I sometimes don't bother posting the Monday bento because I am usually running late and the rushed bento doesn't look pretty...but this time I am posting it. It's a simple one; a quick and easy sandwich on a fluffy wheat bun. I fried some ham and an egg, melted cheese on top, and added a few baby spinach leaves. This sandwich bento box is a perfect size for it.
A few details turned it into a horse: broccoli mane, grape tomato and purple carrot eyes, maroon carrot nose, and a carrot smile. In the side box I gave him some red grapes, juicy strawberries and a mini mandarin. That's it! That's all I have time and energy for; and when I closed the box, the facial details smooshed down to stay in place. Yay!
I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 9yo (4th grader) son & my 5yo kindergartener girl every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
