Wraps Friends Bento and Corndog Minimuffins

A cute little bento for TinySprite in the round enamelware bowl with transparent lid I got from Daiso. It also comes in a square shape, and as nesting sets as well. These are a nice alternative to the stainless steel side boxes I usually use, and I like the clean white effect. Here I used four colorful silicone cups to keep things separate: chicken-lettuce-cheddar wraps in whole wheat tortillas, carrots, strawberries and grapes. I also tossed a couple of corndog minimuffins in her bento bag for snacktime. I made a batch of these cuties for MisterMan to take to school for his Valentine party (I found the recipe here), but of course I had to use chicken-apple sausages instead of hot dogs. They taste pretty good, if not exactly like corndogs. Fun idea though! Hope you all had a fun and enjoyable Valentines' Day with your loved ones. XO to you!

    1. Yes, don't the two elements go well together? I wonder if the white enamel will stain... but never mind since it won't happen today. I'll find out someday.
      Thanks Ceinwyn!

  6. Round and round, pretty and cute! Have to love this Zen form full of friends and delicious food!
    And now... I have another recipe bookmarked! I adore corn, corn meal, corn-whatever-corn... If the girls won't eat the muffins I might need to make the effort to end the batch (HA!)
    Hope you had a sweet Valentine´s Day too! Big sweet (coconut) smooches to you ;).

      Sweet corn is a good thing, I agree. Enough butter and the girls are sure to gobble them up I think!
      xoxs back to you! Thanks L!
