17 Bento #240 - Dr. Seuss Bento Blog Hop The Lorax & Oh The Places You'll Go

Friday, March 2, 2012


As I mentioned in yesterday's Green Eggs & Ham post, this is Dr. Seuss week!  Some of my fellow bento-making-mamas have decided to do a Dr. Seuss-themed blog hop, so mosey on over to Nina's Mamabelly's Lunches With Love blog and see her Seuss bento too!

First of all, I want to thank my husband for making these most adorable humming-fish drawings on my pink-dyed gyoza.  I tried my hand at some, and they were atrocious.  I freely admit to stashing those rejects in another container which is also going to school, but in less fancy packaging.  I will have more on the blue rice "water" and my other natural coloring tomorrow, but suffice to say, I am HOOKED!


As you may imagine, this bento is inspired by The Lorax, and this being Dr. Seuss week AND the debut of the new movie with the same name.


I made two different types of Truffula trees, one being of mandarin orange and the other of a crazily-carved Baby Bel cheese.  The trunks are pretzel sticks.  Everything is laying in a pond of blue "water."


I also have a bunch of cherry "balloons."


I also made an after-school snack of naturally colored farfalle pasta tossed with olive oil and a side of basil pesto.  This one was inspired by "Oh, The Places You'll Go"






Bento #240 - Cherries, mandarin orange, pretzel sticks, jasmine rice, Baby Bel, and chicken gyoza.  Snack - Farfalle in olive oil and basil pesto.

Now don't forget to check out Nina's Mamabelly's Lunches With Love blog and see her Dr. Seuss bento too!
