Bunny Veggie Frittata Bento

I love to make Frittatas, because they use up the leftovers and no one ever complains! In fact my kiddo said this was the best dinner ever and wanted seconds.  Luckily I had made a big one so we all had seconds and I had some left over again from dinner for her bento today. […]

Disney Bento

I am home from Disney so of course had to make a Disney Bento! While there I searched for things to use for bento of course, while in all the MANY gift shops and all I could find was a bread/toast stamp. I am happy I found something though!  So my kiddos bento was made today with […]
