Bear in Love Bento

Here is my “valentine” type bento I made today for my kiddo. She had so much going on yesterday I could not make a bento for her on the real Valentines Day.

This one I call Bear in Love Bento because she is so cute and I added heart picks with carrot flowers around her. Cute Bear is made of a steamed BBQ Pork bun which my kiddo LOVES, fruit roll up (all natural fruit) flowers, baby corn, strawberries, blackberries, and if you can believe it brussel sprouts. That was request the other day when we were discussing our favorite … More

Lucky Bento

Well I am late on posting anything, last week was crazy here with kiddos not feeling well and appointments. I am just now making her a quick bento for St Patrick’s Day. Better late than never. 

I call this one Lucky Bento, because I was lucky to find this box at a resale shop for CHEEP! it was like new!  I am always on the lookout for stuff I can use for bento and you never know when a find will pop up!

I had to quick put this one together for St Patty’s Day and with my brain in … More

Fun Food Bento 2

My kiddo loves anything meat and cheese. She struggles with the desire to be a vegetarian but this past few weeks she is all meat all the time.  She LOVES sandwiches.  I admit to my love of all things bread so I must have somehow passed on that gene ;P

So she also loves anime, so I made her face in a sandwich for her bento today. My Happy Kiddo Bento….

It is two round cut out pieces of bread with a face on top of cheese face, mouth,and bow. Salami hair, nori eyes.  I also told her she needs … 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

Biscuit Animal Bento

Biscuit Animal Bento was so quick and easy using store bought biscuits in a roll. My little “bunny” got slightly over cooked as I was in the other room when timer went off.  The other biscuits I made did not over-brown cause I was more watchful.  Oh well my kiddo will still eat it and love it at least he wasn’t burnt, LOL.

So biscuit bunny’s face was drawn in with Wilton food marker (one application that actually worked out fine – see my review on food markers at:    http://mommasays.net/1015/product-review…e-food-markers   )

Under biscuit bunny is a flower biscuit, some spinach … More

Bunny in Love Bento

This bento was made because not only was it just Valentine’s Day but we just returned from a beautiful wedding!  So I am all inspired and in love… GUSH GUSH GUSH…

In my Bunny in Love Bento I made a bunny out of my favorite quick sticky rice (Annie Chuns brand). I sprayed her nose pink with food coloring spray (Wilton), added nori eyes on top of black food gel that looked yucky so I covered it, Swiss cheese for the lacy wedding veil and pick hearts to decorate her. In the cups I have some kiwi and strawbery hearts, … More

Heart Sausage Bento

I am posting some bentos that I made the last 2 weeks my kiddo had school but due to moving I never had a chance to post.

This one is the first time I think I used sausage to make  a heart.  It is simpler than you can think. Just get a small sausage cooked. then cut on the diagonal then flip the ends matching the longer point of the diagonal cut and use either a piece of uncooked spaghetti or a cute food pick if your kiddo is old enough and put the halves together. If using pick or … More

Winter Holiday Bento

I had a little extra time this morning for her Holiday Bento. So I noticed when I got all the supplies out that the end of the cucumber was kinda tree shaped so I used my tools and carved up some of the tree branches to make it 3-D ish.. I like how it turned out, especially with the star on top!

The rest of the bento was my usual array of veg that she likes along with some cheese snow on the “ground”.  I used left over meat loaf (GF) as the ground for the snowman pick to stand … More

Flower Bento

Flower Bento was made because I wanted to use the little quail eggs and hot dogs to make the cute sunflowers. This is so easy to do I will make a post on how to make and update. But anyways this bento has two sunflower eggs some banana chips, mini orange bag of cookies (not GF) and in the opposite side I made a melody of fruit and veg cut all up into flowers, I put little cute animal food separators to hide in the flowers.  The flowers are made up of pear, dragon fruit, radish and carrot. This whole … More

Cute & Quick Bento

Some mornings there is no inspiration for bento making. Luckily for kiddos you just need color, cuteness and variety for a happy bento for lunchtime.

Today that morning where I was flat lining for inspiration! So first I needed color, I grabbed a variety of pics and cups along with fruit and veg, to get me the colors and a corn dog because that always brings a smile.  Cuteness was next  looking thru all the picks and little animal things I decided a little kitty holding a fish would fit nice. Variety is all a go as I try to … More
