Bento # 603

Today I found out that it's hard to see melted cheese on top of egg noodles *L* There's supposed to be a shooting star on top of them, but admittedly it's more than a little hard to see. Oh well, as long as it tastes good...

First day of school and first bento!!

My daughter started school today for the first time. So, to celebrate, I let her pick out her very own bento box from my stock collection and put it to use. (She loves pink, so she picked a pink bunny one.)

PB and grape jelly on wheat sandwiches cut into flowers, peanut butter crackers, raisins, and YoGos bits (which are some sort of yogurt fruity snack thing...) Lots of finger foods. Figured that was best for a kindergarten lunch time.

I  know it is simple, but I loved being able to make it for her, and that she loved seeing it when I finished. I look forward to making her lunch every day now.

(no subject)

I'm moving out of my house so I have to empty out the freezer! I try to put everything in bentos :)

Corn, lentil burgers, mixed bell pepper, all from the freezer! Carrots, a prune, cucumber dividers and a cucumber heart on noodles with some sauce, some herbs for decoration.
Hello Ktulu!

Bento Box #67

Contents: a couple of white rice onigiri, mixed veggies (carrot coins, cauliflower florets and cherry tomatoes) with a very happy soy sauce piggy, a sugar free coffee candy and a mini madeleine (these are so good!).

Whiskey-Honey-Chicken & Onigiri

Tada! After a year of no bento, here I go again - with nowhere to go to with it, but the urge of cooking bento again.

+ Whiskey-Honey-Chicken with carrot stars and spring onions
+ Twp bear-shaped Ume-Nori Onigiri (I'd really like such smiley punch-outs for nori :3 )
+ A flower-shaped egg that was supposed to be star-shaped
+ Three radish-shroomies
+ Physalis
