Quick Bunny Bento #2

Here is another bento from her last week of school. Better late than never to post. I call it Quick Bunny Bento #2 ,Fist cause it is the second bunny bento and also cause I used the cutouts I had in the freezer! It makes it seriously quicker to make a fast bento if you dont […]

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 […]

Costumes More Than Just for Halloween

Well it is the time of year when you can choose to be scary, cute, daring or just silly. It is the one time when some kids actually get to really think “what do I want to be”.  For some kids like mine they have been planning on it all year! My daughter since last […]

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 […]

Frankenweenie Bento Lunch

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

What girl does not like Hello Kitty? My kiddo is not the Barbie doll playing type and loves Pokemon and Monster High dolls. Her love is also all things animals so that is why she loves Hello Kitty and Hello Kitty and bento totally goes together. You can buy all kinds of cute bento stuff […]

Fall Bento Lunch

Today is crisp Fall day and though I love living here in the forest we only have Pine trees so I don’t get the fall colors in the trees. Plus it is a short window here in Colorado to see the Aspen tree changes and I missed it this year :(   .  So I might […]

Homemade Cereal Breakfast Bar Gluten Free Too!

My little one is on a gluten free diet . We believe she is better gluten free, as we think she might have a “intolerance”. We think this due to the fact if she eats say spaghetti and meatballs (both containing gluten from the wheat) and garlic bread, she gets tummy pains. We notice this at […]

Easter and its different meanings

Easter always one of my personal favorite holidays. I have very fond memories of getting all dressed up and going to my Grandma’s house in Chicago suburb and filling the Easter Basket with treats and Polish food that we would eat for Breakfast.  Then we would go to the Church and have the baskets blessed […]
