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.

Please don’t forget to visit the Bento Blog Network and vote for your favorite Hello Kitty bento!  (HINT: mine are #20 and #23!)

I was a bit apple happy this morning so Miss G got an apple shaped sandwich on whole wheat with peanut butter, jelly & honey.  I put some green sprinkles on the leaf part of the sandwich.  This picture isn’t the greatest 🙂  The strawberries are all cut into small apples.  I used a small tulip cutter to make mozzarella string cheese flowers & put them on picks with leaves.  I halved an apple after using the same large apple cutter.  Then soak the apple in some kind of citrus juice and water to prevent browning.  Little G loves lemon juice so that’s what I used today.  I also used some cute separators to keep the sandwich from getting soggy.

Just including another awful picture so you can see that I included some leftover Annie’s mac & cheese and carrots cut like suns.  Underneath them I spread ranch dip.

Little A joined her sister for the morning at school again today.  She got two little elephant sandwiches, cashews for nibbling along with a couple of pecans, sun shaped strawberries and a mozzarella cheese stick cut for grass underneath.  In the small round bento, she also got leftover Annie’s mac & cheese with a cut up a Dominex brand vegetarian eggplant meatball which she loves.  Both kids drink ice water and get a pouch of Lifeway Kefir in their lunches.
