Owl always love you...

Bento Owl

I couldn't resist the punny title! This is Eliana's bento from today. Nothing too fancy, super easy to put together. But I think it's so cute! Perhaps because I have a wee obsession with cute little owls... The silicone cups hold pasta and spaghetti sauce, topped with Tofutti and olives to make the owl eyes. The bottom is full of baby carrots and a few more olives, and the beak is a heart shaped pumpkin muffin.

There you have it. Easy peasy and cute to boot!


  1. Are those the new containers? So cute!! (And by the way, thanks to you, I was keeping my husband up last night explaining to him my plans for a "Thomas the Train" bento....I just haven't figured out how to make the rice body blue yet!)


    That's a good post for learning how to make different natural dyes. If you don't care about the natural dyes, blue food coloring would always work. =D Otherwise the general consensus seems to be purple cabbage juice mixed with a little baking soda. The soda turns the cabbage blue for all your dyeing needs!
