A royal bento

Kidlet won't let me put princess crowns in his bento, so this was the closest I could get to making a royal wedding bento for him ;)

Kidlet has a boca chik'n patty on an english muffin, decorated with a cheese flag. Also included are cheddar bunnies, pistacios, oranges, checkered apple, and pears

Are you free?

This one may require a little explaination. One of our favorite shows is Are You Being Served? I used to watch it as a kid and it's fun to watch it now with Kidlet. If you're unfamiliar, it's a British comedy that takes place in a department store. During one episode they are having a German week and only selling German goods. The gimic doesn't go over well and only Mr.Granger manages to sell anything, strumpfs! Which means stockings/socks! If you've never seen this show you should give it a try, it's hilarious.

Kidlet has a peanut butter sandwich decorated with cheese. On the side are checkered apple, orange, and grapes.

Kidlet even got his own pair of fuzzy strumpfs in his Easter basket over the weekend!

Bunny roll bento

The sun has finally peeked out today! It's still pretty chilly out but hopefully the sun will start to warm us up! This is Kidlet's last bento for the week since they have the day off tomorrow! I found the instructions for these adorable bunny rolls at Lunches Fit For a Kid and just used my favorite quick dinner roll recipe!

Kidlet has a bunny shaped roll, Morningstar Farms veggie "sausage", checkered apple, red and yellow peppers, grapes, and a container of dressing

Egg-cellent bento

Trying out a new bento we got, review on it coming soon. I had a hard time filling it this morning and I'm not sure if that's because it's so much bigger than most of our other bentos or if it was the lack of sleep. Apparently no one told Ohio that it's spring now so of course it's freezing and rainy today. I left the windows open when I fell asleep and woke up as a popsicle!

Top tier has egg shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a side of yogurt with strawberry jam and sprinkles. The egg is decorated green with food coloring spray.

Bottom tier is grapes, apple bunny, red and yellow peppers, and a container of ranch dip.

Funny Gougere Bunnies

I used to watch the Martha Stewart show as a kid. I'm not really sure what other kids were watching but I'm guessing it wasn't Martha. I've been really enjoying her new series Martha Bakes and bookmarked this recipe for Gougeres as soon as I saw her make them. I knew I wanted to try making these and even go outside of the box a little and pipe cute bunnies and bears. Now that I am thinking about it I wish I had tried puppies too. Oh well, next time. To make the animals just follow the recipe I linked and instead of pipping circles....pipe a circle then pipe ears attached! Super easy.

Bunny Gougeres are decorated with cheese mouths and candy eyes. Behind them are Boca nuggets, grapes, checkered apple, and carrots. Underneath the bunnies are a small container of ketchup and some granola.

The bunnies were a huge hit with Kidlet! I think these would be fun as an appetizer at an easter party also!

Bunny pancakes

Bring on the bunnies!! Today we finally had some nice spring like weather :) This is the last of the pre-grocery store trip bento lunches so pics from now on will involve more color!  Check out other lunches today at What's For Lunch Wednesday

Kidlet has bunny shapes pancakes with a container of syrup, checkered apple, and yogurt with granola. Not the most exciting things but I think the cute bunny makes up for it.
