Hey Diddle Diddle, The Cow Jumped Over The Moon bento

Do you remember the nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon......? I was organizing Nikolai's room the other day when I came across a collection of nursery rhyme cd's to which he listened when he was little. I guess I'll have to make the cat and the fiddle themed lunch in future.:)

I created the cow from my Animal pals cookie cutter set, the moon from my circle cutter set, and packed this fun lunch in his Fit & Fresh container.

In this bento:
  • Main section: Cow and Moon sandwiches. Moon topped with mild cheddar cheese (of course everyone knows the moon is made of cheese ;-) and the cow is decorated with provolone cheese, fruit leather, tiny chocolate chip and candy eye.  Also in the main section I included a granola bar.
  • Top-right: Organic bell pepper slices and organic baby carrots
  • Bottom-right: seedless green grapes with 'tree' pick

Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Butterfly Quesadilla and Bread Roll-Ups in Easylunchboxes

I had some tortilla on hand, so I made a quick and easy quesadillia for Nikolai's school lunch. When I cut up the quesadilla so it would fit in a lunchbox, I thought this one might look like a butterfly if I added a piece of string cheese for the body. :)

The second bento is an example of what can be done almost in less than five minutes. As some of you might agree, there are days when plans change on short notice and you need a quick solution such as this.

Both of these lunches were packed in his Easylunchboxes container.

In this bento lunch:
  • Quesadilla cut into four wedges, mozzarella string cheese and a couple of picks.
  • Cucumber slices and baby carrots.
  • Organic kiwi slices in a silicone cup.
Here is a super easy and quick bread roll-ups lunch. I used a rolling pin to slightly flatten the bread, spread with SunButter and roll.

Stop Light bento

Happy Monday! I have seen several cute stop light food creations online and I decided to make one for Nikolai's school lunch.

I made the green go light from cucumber peel, the red stop light is from pepperoni and the yellow caution light is from mild cheddar cheese, each of these was cut with a small circle cutter which was also used to cut the top piece of bread after I'd trimmed the crust from two sides. After assembling the sandwich as normal the three fillings just plop into the holes I made for them. I packed this lunch in his Yumbox Panino.
