Thoughts of Easter

Bunnies (yes again), grass and eggs in this bento made me think of Easter. I don't know if Annie will peel the eggs and eat them, we'll see. I just really liked the way they looked in their shells, without which, that bottom row would really have been very... tan! Blueberries and Kiwi on the top, tomato slices and bunny cheese in the middle, and quail eggs and dumplings on the bottom. Eat well Annie!

And just a little insight to my insanity, can you see the difference between this picture and the one above? After I took the pictures, I, in all my analness, found it necessary to make a change. Of course, during that change, I slightly and unintentionally moved things in another spot. There was only a short pause as I tried to decide which picture to use. Now, be glad your thought processes aren't like mine, haha!

Flower Child Bunny Bento

I seriously like bunnies and even more seriously, like my new face punchs! They make faces soooo easy to do. Now, I just have to figure out how to make them stick to the food and not the covers. On the left side are Bunny Kamaboko and Cheese sandwiches on a pile of carrots surrounded by Kalamata Olives. On the right are Kamaboko bunnies surrounded by apple flowers divided by, yes... carrots again!

The Three Bears

Green Kiwi and Apple leaves in the top row. Dumplings and Kalamata Olives in the middle row. And The Three Happy Foccacia Bears in the bottom row with Nori faces on a bed of lettuce. I hope the faces stay put!

Butterfly Bento

Kiwi, Kalamata Olives, Yellow Flower Pick and Norby's Yummy Whole Wheat Focaccia in the top container.Turkey and Havarti Happy Butterfly sandwich surrounded by carrot flowers. Annie ate everything! Yay!

February Bentos - Chicks and Hearts

Here are the February bentos I've made so far. Annie informed me that next month she is only eating lunch at school on Fridays (pizza day of course) and one other day and that's it. So it will be a bento crazy month! Here are the pictures:

Kamaboko fish bunnies and mandarin orange halves in the top row. Chinese tea eggs and kalamata olives in the second. And quail egg chicks and carrot straw in the third.

Kiwi ground with a blueberry river made me think of summer. Cheese curd, cherry tomatoe and olive salad sit next to them. A chopped salad with a pressed bunny egg and a cherry tomato flower with a leaf bottle of balsamic glaze for dressing and a cheesy center.

It is the month of love afterall! Kiwi hearts, heartcups of blueberries and oranges in the fruit row. Chopped tomato, olive and lettuce salad with carrot and cheese hearts in the middle row. And a heart egg broken in half, with veggie dumplings and cherry tomatoes.
