Three Bears Chili Bento

Today was the wintery-est summer day I've ever experienced. It was cold, gray and stormy all day long. I was very tempted to put the heat back on but I couldn't bring myself to do it. It's practically July! Weird. Anyway, it seemed a fitting day to bring chili to lunch, tucked into a lettuce leaf and topped with shredded cheddar and three mozzarella cheese bear faces. As you may recall, I was informed by MisterMan that he does in fact like "raw" (unmelted) cheese, despite what I've reported here, and that it's only STRING cheese in particular which remains undesirable. But it's the SAME cheese, you say. Whatever. I think I got the whole rainbow in here with the sides: strawberry, carrots, oranges, broccoli and blackberries. Woo! He went on a bowling field trip today and said he bowled a 110, including 5 strikes. Um, what? Turns out the kids have their own alley (probably with wider lanes and no gutters!). He had a blast, saying it was "just a hair better than the tech museum."  ^_^

    Hi Diana, Glad to hear you'll be starting to make bento for your daughter. I got lots of inspiration from other bentomakers when I started too. Hope you have lots of fun!

  10. What an adorable way to dress up chili. I might be able to get my girls to try it if I made it cute like this.

  11. Audrey's mom, this is a super easy way to make it look nice. Just cheese and a cutter. Hope you can try it!
