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

Earth Day Bento

This is last years bento from earth day I dropped the ball for this year so enjoy!

Earth Day is Friday so to help celebrate our Big Blue Marble (remember that show?) I made my kiddo a Earth Day Bento. Yes, I know it is Early but Friday she has half days so no lunch and tomorrow, well I just may make another one.

I have the Earth Day Bento in a green bento box of course. I made the Earth out of GF circle cut bread, on top I used egg dyed blue and green. OK food coloring is … More

Welcome Spring Bento

Welcome Spring! Yesterday was the first day of Spring! Colorado is definitely showing signs of it too, all last week was WARM! This week was cooler but by Friday we will be not wearing coats again!

So to honor the nice weather I made Welcome Spring Bento. In this bento I was able to use some left over take out from dinner, always a plus…

In the center cup is fried rice with some cheese flowers and a cherry tomato, some ham roll flower roses and pea pod leaves, string beans (also from last night), chicken nuggets with a blue … More

Frankenstein ‘ s Bento

I went shopping and picked up a few items that would add some fun to my Halloween bento lunches for my kiddo. With a green tortilla I was inspired to make a Frankenstein Bento lunch today.

Frank is made from a spinach tortilla (not GF) she has non dairy cheese inside and GF turkey. His face details are Nori for hair and eyebrows, and cheese for eyes and mouth. Underneath him is a big black spider decoration crawling across some veg. Next to him are some purple grapes with eyes staring at you and a little meat roll below that.… More

Piggy Bun Bento

My kiddo loves those steamed BBQ Pork buns from our Asian Market. I love them because in a pinch they cook up in 10 min (steamer) and in a thermos they stay nice, soft and warm.  The only problem is it is not easy to make cute food in a thermos. So basically I just decorated the bun with a little piggy face made up of meat for nose and ears, then some nori for eyes.  My thermos has a top container that is small but you can cram some goodies into. I put a piggy carved apple, some string … More

Lucky Bento

Well I am late on posting anything, last week was crazy here with kiddos not feeling well and appointments. I am just now making her a quick bento for St Patrick’s Day. Better late than never. 

I call this one Lucky Bento, because I was lucky to find this box at a resale shop for CHEEP! it was like new!  I am always on the lookout for stuff I can use for bento and you never know when a find will pop up!

I had to quick put this one together for St Patty’s Day and with my brain in … More

Dinner Bento

I have not been making bentos like I used to we have been busy in our garden. But I made this Dinner Bento the other day for my kiddo to make up for the lack of bentos since school has been out. I need to step it up and at least give her a couple a week. Can you say Bento Guilt, LOL!

She was so happy to get this since it has been a while, how cute/sad is that? Oh well, Mommas have to learn no guilt here just hard when you want to be everything all the time … More

I Love Breakfast Bento

I believe yesterday was international pancake day, so in light of this I am reposting this cute bento I made from last year, plus kiddo is sick home from school today so no bento :(

This is the last bento before our BIG Disney vacation. We are leaving bright and early so we have as much time in Florida as we can!

This bento has a love bug in it because Valentines is just around the corner and my kiddo loves breakfast. So the I Love Breakfast Bento was made special just for her!

The best think is of course … More

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.

This one I call Bear in Love Bento because she is so cute and I added heart picks with carrot flowers around her. 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

Disney Movie Brave Bento & tutorial

My little one loved the movie Brave by Disney so since this week was special I made her a more special bento. I want to make this weeks bentos all themed about things she loves.  So Brave Bento was made.  We loved the Brave story about this rough and tumble girl, my kiddo totally felt akin to this movie because that is exactly how she is.

With the Brave Bento I made her out of dairy free cheese (Galaxy Rice slices Mozzarella flavor & Veggie slices Cheddar) and used food coloring to make her eye color, mouth and the word … More
