Puppy bento

Perhaps I have written earlier that we have a little poodle. He is a very cute little fellow and others who meet him when we are out for walks continue to think he is just a puppy. In actuality, he is fifteen years going on more. His intense curiosity earned him the name Snoopy.

This puppy bento is quite easy to make and one day I will probably make a special poodle theme bento. For this one I simply decorated a sandwich with part of the bread crust for ears, a slice of cheddar cheese cut to a circle shape and raisins for a face. This lunch was packed in a Fit & Fresh bento kit.

Smile Lunch and A Simple Lunch in Yumbox Panino

First of all, I would like to thank my friend Ming of Bentomonsters for getting me some super cute Disney themed picks when she went on vacation to Disneyland Tokyo.
Second, I'll confess that I did not send the pick to school with Nikoali. After taking the lunch picture and before I closed his box, I decided to remove the pick, lol. You will be seeing more adorable Disney picks in future lunches. In fact, I used the Donal Duck pick today.:)

Like probably everyone else, I also have days when I just don't have the time or inspiration to make an elaborate lunch, but I still try my best to include healthy basics. Here are a couple examples that have no special theme and took very little time

Both of these lunches are so easy to put together. The first one was stamped with a Smile cutter which I purchase from a dollar store few years ago. The second lunch was spruced up with a couple of cute picks. These lunches were packed in a Yumbox Panino.

Polar Bear bento

I guess lots of kids like bears, and Nikolai especially likes polar bears. Once my hubby made a Herbert P. Bear bento honoring one of his favorite characters from Disney's Club Penguin game which can be found here.

I used a circle cutter for the sandwich and another smaller one for the snout which is cut from provolone cheese. The ears are marshmallows and the other face features are made from raisins. This coming Monday is a public holiday here in the US and I can't wait for the long weekend. You have a nice Friday and a wonderful weekend! :)
