Regular Show: Rigby Bento

This is one that has been on my to-make list for quite a long time. Kidlet loves the Regular Show and I have no idea why it took me so long to do this!

Packed in our Planetbox Shuttle Kidlet has a ham sandwich with Rigby made of cheese and food coloring. Next to that there are mini toasts and hummus. In the side compartment he has strawberries, carrots, and grapes.

Curry Lunch and Mr.Flibble Cupcakes

Last night I made one of Kidlet's favorite dinners: Curry! Of course he wanted it again for lunch today which made things easy. I also made some cupcakes as a nod to Mr.Flibble of Red Dwarf.

Kidlet has some delicious vegetable curry and rice in his Thermos. On the side he has grapes, a checkered apple, chocolate cupcake, and dark chocolate penguin.

When I found these red gingham cupcake wrappers I knew I had to make some Mr.Flibble cupcakes! Mr.Flibble on top is dark chocolate with red glittery gel for eyes. Watch out! He is very cross >.<
