Hello bento friends! I have been absent from the blog while we spent time visiting the in-laws in L.A. this past weekend. This week is our spring break, so there are no new bento to be made (probably). Here, however, is one I made for my boy last week.
Homemade pizza on pocketless whole wheat pita bread rounds: pepperoni, mozzarella and spinach. Wrapped in brown paper. With a side of black grapes, carrots, strawberry, and blood orange mixed with cottage cheese. I realized too late that blood orange works very well at coloring cottage cheese (and probably yogurt as well); I could have had pink cottage cheese all week! Oh well. I also tossed some walnuts on top for crunch. A quick and simple bento to round out the week.
Anybody else taking a break this week? Happy Spring, bento friends!!
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 ^-^!
