Start of September

Hey again! This time I stuck another couple of weeks together just to try and get caught up. There are some in here that I was REALLY pleased with. Hope you see something you like, too!Gyoza...more

Getting Back To School!

I am finally, finally back. We had a very challenging but overall very good summer and now the school year is looking really promising. A few adjustments, some more difficult than others, but overall I think we can handle it! And I've been making lunches and taking pictures of them, too.  So let's get started!I'm lumping the first couple of weeks of school together because I didn't take a picture of every single lunch, and also because the first couple of weeks were short.First day breakfast!...more

Friday Bentos

I'm really starting to enjoy this now and can't WAIT for next week to try new things!!!  In the meantime, here's what Miss Girl had for lunch today:...more

Sandwich and Stars and Another Big Bento

It was pointed out to me yesterday that calling the bento I made for myself an "adult" bento could cause some confusion. So I'll be calling them kid bentos and big bentos from now on! So now that that's settled... I took some inspiration for Miss Girl's bento from yesterday's. She tends to like fewer and fewer "kid" things....more

Back--With an Adult Sandwich Bento!

Apparently I'm unreliable at best when it comes to updating here. I get bored and it goes right out the window. But now I'm starting a whole new adventure in bento-making, so it's exciting again!  I've only been making bento lunches for my girly, and while they're fun in their way, I get bored with them. Now, I've decided to start making bento lunches for my guy and myself. Even though I work from home, having a bento made will hopefully keep me from my usual bad habits. It's so tempting, working at home, alone, at night to eat poorly. Time for dinner? Do I want to cook for one?...more

Moonlit Night Bento

This was Miss Girl's last bento lunch before Halloween! The picture it a little bit sloppy, but the lunch wasn't too bad. The top tier has a cheese moon, two bat sandwiches of different sizes, and a witch-on-broomstick sandwich....more

Dinner of the Damned! Or Something...

This really isn't a bento, it was what we had for dinner on the last night I had Miss Girl before Halloween. But it turned out pretty good and I was overall pleased with it, so I'm posting it anyway....more

Mummydog and Tombstones

Miss Girl's third Halloween-y bento was a little sappy, but she was pleased with it so that's what matters!The top tier contains a veggie mummydog with ketchup eyes (and a little cup of ketchup on the side for dipping), some snap peas and carrot sticks, and two chunky Colby Jack tombstones....more

Fingers and Toes

Fingers and toes...fingers and I the only one hearing this to the tune of that Christmas song, "Silver and Gold???" I am?  Hmmmm...Here's her second Halloween-y bento (from the 26th):The top tier contains a good amount of leftover pasta with marinara sauce, some cheese, and a veggie dog finger and a veggie dog toe. Gross!...more

Finally Back! Pumpkin Patch Bento

I know it's been a while. I have a TON of bento pictures, and of course have not put any of them here. But the Halloween ones are so much fun that I'm skipping straight to those. So here goes!...more
