Beef stir-fry and some sweet treats

Hey guys! I haven't posted here in forever, but of course couldn't stay away!


On the left I have some brown rice and beef stir-fry. I even got to make use out of a food divider!

On the right I have fresh raspberries, a dark chocolate square and a mini orange dreamsicle cake (from Costco).

Hopefully this isn't a no-no but in case any of you read my blog, I switched domains about a month back and my new site is  Please update any bookmarks or readers.

It's good to be back, hopefully I won't be as sporadic!

Thursday's bento.  We left Friday for a wedding so this involves very uncreative food to help clean out the fridge.  Purchased PB&J crustless sandwich (never again), cucumber alligators (idea from Cooking for monkeys website), banana rounds, coleslaw, and pepper tips.  I think all but the coleslaw was eaten.

Fishy Fenton

Fish Stick

Fenton is made from a fish stick, but that doesn’t bother him. What does bother him are his huge ears. His mother always assures him that he is quite handsome, but he still has his doubts…

Bento #130: Equinox Harvest Feast

Made for bentochallenge's theme this week, "equinox."

In this colorful masterpiece, a mini breadstick cornucopia is filled with Cider-glazed chicken with cranberries, and surrounded by red and gold fuji apple leaves, seedless green grapes, and bits of chopped baby carrots, along with a mini sweet potato tart, all on top of a romaine lettuce leaf.

Online Store

During AWA this past weekend, I came across these guys in the dealers room. They also have a website, so I thought I would share it. I bought the star/heart egg molds and a new 2 tier box, and when I get a chance to make a lunch in it, I will totally post pics.
