The last day of school is tomorrow. Hard to believe another year has passed us by! Today each of my children has their end of the year class parties. To celebrate the day, I made pandas for the kids in my daughter’s class. I didn’t plan on making them, but her classmate asked, and I couldn’t say no. I’m such a sucker!
I punched out the nori last night and woke up early to assemble the pandas. My husband helped me by waking the kids up and making them breakfast. That was a huge help. It took me about 10 minutes to make 5 pandas. I know… nuts! I have a friend that thinks I’m out of my mind. LOL!
Just a typical leftover bento. I didn’t have too much time to make it cute or to be creative but I managed a cute face. I originally wanted to put the cheese cutout in the heart of the apple, but it slipped right through. So, on the top it went.
Three more days if school enforce summer! Whoohooo!
Field trip bento for my daughter and her friend (last one from the auction lot that her friend’s mom won). It’s the last week of school, so we won’t have bentos for awhile as I don’t make them during the summer.
Simple hot dogs and rice bento for my kiddos today. Nothing cute. In my mind its just a simple bento. I tossed the hot dogs in a pan (no oil) with a little of mirin. We have soooooo many organic strawberries so it is the fruit of choice right now. However my son will not eat strawberries with the “skin”. He hates the seeds. So he got apples with carrots punched in.
Happy Tuesday everyone.
Simple yet cute. I didn’t originally have cute faces, but I had a little bit of time and figured I could put a little cuteness in the bento for my kiddos.
The chicken is leftover from a luau we went to yesterday. It’s really good! My daughter likes the chicken, but firmly said no to the kalua pig and poi. Lol!
Breakfast for lunch bento for the kiddos today. Lol… Not that I’m trying to be creative but because I have nothing else to give them. Proof that we had a great long weekend?
Waffles, hard boiled egg (without yolk), strawberries and syrup.
Okay. This took a lot of brain power. My egg sheet didn’t turn out right and it doesn’t fit the rice properly, but you get the idea. I am worried that the carrot nose will come off when opened but the other elements should be okay. I have to say, my favorite element is the ladybug. Lol. But getting the nori to stick to the tomato was a challenge.
I got the bear idea from Cooking Gallery. She’s got amazing work!!
