This is from a while ago, but I don't think I ever posted it. It's kind of a safari theme, I guess, with the trees and animals. The bear is mac&cheese, the giraffe is olive, the stars are carrot, the lion is cheese, and there are also pears, peas, and broccoli trees.

A Mommy Bento

Ellie's bentos are cute, but this is what mine typically look like... Kind of boring if you ask me! But they do the job. =D Apples sprinkled with cinnamon, peas, pepperoni, and pretzel sticks with cheese! Fruit, veggie, protein, grain, and dairy, all in one little box!

Happy Fall, Ya'll!!

Today was a BENTO day!! First bentos I've made in a while. Woohoo! I had one and Ellie had one - and hers was Fall themed! It included:

- Apples (cut into apple shapes =D)
- Cinnamon Sugar (in the little apple container)
- Peas
- Pepperoni (on leaf picks)
- Cheese (aka Tofutti, the fake cheese we must feed Eliana)

It was a hit! She devoured the peas first, and they were gone in seconds.

I *heart* birds

I don't remember exactly when I made this bento, but I discovered it among our pictures recently, and thought I'd share. I'm not sure what happened to all the bento making lately, except that we are home most of the time and I don't need to send a lunch with Eliana, except for Wednesdays, when we go to town, but we have to be in town by 9 and I am not usually on top of things enough to make the bento the night before or the morning of. So... I'll see what other bento pictures never got posted and work on updating this blog. Then I'll make an effort to bento more frequently!!
