Hello Kitty and a pasta monster
Posted February 27, 2012on:
So the Bento Blog Network is having Hello Kitty week. I put in a lunch from last year, but I am overdue for a Hello Kitty lunch considering how crazy Miss G is over her. This one would have been fabulous had I put it together last night. Since I did it in a rush this morning I had to patch a few botched cheese oopsies. The actual sandwich is cut from a circle biscuit cutter on Rudi’s 14 Grain Bread with almond butter & jam. The cheese for Hello Kitty’s face is Veggy brand “Mozzarella” cheese made from soy. It tastes just like cheese to me but it’s a lot more fragile to cut than real cheese (hence the tearing). I used a template and a tiny paring knife to cut her face out. The bow underneath was a bit mangled so I made a new one of a raisin in the middle and 2 Craisins for the outside. The whiskers are fruit leather strips poked into her face to stay. The top left cup has watermelon and strawberry flowers and the top right cup has spinach leaves for garnish, blueberries underneath and a plum slice flower.
Little Miss A has been a super picky eater as of late. The terrible 2s have really set in with her. She’s come out of her little shell chucking food and climbing furniture like a pro these days. Appropriately she gets a little monster today for lunch. On the right side are quinoa veggie curl pasta with eggplant meatballs. His eyes & nose are made from the same Veggy “cheese” slice, his mouth is a crinkle cut mini carrot and above his eyes are Daiya vegan “cheese” shreds. On the left are watermelon and strawberry flowers packed in her polar bear bento box by Gel-Cool.
