Prince Fluff

So naturally, when I finally get a chance to bento this week, Kidlet has no school. We woke up to the snow coming down and an automated call from the school saying it was closed. Oh well, he enjoyed this at home :)

Kidlet and I have been playing Kirby's Epic Yarn and he plays as Prince Fluff so he needed to be in a bento!Bad lighting is brought to you by our lovely snow storm. pfft.

Kirby and background are cheese and food coloring markers. They sit on top of a peanut butter sandwich. On the side are checkered apple, carrots, and strawberries

And now, for all of you Facebookers, you cane now follow BentoForKidlet :) isn't that fun? Check the box to the right!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today is Valentine's Day, a day most people either love or hate. Despite being single I am a fan of Valentine's Day! It's a good reminder to let the people in your life know how much you care. Plus it means I get to cook everything in heart shapes.

I made these heart shaped soft pretzels last night and they are delicious! Never having made soft pretzels before I didn't know how they would turn out but they were easy and so good! I used this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod and instead of making bites I shaped the dough in to hearts. Just make sure to pinch the ends together well so they don't fall apart and splash you with boiling hot water. Not that I know anything about that.

Kidlet has lunch packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes. Two soft pretzel hearts, container of mustard, strawberries, soy sausage, grapes, and checkered apple.

And here's a shot of the heart pretzels. So cute!
