love breakfast items at lunch or even dinner for the matter. So that made me think of chicken and waffles for the bento today! I cooked some chicken nuggets and placed them into a silicon cup and did the same with the waffles. I noticed all the main […]

Bunny Bento Stash

My back still out I am once again using my bento freezer stash. Therapy is helping me but I am still in allot of  pain. BUT THE BENTOS WONT MAKE THEMSELVES… At least it can be easier with my stash. Frozen taquitos cooked and cooled, mini grapes, strawberries, baby carrots, GF mini cookies and my […]

Simply Sweet Bento

I got up a little late and basically threw this one together, not bad for quick bento. I quickly baked up some Simply Smart chicken chunks (Perdue brand sells GF too!) I had them from the night before and my kiddo said to me “Mom, these nuggets are real chicken and  YUMMY” so I guess […]

Welcome Spring Bento

Welcome Spring! Yesterday was the first day of Spring! Colorado is definitely showing signs of it too, all last week was WARM! This week was cooler but by Friday we will be not wearing coats again! So to honor the nice weather I made Welcome Spring Bento. In this bento I was able to use […]

World Animal Day – Tiger Bento

I made a tiger today, one of my kiddos favorite animals. My kiddo is not the Barbie girl type she is all about animals, always has been. So this bento is sure to please her WILD side. One thing I was particularly excited about was I went to Whole Foods and they had tri-colored carrots! […]

Zombie Bento Lunch

hal2

This had to be the easiest lunch I have made to date.  So simple but yet so wonderfully creepy. This is raman noodles which my kiddo LOVES. I know it is not GF but once in a blue moon I let her get a treat and though she has an intolerance to gluten I am […]

Hello Kitty Breakfast Bento

Hello Kitty Breakfast Bento for my kiddo!  We both love Hello Kitty and who doesn’t like breakfast? So a  Cute Hello Kitty Bento is the best of both worlds, plus I put as much pink as I could this morning considering we are moving and I have nothing out. Hello Kitty herself is filled with […]

Halloween Bento 2 (Freaky Food)

 this is a repost as I am not making a bento today but this was a fun one from last year. This time I decided to do a little test. I did not cute up her food too much. I did make a few things but the rest I am letting her imagination take over […]

Rainbow Egg Salad Bento

My kiddos love eggs and I saw a long time ago I think on Family Fun Magazine (not sure but I think) on an egg salad sandwich that used colored eggs.  So with this in the archive of this in my brain and  a dozen eggs I made previously I thought I would give it […]

Santa Bento

Christmas bentos on underway and today I have the BIG GUY center stage. My kiddo wrote her letter to Santa and put it under the tree ( I think I need to help with final draft to tame down the wants) so with him in mind I made today’s bento. I used some cookie presses […]
