Funny story, when I first made the rice I added too much water so the rice was almost this gelatinous goo (like rice krispy treats when you just add the rice) it was so slimy, and they weren't rice balls more like rice blobs. Though after a night in the fridge they're a little more manageable. :D
1 - Orange Cranberry Glazed Pork
1 - Brown Rice (with carrot heart)

Little one's snack bento for preschool. Picky eater is on a cheese stick and strawberry binge right now. He is also really into the matchstick carrots. Maybe he's not so much of a picky eater as a selective eater, he selects only a few item, and for days at a time that is all he likes to eat.
I also gave him a strawberry cobbler bar and some grapes, I wonder if those will get eaten?
Great stir-fry, fried tofu, bright red grape tomatoes on the "bottom" tier. Sticky rice with a grape tomato in the "top" tier. Not pictured: a small apple.
This is one of my favorite boxes. It says "Pleasure Supply: The simple form makes a beautiful and practical lunch box. You can have full realization of its high quality, use by use."
So I’m not a weekend bento-er for sure!
Too busy being 20 to bento on weekends but I have discovered that my mom and fellow co-workers watch my bento-ing (HI MOM!) and are curious to see more.
So here we go again!
Today we have octo-dogs (I love watching them cook) Some sautéed peppers and onions in tin foil packet, my mom’s favorite salsa dip in the heart (she has a bowl of it waiting for her at home), ketchup and mustard in the mini muffin papers, Carrot tulips covered by Frito chips.
The salsa dip is just sour cream, cream cheese, salsa (we like the mid western one with corn in it) and shredded 3 cheese blend. All mircowaved together and mixed.
2 oatmeal onigiri = 1 cup of oatmeal (2 points)
1 tsp. dried cranberries (0 points)
2 Morningstar Breakfast Links (1 point)
1/4 cup grapes (.5 points)
1 tbsp. Lite Syrup in the blue strawberry (.5 points)
Leftovers from last night's dinner:
Top Tier: Bow Tie Mac & Cheese, Island Rice, Shrimp, Salmon
Bottom Tier: Salad w/Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette in the bottle, Tangerine, Vanilla Cream Cookie.
Didn't quite finish all the bulk baking yesterday, and today I watched the Inauguration and am dealing with a sick kid, but hopefully I'll get it done later this afternoon, and then I'll have some better bentos.
I have trouble doing anything for my fiance but I still try.
Salad (casear dressing on side), Egg salad sandwich, heart carrots
Top: Rice, beans
Bottom: Steamed broccoli, grape tomato, cheddar cheese
Check out that little bitty apple! It's only about an inch and a half high by about 2.5 inches in diameter. I suppose it says something about me that the first thing I thought when I saw these was "chibi apples!"
(Website post, with links to recipes.)
this is a VERY dessert friendly dinner. LOL

These were so adorable when posted last week that I had to copy them. I had the devil's own time getting the nori decorations to stick though, I tried water, cream cheese and finally butter and the things still kept falling off (note the missing whiskers). Any tips?
Also brussels sprouts, carrots, grapes and leftover pork chop on skewers.
PS: sorry for duplicates for those who read my blog. Took me a while to figure out the LJ change that makes you select which blog you want to post to!

|Bento # 479
Yaki udon with carrots and romanesco, decorated with cucumber stars & -moon. Fried fish dumplings shaped as Hello Kitty and the bear. Soy and nori for decoration. Sweetcorn and a carrot flower. Cherry tomato with balloon pick.
Top tier: Meatballs, Wee Brie, soy sauce in the bear bottle, and jasmine rice
Bottom tier: Grape tomatoes, crackaz for the brie, grapes that I swear look more appetizing in person, and a peppermint patty.
The question: For those of you who own the apple and bear bottle set, HOW IN THE WORLD do you get anything into the apple bottles? I tried ranch dressing and realized it was too thick, so I was going to put the soy in there instead, but I couldn't get that in either :/ I'd hate to just let them go unused because I'm too dense to figure them out. Halp?
Yikes! I lost my camera cord for awhile there so no bento pics. How sad :( However, I found it today in my car of all places :P
Kidlet has some sort of Pokemon (I forget now what he told me it was lol) drawn on rice cheese on top of a tofurkey sandwich with checkered apple and grapes. Can you tell I need to grocery shop? lol
