4 Bento #227 - The Owl & The Ladybug

Tuesday, January 10, 2012


BACK TO SCHOOL!  Today we have a super CUTE pot bellied owl PB&J sandwich with a jolly apple tum, cheese and blueberry eyes and apple beak and feet.

For the body I freehand cut the bread because I don't have a large oval cutter.  For the belly I cut one side of a Jonagold apple, and then used it as a template to cute out the middle piece of bread, and then set the cut side down on the peanut butter.  The wings are pieces of crust.

The ladybug is a Baby Bel, tab pulled off and cheese removed.  I cut out the dots with a small circle deco cutter, and then put the cheese back in.  The eyes are two of the cut out dots squished together.

We also have some really sweet and delicious fresh blueberries.  These are the best I've had in a long time!  We had some for dessert last night with sliced kiwi.  Ella actually made the salad herself, she's very proud of it and wanted some in her lunch.

Bento #227 - Organic peanut butter and strawberry jam with an apple slice, cheese & blueberries, croutons, and tossed salad.  Snack - Carrot apple Crusher and peanuts.
