Fun Food Bento 2

My kiddo loves anything meat and cheese. She struggles with the desire to be a vegetarian but this past few weeks she is all meat all the time.  She LOVES sandwiches.  I admit to my love of all things bread so I must have somehow passed on that gene ;P So she also loves anime, […]

Stay-cation The At Home Vacation

So what are you doing for SPRING BREAK?  If funding ,gas prices or other things prevent you from a real vacation why not do a STAY-cation?  This week has not only been spring break but also me prepping to move,  because we are moving at the end of April I have been very busy checking […]

Winter Kitty Bento

Now that turkey day has passed and kiddo is back in school (she had the week off) its back to bento here! Kiddo was hoping and praying for a snow day today. But, her wish did not come true. Just really cold and light smattering of snow. This is what inspired my Winter Kitty Bento. […]

GF Mini Pot Pie

Spring here is cold one day and warm the next as you know from my previous posts. Today was rainy and cold (thank goodness it didn’t turn to snow) and it is days like these where I want to make some comfort food. I wanted something warm and yummy to bake up and one of […]

Cute Veggie Pasta Bento

Cute Veggie Pasta bento is thanks to last nights dinner’s leftovers. My kiddo loves pasta, poor baby has Momma’s carb addiction, LOL.  Bumping up the veggie content is easy when you use cutters like I did for the carrots. Baby corn cut in slices makes for cute flowers ( I have even used as snowflakes […]

I went to Cost Plus and bought these cute Day of the Dead cookie cutters, so cute I had to get them! I was really excited at how cute the bento would be. This is perfect because me and kiddo went to the Coffin Races here and we had our faces painted like Day of […]

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 […]

Birthday Breakfast

For my kiddo turning double digits (sniff sniff) I am making sure her morning is fun with a Birthday Breakfast. I used some of my bento gear to help decorate the special Birthday Breakfast and she loved it. This Birthday Breakfast was made with pancakes and yes food coloring. You could use natural dyes if […]
