Posts Tagged ‘strawberry hearts

Back on the school train this week for a 4 day week.  Today I used the Lunch Punch train cutter for Miss G’s sandwich.  The wheels are fruit leather, and the cat is the train driver.  She has watermelon pieces, strawberry hearts and small honeydew melon trains below packed in her LunchBots Uno.

Miss A had her first day back to mom’s morning out.  She has a fruit heavy lunch with plums, pineapple, watermelon and raspberries and blueberries clockwise with an apple shaped sandwich for lunch packed in her sistema bento.

I also spent some quality time at the community pool over the weekend with the family.  We had a chance to try out our new picnic sized bento box from BentoUSA.  It was great for family sized snacks without the runny mess!  Hope everyone had some quality downtime to recharge over the weekend.

Things I used to make these bentos:

I have been looking back over some lunches I did a while back.  Some of you may have seen them already on Facebook, but I thought a tutorial might help if you’re looking to replicate them at home.

I made this one with flatbread, but regular bread or sandwich thins work nicely too.  I hand cut the sandwich shape.  Kitchen glasses work nicely to cut circles or just a plain circle cookie cutter work well too.  I used raisins for the eyes and a craisin for the nose.  Kitties whiskers are 2 strawberry Pocky sticks broken and stuck into the sandwich.  You can find them in the asian section of your grocery store or at almost any asian grocer.  They’re about $1 per box, and use them quickly because they get stale fast.  I also hand cut Hello Kitty’s bow out of fruit leather.  I cut a V out of the top of the strawberries to take the stem off, and it usually comes out heart shaped.  On the flamingo pick are 4 organic grape tomatoes.  I included cocoa almonds for a treat and cheese flowers.

I really like LunchBots to pack the lunches in.  I buy them through http://www.reuseit.com where I find tons of great stuff to replace the disposable products most people use.  They are stainless steel, wash well and never pick up odors from day to day like plastics will.
