Littlest Pet Shop, Puppy named Zoe Bento Lunch

Standard

For my daughter’s second to last day of camp, I’ve made a Littlest Pet Shop theme featuring Zoe the puppy. This was a very simple lunch.

Bone shaped French toast with syrup to dip, vegetarian sausages, a hard boiled egg with Zoe on it, strawberries in the shape of flowers and cinnamon pita chips.

Drawing was done with food color markers.

Summer camp, day three, Disney’s Brave themed bento lunch

Standard

Tomorrow is the third day of camp and my daughter is too excited to return. While she sleeps, I’ve been making her lunch for tomorrow.

This bento theme is Disney’s Brave, featuring some symbols and friends from Princess Merida’s world.

Vegetarian turkey deli slice roll ups with a little color added, a dill pickle, bunny crackers under the Brave with baby bear tortilla chip, a hard boiled egg with Angus the horse, raspberries, and two cookies with a somewhat Celtic design drawn on and another small tortilla chip with Merida’s bow and arrow.

This one will be a fun surprise for my daughter as she loves Brave!

All drawings were done with food color markers.

Summer Camp day two, Camping and Woodland themed Bento Lunch

Standard

Tomorrow will be day two of camp for my daughter and so tonight I’ve created another cute bento lunch for her.

This theme is Summer Camp and Woodland animals.

The lunch includes two grilled cheese sandwiches (a bear sleeping in a tent), a hard boiled egg (owl with the moon), carrots and pretzels as a campfire, strawberries and miniature (vegetarian) s’mores!

The miniature s’mores I made using organic cinnamon crunch cereal, cut pieces of dandie’s vegetarian (no gelatin) marshmallows and organic chocolate chips.

The drawings were done with edible food color markers.

Summer ocean themed Bento lunch for camp

Standard

My daughter is off to camp again for this year and so time to make her some fun lunches.

For her first day of camp I’ve created an ocean theme bento.

It is vegetarian and has two peanut butter sandwiches (the seahorse and a seashell underneath), a krackjack (Indian) biscuit(the dolphin), hard boiled egg (octopus), cucumbers (cut like starfish), ranch dressing to dip and grapes.

I drew on the food items with edible color markers.

Snacks for India Day Parade Bento

Standard

We are heading out to the India Day Parade here in Edison, New Jersey today and so I’ve made a snack Bento to bring along. I think it is appropriate to showcase love for India on the heart shaped peanut butter sandwiches, along with some strawberries, grapes and roll ups made with a tortilla, little cream cheese and veggie turkey lunch meat. This is a very simple and quick bento I made.
