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 […]

Snowman Bento

With snow still on the ground here in the forest I made today’s bento another snowman. I just love snowman and wishing the snow will be sticky enough here to make one. We will have to try today after school. I even have a “snowman kit” I got a few years ago! Back to my […]

Hello Kitty Witch Bento

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 […]

Love U Bento

I named this bento Love U Bento because not just the obvious love I have for my kiddo, yes the main reason. But, I love what bento making has done for my family. Bento has helped my kiddo feel good about her lunches and better about any diet restrictions I have for her. From GF […]

Yes another Halloween bento lunch for kiddo today. I am pumped up cause we decorated the house last night or should I say Hubby finally added the extensions cords so everything I did outside a few days ago ( AHEM)  would be lit up and ready for Halloween. Kiddo loved it and it was just […]

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 […]

Bento Body Parts Lunch

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 […]

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. […]

Day of the dead Bento lunch

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 […]

Celebi is a Pokemon that is one of my kiddos favs. Shout out to Aunt Isa and Uncle Matt for sending her one last year for Christmas cause she LOVES Celebi cause it is one of the “girly” Pokemon (sadly not many girls in her class have a love of Pokemon so she likes to […]
