Hello world!

19 Jul

Here is my first bento post! Whoohooo!

Kinda exciting. Kinda scary.

This was a bento I made for a local magazine in their back-to-school issue.  It’s a pretty standard bento that I can whip out pretty easily in the morning for my daughter’s lunch. For this sandwich I used whole grain bread for the soy nut butter and jelly sandwich.  The jelly was strawberry-papaya, and I received it as a wedding favor.  It was REALLY good. (Thanks Sheila and Mike!)

Hello Kitty is made from a slice of white cheese, I think it says swiss cheese, but there are no holes.  The whiskers and eyes are made from nori, the nose is made from a slice of american cheese and the bow is made from kamaboko (Japanese fishcake).

Other ingredients in the bento include: pretzels, strawberries, blueberries and carrots.
