Ramen Robots

Here's a very simple lunch for the little ones. Maemae had been going on and on about robots so I embellished some instant ramen for them both and was pleased with the effect. M even loved her "girl robot" pick, as she called it.
T devoured his "boy robot" in record time. But M always has more important things on her mind. So when Aunty called inviting us over for a play day and dinner, I just popped the lid on her Easylunchbox and we were off with something to tithe her over til dinner was done. I love my Easylunchboxes!
There we are! A post on Mommy's spruced up ramen to come along with others I've been procrastinating on. Hope you were inspired! Be posting soon!

CuteZcute Uncrustable!

So I actually own a panda sandwich pocket maker. I won it in a giveaway last year. Unfortunately, it got left in California along with many other of my bento items, when I went to visit my family. So now I've got to make due without it for a while until mommy can send some more of my forgotten things over.
Anyway, here's a how-to for making your own crust-less pocket sandwich using your CuteZcute cutter. Hope it works out!

Shark Week Lunch: Round 2

So I mentioned in an earlier post that it was shark week and that I was not talented enough to fashion a shark for bento... Well.... Challenge accepted. Challenge completed. Boom!
Haha! Well enjoy! Get inspired! Be posting soon!

Chicken Salad Pita Bento

I love making this! Canned chicken, mayo, apples, dried cranberries. Boom! That's it. So yummy! Can also be made with fresh shredded chicken, of course. It's way tastier. But canned is what I had at the time.
Actually made this for my mother-in-law for lunch for work. She hadn't had time to eat and was running late so Easylunchboxes to the rescue! My sister-in-law and I finished off the rest. It was so yummy!
Sad story, though. Turns out mom didn't get a break to eat anything and she forgot to put it in the fridge. :( So I felt badly for eating the rest as she's in love with my salads. Le sigh... Next time, mom. I promise!
Anyway, hope you try it out and get to enjoy it! Stay inspired! Be posting soon!

Catching Up: Taco Lunches

Made these the other day in our Easylunchboxes. We had had crunchy tacos for dinner the night before so here's a spruced up leftovers bento for y'all.
While the kids get their taco toppings separately, Mommy's got a delectable taco salad. And nothing like homemade CuteZcute tortilla chips to add some fun to a rich meal. I love my extra crispy panda too! The color makes him so cute! I've even got crunchy Tiny Bits (the small punched out parts left by the CuteZcute cutters) tossed into my salad to give it a yummy crunch. Oh I recommend this so much!
Hope you're hungry now AND inspired! Be posting again soon!

Spaghetti and Meatballs Bento

Just like it says, we've got spaghetti and meatballs. This lunch took longer than necessary only because I had almost zero inspiration prior to making it and I was working with limited resources. But I hope it gives you some ideas.
T's bento was embellished with a mozzarella cheese ship and clouds, while M's is sporting some cheese fish. It's shark week and I'm lacking in shark themed accessories but I kept the Sea theme so it wasn't a complete failure. I'm no where talented enough to fashion my own shark yet. That doesn't mean I won't try. Haha!
Well there you are! Hope you were inspired! Be posting soon!
