Cute Bunny Bento

Yea, springtime is here and Easter is around the corner!  So Bunny Bentos are going in full swing for now.  My kiddo loves all things bunny (as do I), we even had rabbits. They are fun pets, but dont live too long so keep that in mind if you ever decide to get one.

Cute Bunny Bento is my kiddos lunch today. I love the little faces! For this bento I made little bunny rabbit sammis with cute pick bow and a pick hat, nori face. They are sitting on a mix of greens, some baby carrots and a cherry … 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

Star Bento

Star Bento was created quickly as I could not function this morning. The reason I did a star theme is because we went shopping yesterday and we saw this STAR FRUIT and we have never eaten one before. So I am crossing my fingers that it will not taste too weird for my kiddo at lunch.  So with the stars in my mind I made little space men too.

Bento has two GF hot dog buns and hot dog space men, their faces are cheese and nori with a cherry tomato antenna. Space consists of Lettuce with cheese stars, an … 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

My daughter wanted something special for her class on her birthday. I was tired of the same ol thing and so was she. The cupcake.  Not to dis this cute little confection but everyone brings cupcakes.

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.

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

Cute Panda Bento

 So today is a simple and quick bento. The Cute Panda Bento was put together because I have been getting leftovers sent home. I hate food waste so my bentos will get on the smaller side until kiddo shows signs of I need more food.

Does not mean cuteness has to stop since the package is smaller!  Today I put this bento together with the easy to decorate boiled egg. Gotta love the boiled egg, they are yummy and can be decorated so easily.  My panda was simply just nori face and ears punched out and a cute heart pick. … More
