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 […]

Hello Kitty Witch Bento

HelloKittyWitchSmall

Today is Halloween! I wanted to make something cute for kiddos lunch and nothing is cuter than Hello kitty. I wanted her to be colorful and full of Halloween fun.   I started with sticky rice of course using Annie Chun’s minute sticky rice. I put the rice into a mold (Pikachu) then after I […]

Chicken Or The Egg Bento

I had to use these little eggs that I bought a bit ago so that is why I quickly put this Chicken or the egg bento together. I love asking my kiddo “which came first”? I made the little chicks out of quail eggs from the Asian market. My kiddo LOVES them because she can […]

With the holidays and fall season here the stores have so many owls in them!  I LOVE owls I want to buy them all up. With owls on my brain I thought I would make today’s cute bento with a owl theme. My cute Night owl bento was made with Annie Chuns Minute rice, my […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cute Panda Bento Lunch

With dreaming of all things Asian lately and my daughters delight in thinking of how we will travel when she is older to the different cultures of Japan and China I made this cute panda bento lunch for her today.  Kiddo and I ate at a new Chinese restaurant and while she was having her […]

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 […]
