Bear Buns!

I would love to claim I created these buns but I can't. United Noodle has them in the frozen section. I didn't even find them, the girls did! They squealed, lol. They are red bean paste filled buns. Thank you oh bear bun creator for making their lunches super cute and super easy!! I added a few edamame beans, a couple of pork dumplings, some sesame rice sticks, and freeze dried strawberries too. Fun bento day!

It's Friday! Er, I mean Wednesday!

That means it's the end of our school week! Both girls home Thursday and Friday for the first time, except, of course, they're doing state testing those two days this week so one will go in one day and one the other. But, only a few hours each day so not too bad. Leftovers again! This time, it's leftover beef stroganoff, some thyme decorations, dried fruit, imitation crab, and finally, some dried peas. Here's to almost Friday like but really Wednesday almost week!

Undressed? I think not!

As I finished these Bentos, I saw there was no decoration. I was going to leave them naked, but I just couldn't do it. I had to add something, so I went out to the garden and found some basil leaves. There, much better! Leftover homemade hamburger hot dish with basil leaves, orange slices, and a mixture of sunflower seeds and roasted soybeans complete these Bentos.

Happy Day!!

Flowers for success! Nissa loves it! No tears! Well, except for a moment when she forgot her lunch but Annie reassured her that I'd bring it after she texted me to be sure. Here are their lunches for a successful second day:

Back To School

We have begun again. Both girls have now attended three different schools and this new year, will hopefully mark the last change. No more tears, lots more smiles. Here are their first day lunches back together at the same school again:
