Bento Thursday

Since my kids are spending a couple of days at my parents and I am on MOMMY VACATION!I only bento'd once this week, but I got a ton of new bento-ing stuff, so I was excited to do this one!

In the bento on the top you have a bunny cheese and turkey quesadilla with candy eyes and heart necklace. You also have pretzels and pink marshmellow flowers. In the bottom bento you have carrots (because what else are bunnies going to eat?) and dip, berries, and a strawberry lady with a hat pick and a Nori paper face. Can you see her winking at you?

I also bought myself a bento! I love it, with it's seperate compartments and it's lock and lock lid. It also comes with plastic chop sticks...which I struggle with. Usually I'm pretty good with chop sticks, but these? Not so good. It even has an insulated, matching lunch bag. Love it!

I am going back to work on Monday, as much as I am dreading that, I wish you lived close enough to pack my lunch too! I may have to start bento-ing myself....but I am rather back to wishing you were closer!

Cute, D. So what happens with the scraps from your bento shapes? (do you get to eat the bunny quesadilla "clippings"?) Or do you do the shape before cooking, like your pizza slippers? Questions that keep me up at night... :)

Rach, usually the kids eat the scraps late at night before bed or as they run in and out of the room. Occasionally I throw them away. Sometimes I cut out before I make them...usually it's after I make the sandwhich/quesidilla.
