Ever since I made the Kai Lan bento, Miss G has continued to ask me to make it.  I asked her who her 2nd favorite character is, and she said Rintoo.   Rintoo is Kai Lan’s little tiger friend who is loud & playful.  I used a kitchen glass upside down to cut his face and a small circle cutter to cut his ears.  The stripes are the heel of the bread handcut with a knife.  He has fruit leather eyes and mouth with vanilla yogurt covered raisin bits for the pupils and his snaggletooth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along with Rintoo, Miss G has flower carrots on the left, the pig container contains ranch dip and the bamboo shaped watermelon chunks.  The watermelon actually looks like upside down bats…note to self for Halloween!   On the right are seedless green grapes with some fun decorative picks.

Miss A gets Annie’s Organic macaroni shells on the bottom covered by corn off the cob, three little colby cheese bears and leftover chicken breast pieces.  The middle bear has black sesame seed eyes.

Which way to the fruit?  Quartered seedless green grapes with watermelon arrows and a blackberry in the middle.

Mr. Working Man gets his usual sandwich and a giant bento of fruits & veggies to keep him healthy. Included are watermelon chunks (some hidden), seedless green grapes, mini carrots, blackberries on toothpicks, 2 medjool dates and a Babybel cheese in the middle.

I am feeling a bit uninspired this week.  We’re going on vacation for the first time in a long time, and I am just not motivated to cook!  I am hoping the break gives me time to dream up new ideas & come up with something a bit more creative than this.  Little Miss G would be sad if she didn’t have a special lunch for school so I whipped up a little seahorse sandwich on whole wheat.  He has a royal icing eye and cheese designs cut with a small wave cutter.  I cut the fish from hard boiled eggs and gave them black sesame seed eyes.  I used blueberries for the water, crinkle cut carrots for more waves and then cut octopus shapes out of strawberries.  Ranch dip is in the yellow container for the carrots & unseen is her Lifeway Kefir pouch to drink and ice water.

Today was a lazy lunch at home. Used the crown/heart LunchPunch cutter for the sandwich. Carrot sticks, ranch dip, clover shaped pear, grape flower & green bean chip for the stem.
