Finding craft time

So how do some people do it? How do they seem to handle all life has to offer and still find time to do the things that they want for themself? This is the great age old question. I like many others try not to set myself up in this question but, seriously I seem […]

All Things For Sale – Bento Supplies

I happened upon a cute web site called  http://www.allthingsforsale.com/ . The bento crazy person in me spent alot of time going through all the little items and wishing how I could win the lotto and buy them all. I decided I would just purchase a few items and see how I liked this online company. How […]

Bento Body Parts Lunch

lab

Last Halloween I made a similar bento and kiddo and her school friends loved the gross idea. Even though the bento itself was not too gross it was just the reading of what I thought the items were out loud made it seem even more creepy than it actually was. For this Bento body parts […]

Twist on Tuna

Well with one kiddo down sick and me not wanting to to cook, nothing defrosted for dinner, I find myself looking at the cabinet of canned food to quick fix a meal.  Tuna salad is always my standby either sammis or made into cakes and even sushi! Sushi it is, I love tuna this way […]

If you eat plenty of carrots you will have excellent vision. Though I was not a fan when I was young,  eating a mushy cooked carrot turned me colors just to keep it down. I would weigh the consequences of wearing glasses or eating cooked carrots heavily in my mind and if given the chance […]

Cute Elephant Bento

Cute Elephant Bento was the decision for today’s bento because my kiddo and I have this “thing” for elephants.  Dumbo is the main reason we started to love them.  The way that Dumbo’s Momma Jumbo puts her trunk around little Dumbo and swings him. Ever since she was a baby I used to hum the […]

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 […]

How To Take Care Of Your Pumpkin

These ancient customs believed that the spirits of the dead left their graves on All Hallows’ Eve and would want to come back to their old home. The fearful village people did […]
