Christmas Pudding Bento

We are knee deep in Christmas preparations now and it is very hectic! Kidlet has one more day of school before winter break and he is very excited. Today's lunch was a Christmas Pudding bento! Still trying to decide on tomorrow's lunch!

Christmas Pudding is a soy chik'n patty sandwich with cheese icing and dots as the berries. On the side are checkered apple, carrot, and cherries.

This is what my kitchen table looks like right now! 24 mini loaves of Almond Poppyseed Bread all packaged up for Kidlet's teachers tomorrow!

Potter Puppet Pals Dumbledore Birthday Bento and Birthday Pics!

There's a mouthful! Today is Kidlet's 11th birthday. 11th!! I never feel as old on my birthday as I do on his :P This year Kidlet requested everything to be Potter Puppet Pals themed. If you've never seen the videos you should check them out, they are quite hilarious. *some language warning if you have little ones around*

Lunch features Puppet!Dumbledore made from cheese and food color sitting on a soy Chick'n patty sandwich. On the side are blackberries, grapes, and carrots.

Kidlet this morning feeling very bouncy about his Birthday in his new sweatshirt!

Gingerbread Man and Tree Bento

 Continuing on with some winter theme bento, today Kidlet got a gingerbread man and a tree! I am happy every year that he grows older and still lets me pack cute bento for him! Of course now there are more rules....certain things are not okay and not always what I would expect! For now he still delights in seeing what I will pack for him and I love that!

Tree and Gingerbread man are peanut butter and honey sandwiches. On the side are carrots, striped apple, and grapes. All packed up nicely in one of our EasyLunchboxes

Winter Mitten

I usually don't start winter themes until after Kidlet's birthday but decided to break that tradition this week :) We had Kidlet's friends at the house over the weekend for a Harry Potter birthday extravaganza. After all, it's not every day your young man turns 11!

Lunch today is packed up in one of our EasyLunchboxes and contains a mitten peanut butter sandwich with tortilla accents. On the side are carrots, grapes, and a little apple tree.

 Kidlet's birthday cake which took several days to complete. Top is vanilla cake. Bottom is chocolate with oreo filling. Wand and scarf are fondant.
