Bento Summer School Week 3


C's lunch box:

Salami and cheese star sami with sliced grapes, blueberries, pickles, snap peas, cucumber flower, red bell pepper spears, mini orange on a bed of alfalfa sprouts, strawberries with Cool Whip and star sprinkles and star yogurt covered cookies.

M's lunch box:

Same as C's minus the pickles and her sami is PB&J

I have now come to the realization that I can no longer make a simple lunch. I honestly set out just to throw a sami and some fruit into our Easy Lunch Box containers..but before I knew it the box was unfolding in front of my eyes and ideas and colors were swirling through my head. I found myself rummaging through my bento supplies to find picks and cups...I couldn't stop.

So while I was on this path of creating I figured I might as well turn it in as my homework for Bento Summer School Week 3. This weeks theme is "Color" using fruit and veggies and not food coloring. So this is what I came up with. Wish I had more red leaf lettuce to layer in my box, but I ran out a few days ago. So I made due with what I have at the ready and I think it works, plus as always, it was a hit with my girls ;)

p.s. Isn't the mini orange cute with the stamped flower. Got the idea from Hapa Bento and because of the flower the girls were able to peel the oranges themselves!

Beautiful, the colors look great!!

That giraffe pick is the entire reason I need to go shopping in California, because obviously a plane ticket is much cheaper than Ebay. ;o)

I can no longer make simple food either, and F&B are confused when the food isn't pretty!
