A Little Lion Lunch!

Back from Spring Break. If I were Kidlet I would say it was refreshing and relaxing. But really, it was exhausting! I am glad he is back in school :) I was silly enough to allow Kidlet to have a sleepover party here...only two additional boys but good lord! Who knew three boys could make so much noise....for so long....and never tire??!!? Never.Again!

Today Kidlet's lunch is packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes. It contains a cheese sandwich with lion decoration, pretzel rods, yogurt with sprinkles, checkered apples, and carrots.

Froggie Bento

Winter lighting rears it's ugly head again. I usually take my pics outside but when it is gray and rainy like today I am stuck. I've considered a lightbox or maybe Pendant Lighting to fix this but I'm having trouble making a decision. Anyone use a light source other than the sun they can recommend?

Kidlet's lunch today is a soy ham sandwich with a little froggie face. I finally found some sugar eyes and couldn't wait to try them! On the side are grapes, checkered apple, and orange slices.

Fun Bento Finds!

If you live in the Cental Ohio area, there are a couple of places to find cute bento boxes and a few accessories! Kidlet and I had a little birthday shopping spree in honor of my turning 28 yesterday or  "becoming super old *according to Kidlet*"

Hana Gifts is a great place for all of your Hello Kitty needs. Since we do not have a Sanrio store anywhere near us, this is the next best thing. Half of the store is basically devoted to adorable stationary and Sanrio goods. The other half has books, kitchenware, and household decor.  The prices aren't the cheapest but since we don't have to pay shipping I find it evens out.

I believe we used great restraint! Kidlet got an adorable Pochacco bento, the top left red Hello Kitty bento is a gift for Kidlet's gramma! the two lower boxes are mine, muwahahaha! They each hold two more boxes, another pic of that below! We also picked up some more baran and an adorable Hello Kitty ice mold!

Here are the box sets I found and I am so over the moon for them! One set is Rilakkuma and they are all sitting on cakes and sweets! The set on the right is Mamegoma and they are also on sweets! How adorable is that??! I could not resist them....

Next door to Hana Gifts is a grocery store called Tensuke Market. They have a great selection of grocery items as well as an attached restaurant. If you like sushi they also have a TON of that. While they do carry a few bento boxes, the prices are hilarious. Seriously I laughed out loud a little. They do have a few accessory type items that are more reasonably priced as well as rice molds.

The best find I encountered was packets of Pokemon nori cutouts!! Fantastic, Kidlet was so excited for this!

Among the tasty treats we found I also picked up a container of tiny paper bento cups and an adorable rice bowl with pandas on it! The Hi-Chew pack is open because Kidlet could not wait.

So, today is Dr.Suess' birthday! I had an adorable bento planned for this event but I got the days mixed up! I thought it was tomorrow :/ bah! I didn't realize my mistake until I had already packed Kidlet's lunch. So, Happy Birthday Dr.Suess! Thank you for penning my favorite book ever written :)

Kidlet has a Husky Puppy made from food colors and cheese sitting on top fo a peanut butter sandwich. On the side are checkered apple, strawberries, and carrots
