Mummy Dog Bento

Everyone has made them, kiddos love them and they are perfect for Halloween… What am I talking of?  Well the wieners wrapped up in a biscuit of course. Too easy to make and even easier to make into MUMMIES.

I have a Halloween cookbook and I have seen these a million times before so I thought why not. Kiddo loves these too. the easy thing is to make sure you leave a “mummy face”  uncovered to add some eyes.  I used regular biscuit cut them in half because I was using mini dogs, kinda roll dough into a log and … More

Lady Bugs & Butterflies Bento

 Cute Lady Bugs & Butterflies Bento today!  I choose this because as my kiddo and I are in the garden weeding and getting ready to plant in a week we are finding ladybugs on the horseradish and rhubarb growing wild and free in the garden. Plus in the yard we are seeing a lot of little “pretties” aka butterflies too.

So to make this bento I steamed some GF bread to make jelly rolls and used the rest to make mini sammis with lady bug baran on top,  above the blue heart separator I used fruit leather to make hearts … More

Bunny Egg Bento

So yet another  cute bunny bento, I know its getting kinda old but my kiddo still loves bunnies so were good.

I added some brown rice with cucumber flowers. The centers are carrot on all flowers, including the turkey roses. I added a strawberry which by the way are so sweet now! Gotta love the nice weather were getting some great tasting fruit now. … More

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

Hello Kitty Breakfast Bento

Winnie the Pooh Bento

I was recently just moping in my head how my kiddos are growing up to fast and I miss the “baby years”.  I am sure as many Momma’s out there do also ( insert big SIGH).  I love that my kiddo is still good with being my “baby” since she is the last one.  I also love that she is in no way pushing to grow up quickly!  Unlike my first born she was gearing to be a teen and now a teen gearing for adulthood, much to quickly for ol’ Momma to catch up or try to slow her … More
