Organization Time

Now that the Christmas season has come to a close and the kiddos will be starting back to school tomarrow, I decided that I would gear up for those bento lunches and early morning breakafasts (and of course my daily posts ). I had to go through all the leftover snacks and treats that were […]

Hello Kitty Cake

My Kiddo turned 9 this week (sniff sniff, wipe tear). She is not your average little girl. I love that about her. She is so NOT a princess type and the only “Barbie” she likes are those weird Monster High dolls. She seriously said when she first saw them “now that’s my kinda doll”!  She […]

Cute Panda Bento

 So today is a simple and quick bento. The Cute Panda Bento was put together because I have been getting leftovers sent home. I hate food waste so my bentos will get on the smaller side until kiddo shows signs of I need more food. Does not mean cuteness has to stop since the package […]

Lady Bugs & Butterflies Bento

Hello Kitty Bento Lunch

So with no inspiration this morning I went to Hello Kitty to rescue my bento for kiddo’s lunch. Making “girly” food is so easy with Hello Kitty, because all you need is her cute face and a few flowers and picks. That makes it quick and easy. Today’s Hello Kitty Bento Lunch started with the […]

Cute Busy Bee Bento

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 […]
