bentos

Mar. 26, '09

Yea, running a lot late today: nasty weather kept me off the desktop and that's where all my graphics and web stuff is.

Anyway, for...er, yesterday....

Mar. 26, '09

Bottom Tier: Chicken Corn Fritters (recipe here), Lite Ranch Dressing, Cashews, Teeny Tiny Cookies (so not worth what I paid)
Top Tier: Clementine, Club Crackers and Mild Cheddar in tinfoil, Celery Sticks.

I didn't realize how orange/brown/yellow this was until I started putting things together. lol But at least it had all the food groups and was tasty.

No bento for today. I thought about it and decided against it since I wasn't also going to be making one for baby. Won't be much of an excuse when she and mom go on vacation for two weeks, but somehow worked for tonight. *g*

(no subject)


here is my lunch bento for today.  It was made very hastily this morning before i rushed out :)

1/2 bagel with cream cheese, red grape skewers, easter candies and chedder cheese chicks, baby carrots and dried figs in purple container, mini pickels in pink container.  :)  yum, i can't wait for the candy  hehe!

hope everyone has a good Friday!

3/26 Bentos #115 & #116

CDC loves my meat loaf and mashed potatoes. This time when I made it for dinner I made some mini meatloaf balls for his bento. I put the mashed potatoes in a silicone cup with some shredded cheese on top and put it in the toaster oven for a minute to melt the cheese. He also got steamed broccoli and a container of ketchup. Top tier has a huckleberry muffin, orange bites, kiwi slices, and grapes.

 


Little One' preschool snack today had a blueberry cobbler bar, strawberry yogurt, orange bites and a strawberry kiwi skewer.

Lunch Box 640: Lunch for the Weird

Most of this lunch is pretty typical bento fare for me. chicken fried rice, steamed broccoli, edamame - all typical stuff. But there, imprisoned within its plastic wrapper, lurks a Ding Dong. Why a Ding Dong, when I have neat stuff like mochi and homemade banana bread and fresh strawberries? Well... I perform in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Normally I play Frank N. Furter, but we had an '80s Pop theme night and I played The Criminologist as Weird Al Yankovic. "Yo, Ding Dong, man. Ding Dong. Ding Dong, yo." I threw Ding Dongs to the audience at one point, but one somehow ended up in my lunch box.

The start of the toddler bentos!

I'm brand new, and I wanted to show you guys a couple of the bentos that I have made for my little ones. I'm a stay at home mommy to a 1.5 year old and a 3.5 year old, and I watch a 2.5 year old every day! So I decided that if I made their food a little more "neat" then maybe they would eat more! Haha! :)

3/27 Bento #117


This was my entry for the “how low can you go" contest over at Lunch in a Box.  For me this contest isn’t about trying to make the cheapest bento in the contest, I probably couldn’t do that because I buy a lot of organic foods. I wanted to make a bento that was as inexpensive as I could but still balanced and pretty like a bento should be. I made a “make your own mini pizza” bento. This is CDC's favorite and most requested bento and happily one of the cheapest bentos I do.

You can read about the contents and the cost breakdown on my blog here
