Pardon the corny title, it's late and my husband is whistling "The Chicken Dance" as he does the dishes, and it's a bad influence on me.
Yesterday I was online browsing luggage stores and came across this totally adorable lunch bag! I have a real soft spot right now for owls (E's class is called The Owls and their class mascot is named Whooo.) This one's by Skip Hop, and has a matching backpack. Hold me back! Utter cuteness.
As for today's bento, as the title suggests, I have some cute bear friends holding hands. Right now World Market has their cookie cutters on sale, BOGO free, and they are the perfect size for a slice of cheese. I made a loaf of sandwich bread today and that's what the bread in this bento is, Mr. Brown Bear was made using the heel piece.
You'd think that buying a fresh fruit salad is a waste of money on a small scale, however I've found recently that they've been a very cost-effective way of getting a variety of fruit that I'd not otherwise get, especially this time of year. It's a huge bonus that it's already cut and prepared. I bought a 2lb fresh fruit salad bowl this evening for $5.92, and I know I spend that much on just one type of fruit, let alone the five or six types that are included. It just makes sense!
Bento #142 - Homemade bread, Monterey Jack cheese, celery sticks, homemade chocolate chip cookie and fresh fruit salad.
