Cat Mini Waffles Breakfast For Lunch Bento

We have so much leftovers from Easter dinner, but we are low on fruits so I am contemplating some grocery shopping. I am also out of nori (seaweed) and had to use fruit leather for the whiskers. Of all our traditional Japaneses bento boxes, I have come to love the Monbento box the most and if I had to choose only one traditional bento box, this would be it. It can be used either as a single or a double tiered box and I love the durability and feel of the plastic.

In this bento lunch:
  • Top tier: Mini waffles( stacked) with raisin pieces for facial features and fruit leather for whiskers, maple syrup in a small Monbento sauce container and a granola bar.
  • Bottom tier: String cheese slices, raisins and baby carrot slices in a pea pod container. Organic apple sauce in mini-dipper and a spoon wrapped in cloth napkin.
  • This lunch is packed in our Monbento box.
Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Bear Kebabs Bento

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. The kebabs I had as a child were called satay (pieces of meat grilled on skewers and served with peanut sauce) and I love them. Lunch on a stick is a hit with Nikolai and I have made fruits, french toast and more kebabs, some of which can be seen here. I added a little twist to his kebabs today with cut out cheese bears in the middle of the sticks.;)

In this bento lunch:
  • Kebabs made with fun bites squares with bears cut from Mozzarella cheese and facial features are from cucumber peel. Along side are silicone cups containing bear crackers,and raisins with a panda pick.
  • Upper left : Cucumber and carrots
  • Upper right: Strawberry slices and grape.
  • This lunch is packed in an Easylunchboxes
