Hello Kitty Bento Lunch

So with no inspiration this morning I went to Hello Kitty to rescue my bento for kiddo’s lunch. Making “girly” food is so easy with Hello Kitty, because all you need is her cute face and a few flowers and picks. That makes it quick and easy.

Today’s Hello Kitty Bento Lunch started with the kitty head. It is a small container I got a few years back at Easter time when the Bunny left her at the house. She is filled with dried fruits, next to her is some broccoli, cherry tomato with a heart pick. flower cut out … More

Cute and Easy Bear Bento


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

Spooky Bento

Halloween is just around the corner and now that were back home I am putting the Spooky Bento out for kiddo to have for lunch. 

Spooky Bento was made in a quick rush this morning so it is not as adventurous ans ones in the past, but I do need to go food shopping to have some space fillers.

For the Spooky Bento I used a ghost cookie cutter to make the sammi. I also added two blue glowing eyes to the ghost. Under that I had put champaign grapes with a ghost pick sitting with some carrot pumpkins. On … More

Cute Girly Bento

 Today I woke to another sunny and bright Colorado morning. I love that it is winter still but we get such sunny days!

So with thoughts of warm days I made this bento with a “flowery” girly feel to it. It is basically just adding some design to the cucumber with a flower imprint on it and a cutie orange peeled up to the top with some peel left on shaped into a flower and a sparkly pick added to the center, next is a container with freeze dried strawberries and other fruits, some raspberries tucked in open spots and … More

Pickachu Bento

My kiddo and I went online and found a site that shows Tokyo and the huge Pokemon store, needless to say she freaked out!  So we have been kinda Pokemon obsessed here thinking about how we want to go to Japan sometime.  We said how we would try to save so we can take a trip in a year. Then all our bento and Pokemon (Hello Kitty also) dreams will come true, LOL…

So with Pika on our brains, I decided to make this  cute bento.  I know I made a Pokemon Bento last week, but what can I say … More

A+ Kid Bento

First Day of school here and once again the daily bentos will be made.  It is exciting for both of us, she loves the lunches and I try to get my food crafting blood going.

I made the A+ Kid Bento because I was thinking of a theme for her first day and got inspiration from looking at old scrapbooks I had made over the years (insert big sigh).

A+ Bento comes with a slight advantage from all previous bentos, it is not gluten free. (in my head is playing Dum Dum Dum Dum like a cliff hanger from a … More
