Cute Girly Bento

Keeping on the more fancy bento for kiddo, today I made a cute girly bento. I thought what would be more girly than something princess. But, alas my kiddo is not a “princess” type of girl (sorry Disney) she likes the more “brave” movie type of princesses. I do know that she loves animals and what could be better than a cute bear with a princess crown.

I made the princess bear by filling the center of bread with crust cut off, placing another crust-less bread slice on top, then with the aid of plastic wrap formed it into a … More

Cute and easy bear bento was inspired by my need for cuteness of course and some speedy bento making since I have been having issues in the morning lately.

I love how this turned out with the cute bear for lunch and so healthy is the bonus. All this food could have easily been leftovers from the night before if you needed. I however was quick to put it together because I prepped the corn from previous meal and froze sections of corn and put in baggie in the freeze so a quick pop into microwave in a cup of … More

Obviously another holiday bento lunch here, I was inspired by silhouette I had made previously of my family for Christmas decoration check it out here  http://mommasays.net/1520/christmas-victorian-silhouettes/    .  I love the look of silhouettes so had to make one as if kiddo is looking out the window and Santa and his deer are flying over Pikes Peak here in Colorado.

 

I painted on the GF DF cheese with gel black food color, under the cheese is a turkey sammi. Below that is a row of raspberries. Next in the bento is a medley of fruit and veg. I put green … 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
