Breakfast for Lunch #Bento Comes to the Rescue :-)

30 May


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.


Bear costume bento

20 May


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!!

This is my first time using my Mickey Mouse set. I had to freehand the ears and forgot he has black on the top of his head too. So I didn’t quite nail the Mickey look, but you get the idea. :-).

Sleeping bears :-)

As I mentioned before (I think…???) every Monday for a month I’m making my daughters friend a bento as her mom won it at our school auction. Given the mount she paid, I’m trying to do something special. Yesterday’s bento were bears under an egg “blanket”. Under the blanket were a few pieces if chicken.



Gyoza field trip bento

10 May


Today my little girl, well she is not that little any more, went on a school field trip to a museum. We had instructions that they had to wear their red shirts and pack a disposable lunch. Over the summer, in anticipation of these types of events, I had my sister in law send me these adorable plastic bento boxes. They are perfect for field trips, plane rides or an average picnic date :-).

Today’s bento has a variety of food: gyoza, musubi, broccoli and carrots, oranges, kiwi and blackberries.
