Pokemon Bento

This is the second bento for the school year. She wanted onigiri (sticky rice ball-check out my easy recipe). She wanted pokeball onigiri and Pikachu, easy enough since I have the rice molds for those. To make the colored rice if you check my previous recipe, I used little cups to separate the colored rice […]

Christmas Stocking Bento

 The temp outside this morning read -2 when I woke up. Yes Winter is in full gear now. Funny how in a week it can get so extreme, like they say Welcome to Colorado… So the chill in the air and Chritmas around the corner I make another holiday bento. The Christmas Stocking Bento is […]

One thing me and kiddo like to do is watch fun family movies and Halloween family movies is just perfect now (though we do watch all year long too). My hubby is a horror movie buff but I don’t care for slasher films. So what happens is he winds up watching the scary ones with […]

Santa Bear Bento

Well with me being sick and kiddos having Thanksgiving break I did not make any bentos. Funny though when I was making my kiddo her bento this morning she walked in to see me at work and said “YEA, Bento”.  That is why I do what I do.  Being sick sorta zapped my brain but […]

Hello Kitty Bento
