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

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

Snowy Bento

We had snow the other day here in Colorado and I woke up today and it is still a dusting here. Weather outside is cold and I am wondering if more will come. I cannot complain we get some snow and then the sun comes out and it all goes away. One day freezing the next so warm you dont need a coat!

To honor the wacky Colorado weather, I made a Snowy Bento. I think it turned out cute and not holiday-ish (is that even a word LOL).

I recently bought these all natural funny face potato wedges, they … 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

Chicken & Waffles Bento

My kiddo loves waffles and who doesn’t love breakfast items at lunch or even dinner for the matter. So that made me think of chicken and waffles for the bento today!

I cooked some chicken nuggets and placed them into a silicon cup and did the same with the waffles. I noticed all the main food was very bland looking. So to add some color I added some raspberries and a cute chicken to the top of the nuggets and to the waffles I put a little shooting rainbow star. Next to the waffles I added some green beans to … 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

Christmas Tree Bento

Going all out here, this bento is busy with all kinds of colors and things to keep her excited at lunch today.

This Christmas Tree Bento is made out of sticky rice with a touch of green food color, sure I could have used peas smashed but I did it quick today.

 I added some sliced carrot and radish circles for ornaments, then I put sliced baby carrot for snowflakes all over it is topped with a ribbon decoration. I used a pick inside a star shaped egg, next to a carved radish then some meat flower and carrot slices, … More

Cute Bagel Bear Bento

My kiddo loves mini bagels problem not GF. So today she gets a tummy pill to be on the safe side and gets her wish of eating one mini bagel for lunch. If anyone know of a bagel that is GF and actually tastes good enough for kiddos let me know.

Today’s Cute Bagel Bear Bento is made from one small mini bagel cut in half and filled with PB & J. On the outside I made a cute bear face with some cheese ears and nose with nori for eyes and mouth, add a little cute pick for boy … More

Flower Power Bento

FlowerPowerSmall

While feeling uninspired this morning I decided to find something to spark creativity in my cookie cutters. I found a cool flower shape and inspiration was set.

I used the flower cookie cutter to cut some ham I then was frying it in a pan and thought I will add some egg. Kiddo loves breakfast anytime of the day so why not.  I had already put some rice in the bottom of the container and just used the container as a template and cut the omelet out with a knife.  I placed the cuttings into the rice and then laid … 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
