My kiddo loves those steamed BBQ Pork buns from our Asian Market. I love them because in a pinch they cook up in 10 min (steamer) and in a thermos they stay nice, soft and warm. The only problem is it is not easy to make cute food in a thermos. So basically I just decorated the bun with a little piggy face made up of meat for nose and ears, then some nori for eyes. My thermos has a top container that is small but you can cram some goodies into. I put a piggy carved apple, some string … More

I was recently just moping in my head how my kiddos are growing up to fast and I miss the “baby years”. I am sure as many Momma’s out there do also ( insert big SIGH). I love that my kiddo is still good with being my “baby” since she is the last one. I also love that she is in no way pushing to grow up quickly! Unlike my first born she was gearing to be a teen and now a teen gearing for adulthood, much to quickly for ol’ Momma to catch up or try to slow her … More
Cute Sammi Bento today, I have been craving peanut butter and jelly sammi so much cause of my dieting, not sure why, maybe just because I am not eating bread..
Well to at least lick peanut butter off the spoon, I made these PB & J sammis (GF Bread). I decorated the top with some cute flower sprinkles, then added a cherry tomato, beef roll into a rose with pea pod leaf, cup of berries with a heart pick, another meat flower, turkey cheese and tomato roll, pea pod, slivers of carrot.
It is pretty and colorful so my kiddo … More
The next in my spirited bentos this week is my Pumpkin Bento 2.
I used that minute sticky rice that I love now, because you can make cute rice balls in a minute (not talking about decorating just cooking).
See my review on this item under bento I did recently,
I used the minute sticky rice to make the scary pumpkin I used a touch of food coloring but mostly the color came from grated carrot I used on a micro plane. I made a Hello Kitty in a costume bat she is surrounded by lettuce and sliced cucumber … More
So the chill in the air and Chritmas around the corner I make another holiday bento.
The Christmas Stocking Bento is made with a sandwich using a cookie cutter and food coloring spray (ok I know not the best thing but hey its Christmas time and I like never use it- so no guilt trip here), half a mini apple with a star cut out, carrot … More
I had seen on some website a bit ago (I don’t remember who) they stamped their breakfast pastries. I thought how fun and put it in the files of my brain. Luckily it did not go in the recycle bin in my brain.
While shopping with my girls I found a bin of stamps on clearance, I could not pass it up. Then the file opened and I said, hey I can use this for food and BENTO!!!! So later on with food coloring in hand, I stamped up some mini sausages wrapped in biscuits and baked them up. This … More
I am so gearing up for Halloween here but as it is not even October I could not start with spooky bentos. So I opted to make a Love Monster Bento for my kiddo.
We are using some gluten products lately as I am sure you can tell by my posts and I will say my kiddo mostly missed bread, alas she has Momma’s love of carbs, poor baby…
So now we have a love monster sammi, made of a bagel(you could still go GF with this) with turkey for hair and non dairy cheeses for teeth, eyes and heart … More
Today I had no inspiration and no time. That means I end up making a bento that I usually would not post, but I figured why not show my uninspired days. My kiddo does not mind them so why should I. It is not that I don’t like this bento just doesn’t flow for me today. I need to go shopping for things because I like to fill all the void spots. I like them a little more stuffed looking I guess.
Simple Stitch Bento was a simple bento because it was nice and easy to put together. I have … More
At kiddos request she wanted an animal bento. She said she likes them the best. With Spring here and the weather was so nice but so rainy the other day. It made me think of that saying of how March enters in like a lion and comes out like a lamb, well that is how our May is here in Colorado. So with that saying in my mind I thought I would make some cute little lion bento. I was going to add the lamb but I didn’t think kiddo would get it and think the lion would eat the … More
We have had some nice “Spring-y” weather trying to show itself here, yesterday was so sunny and then today rain. I should be happy it is not snow, LOL.. My kiddo and I have started getting the yard ready for spring by starting our garden plants in the hot house and then raking up all the pine needles here in the woods. She is a great helper and we are loving the nice weather and look forward to the pretty flowers and our garden. This is what inspired my bento today.
Not wanting to waste the yummy dinner I made … More
