This bento almost did not get posted but I figured why not? Lots of my bentos look like this, especially on Mondays. Hastily thrown together and not very CUTE. Plus it was late and there was basically no light on this dark rainy day. Ugh. The upside is that it only took approximately 2 minutes to make it, most of it trying to get the sesame seeds to stay on. Briefly, this is TinySprite's bento and MisterMan's looks similar. I cut some leftover tomato - pepperoni - greens - mozzarella "pizza" to fit the box, and added a tiny piece with skewered pepperoni to look like a reindeer. You don't see it, you say? Well you wouldn't be the first. Neither kid saw it, and MisterMan actually asked if I'd made the Millenium Falcon. This shows you how desperate he was to give it a shot, any shot. I think he may even have been looking at it upside down at the time. WHATEVER. Other side has pomelo (or jabong, or giant Chinese green orange) and grapes. We were out much of this evening so there wasn't much time for bento. MisterMan received his next level belt at his class tonight, and we went out to celebrate ^_^
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 ^-^!
