First can I say how much I hate my piece of crap camera and can not wait to get my Nikon next week. *fingers and toes crossed* With that being said, here is today's lunches packed into our perfectly portable Easy Lunch Boxes.
A sea of rice with carrot fishies. I used a paint brush to dab food coloring onto my rice. I used different depths of color to create movement and texture and it actually looked wicked awesome...but then I covered it with the fishies so it's kinda hard to tell and my camera sucks so..oh well. Then we have a duo of jumping dolphin chicken "nuggets". A Clementine with the stem nub used as the fish eye. Whale shaped cheddar crackers are in the above compartment and an apple is next to those. Little tip: make your apple the last cut if you have no lemon...I didn't and it browned very quickly.
M has a girly octopus quasadilla. Egg and nori for the eyes, radish skin for the mouth and
C wanted a crab or a Care Bear. Since we are doing a sea life bento we decide to mix the two...lol Speaking of, Shannon at Whats For Lunch made an adorable Care Bear the other day so we inspired me for the 'Care Crab'..lol Silly I know but C loved it. I used egg for the eyes and tummy plate, radish skin for the star and nori for the eyes. For some reason he looked like he should be cross eyed.. so he was ;)
