It is good to be home! As much fun as we had visiting family, friends, taking trips and shopping, there is nothing like your own bed, kitchen and TV..lol The girls and I (along with my mom) drove back to San Diego on Monday. Mom is here for the week hanging out then she'll fly back to NorCal this weekend.
So while I am finally trying to catch up on all my emails, missed blog reading for the week past and finishing a 3 outfit custom order the girls asked for a bento lunch. Of course they did because I ahve nothing but time...lol
Granted it has been a few days since I made one for them and while I was brainstorming on what to do for my Bento Summer School Week 2 assignment, they shot down all my ideas. So I finally asked what they wanted and they said "stars". Lately C has been teaching M "twinkle twinkle little star"..not just the 1st verse, but the 2nd and 3rd as well. So a Starry Bento it became. Personally I think the real inspiration was the yogurt covered cookies we bought last night at Trader Joe's, but whatever.
So they both got identical boxes made with our Easy Lunch Boxes containers. Turkey and cheese pocket sandwiches, onigiri, strawberries, cantaloupe, blueberries, snap peas, yogurt cookies and banana chips.
I now have happy campers again so maybe I can get some work done..lol Speaking of but not really...Target has this awesome 4 drawer storage chest for $14 bucks!! I got mine last night and was too excited to fill it up with all my bento stuff. Now it is all in one place, organized (some what) and is easy access now that it is in my kitchen. Loving it!
Small cutters, picks, mini cups, dividers, sauce cups
Larger cutters, egg molds, onigiri molds, sami cutters
