Snowman Bento

With snow still on the ground here in the forest I made today’s bento another snowman. I just love snowman and wishing the snow will be sticky enough here to make one. We will have to try today after school. I even have a “snowman kit” I got a few years ago!

Back to my Snowman bento I had gone out to my now passed garden and actually found some baby carrots still there! The only thing is they are so small but perfect for bento! My Snowman is made of sticky rice (Annie Chun’sbrand) and has of course the … More

Garden Bento

 Todays bento is called Garden Bento because this weekend is planting day for us!  We are gearing up to plant our garden and crossing our fingers that our “green thumb” will start to show,LOL…

Cute Garden Bento was made using many picks of vegetables placed into some beef and brussel sprouts with GF  pasta and topped with BACON!  My kiddo is obviously not on her vegetarian kick this week, she just loves bacon way too much right now. LOL

I bordered the pasta garden with some green grass baran. Next compartment I put some apple slices, a cherry tomato with … More

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

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

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

Cute Animal Bento

 

With everything going on here I had bento guilt and made sure kiddo got her bento. While I was making it she saw it and said Oh how cute and then put more picks. So with here in mind it has many animal picks today and that is so OK she made it her own now.  I wonder if she will get the bento bug and then start making her own bentos?  Who knows but it would be fun to include her plus all that matters is that she likes the bentos, so if kiddo wants alot of picks … More

Cute Sammi Bento

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

Cute Animal Bento

Were back in the saddle at least for a few days. Making Bentos for today and tomorrow only this week.  For today I made Cute Animal Bento. Using Cute Z Cute Cutter which makes lunches so easy and quick, YEA! Gotta love when lunch comes together quick. I made kiddo two sammis today because after school she has been hungry lately. Guessing a growth spurt is on its way.

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
