Gyoza Pocket Sandwiches and Puzzle bento in Planetbox Rover (2)

As I usually make wontons by hand I almost forgot that I have this gyoza maker which I've used only a few times. I've collected so many bento supplies over the years and some get overlooked. When using it I found that you have to be careful as using too much filling will cause them to burst which makes for a still tasty but less than aesthetic presentation.

In the first bento I noticed that one of the cucumber slices looked like a smiley face, can you see it too or is my mind playing tricks with me, lol?
 
Scroll down for the puzzle bento which was easy to make with my lunch punch sandwich cutter.
These lunches were packed in a Planetbox Rover.

4 Roll-Ups Lunches in Easylunchboxes Urban

You know that we love our EasyLunchboxes containers, so we were quite excited when we received the brand new urban colors (charcoal, brown, gray and olive lids) in the mail a couple of weeks ago! We also own the Easylunchboxes classic and brights sets, and are thrilled to add the urban set to our collection.

Nikolai enjoyed these super easy and quick roll-ups lunches which were packed in our new Easylunchboxes Urban containers. Four roll-ups lunches, four different versions!

The first bento lunch was ham and Coby Jack cheese roll ups in a jumbo silicone cup, organic apple slices, broccoli florets, and Annie's organic cheddar bunnies in a silicone cup with a new cute pick from Bento USA . This lunch was packed in his Easylunchboxes urban with the charcoal lid.

The second bento lunch was tortilla roll-ups, pretzel crisps, cucumber slices in the main compartment. The sides are organic granola bar cut into half and orange slices.

The third bento lunch was bread roll ups with a cheese wrapping into which I stamped fun faces. Again I used a silicone cup to separate it from the crackers, and organic applesauce in a leak proof mini-dipper. In another silicone cup I put some grapes with a pick and also included broccoli and a small container of ranch dressing. This lunch was packed in his Easylunchboxes urban with the olive lid.

The fourth and last bento lunch was a couple of simple bread roll-ups with organic baby carrots and rocket shaped cheese crackers from Trader Joe's. I also included the juicy plum and some cucumber slices with a pineapple pick.This lunch was packed in his Easylunchboxes urban with the gray lid.

Ninja Bento

Happy Monday and I hope y'all had a great weekend. The weather here is warming up a little so we went to the annual Greek festival on Saturday, it was great fun and the food was superb as always. My family calls me a 'foodie', 'cause wherever we go I have to check out the restaurants first. The new ones are great for when we are in an adventurous mood, and other times I adore those mom and pop restaurants. I'll better stop writing about food. I can go on and on.

Occasionally I have the memory of a bento idea refreshed when I look at a special bento box. I have always wanted to make a ninja bento but never did get to it, and this cute Kokeshi ninja bento box inspired me. I used pumpernickel bread (cut with a circle cookie cutter) with provolone cheese and nori for the facial accents. He also had thin cut slices of apple and sugar snap peas as sides.
