Baby Bento

My little one has been feeling a little left out with all the attention focused on her sister's lunches. During our shopping trip yesterday, I let her pick out a bento box. Today she insisted that I make her lunch in it AND take pictures. SO, although this is not technically a school lunch (she ate it while sitting on the couch), I'm posting it. Hey, it's my blog...I can break the rules!

Quail egg, pb&j butterfly sandwich (homemade peach jam and natural peanut butter), cucumber chain, dinosaur egg pluot.

The butterfly was a total fluke. I was cleaning out the cabinets today and had the cookie cutters on the counter. I just grabbed one and that was it. I really liked it though and think that my big girl will be getting one in her lunch next week...with more decoration, of course!

I don't have any cute bento dividers so I used a celery stick that I wedged in the container.

My little one was so proud. She ate everything and then carried it around all day!

I LOVE the cucumber chain. I think my son would actually try eating them if they were in a chain! Thanks for a cool lunch idea.
