My Melody Bento

I did not post any bento for the past few days or any recipes due to a family “THING”… Dont ya love it, life at any moment can turn your world upside down. My question that I will ask the BIG GUY when I walk thru those pearly gates is ok, I dont mind the bumps in life. I get that (sometimes), but WHY does it happen in three’s?  3 things all in a row I mean come on that was a rought one. I will say that I did alot of praying and things are working out…I just dont … More

Celebi Pokemon Bento

CelebiSMALL

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 show them it is not just a boy thing and they have cute Pokemon too).  So when I asked her what Pokemon would she like in her lunch she said Celebi.

I knew I was going to use some leftover homemade fried rice for her … More

Winter Kitty Bento

WinterKittySmall

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.

Today is unlike my usual bentos as it is chocked full of gluten products! I know my bentos are usually gluten free but her new allergist wants her to eat gluten today. To test her intolerance. I don’t want to but OK…Hoping all goes well … More

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 the Mickey bread stamp.  I then toasted the bread (lightly) and made her a Peanut butter and jelly sammy with it.  I added some cute Mickey crackers (definitely not GF-gave her a pill to make her handle it) that we bought at the … More

Monkey Business Bento

I love monkeys, because that is one of the nicknames I call my kiddo.  When we are being all cuddly I wisper I love my monkey or when she is all wired I call her my silly monkey, you get the picture.

So with my monkey in need of a bento for lunch I made her Monkey Business Bento. The sammi with monkey face is from a toast press I think at target? I outlined some of it with food markers. Behind the sammi is some leaf baran with some strawberries (cant see), a green monkey thing we got from … More

Birthday Bento

BirthdayBento

Saturday is kiddos birthday.  My baby turns 11 (insert huge SIGH).  She is getting a birthday bento early at school because today they are celebrating it. She gets it a bit early because for one  the real day is Saturday and secondly there is no school this Friday because of testing.

I know before you start to think oh there are marshmallows in this, not healthy!  I just want to say that I hardly ever put sweets in her bento lunches. This of course is a special Birthday Bento, so rules are no longer applying.  Anything in moderation is fine, … More

Cute Hello Kitty Sammi Bento

With my daughters new found love of bread another sammi today in the bento and its Hello Kitty.  One of the few “girly” things my kiddo loves.

Hello Kitty is made with potato bread (Hello Yummy) and she is a PB &J.  Was going to use nutella and PB but we were out :( and for all you nutella haters, if your kiddo is eating healthy you should not have to worry about a little nutella spread so get over it!  Its not like she sits there with the jar and a spoon, that’s just me who does that LOL!… More

Simple Bear Bento

SimpleBearsmall

My simple bear bento lunch for kiddo was inspired by the cute little panda cookies I bought at the Asian market. Such a cute cookie I had to buy it for kiddos bentos.

To make this bento I made a basic sammi with GF bread (Udies hot dog bun) I added ears made of carrot attached them with a pick made of GF uncooked spaghetti. I also added some nori detail for face and a cute little blue bow pick. Opposite I added the cookie, some baran grass a small sausage with a flower cut into it, heart silicon cup … More

Left Over Lunch Bento

It was one of those mornings where I really could not get up and slept for that extra half hour, WHY do I do that to myself? The effect was then a rushed morning for Momma. Rushing to make breakfast, rushing to make bento for lunch, rushing to make Daddy lunch, rushing to brush hair, rush , rush and rush….. AARRGGHH!

 With so much fun for me this morning I decided, well she liked dinner last night so guess what your having for lunch today folks…  Opened up my bento “stuff” grabbed some animal picks (this will always get a … More

Hello Kitty Breakfast Bento

Hello Kitty Breakfast Bento for my kiddo!  We both love Hello Kitty and who doesn’t like breakfast? So a  Cute Hello Kitty Bento is the best of both worlds, plus I put as much pink as I could this morning considering we are moving and I have nothing out.

Hello Kitty herself is filled with some cute marshmallow sweets,  behind her is a bottle of strawberry syrup for the pink heart shaped pancakes that are in a red liner (thank you freezer stash). With the pink heart shaped pancakes are a few red cherries with a pink pick. Below is … More
