Hi I'm a southern girl from Atlanta, GA. Married to a wonderful Nordic man in south Finland. Hubby and I have two gorgeous little girls and we all live very well! I love being a stay at home mom and all the fun things that includes.
It's not all work of course! I have an intense love for bento lunches, dinner parties, tablescaping, cooking, and shopping!
I made Missy Lulu a Mumin Bento for snack today. Mumins are are characters in children's books and comics by Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson. They are a family of funny looking things who are white and roundish, with large snouts that make them look kinda like hippopotamuses. They are a carefree and adventurous family, living in the forests of Finland. They have many adventures along with their many friends. It's a wonderfully creative and distinctive Finnish trademark!
Here in this lunch bento we have
A heart shaped pizza slice with extra cheese and Mumi Pappa and Mumi Momma
A big strawberry and blackberries
Apple juice to drink
I made the Mumin characters with provolone cheese and cut out nori pieces. The red pieces are little pieces of salami. She loves Mumin and was quite excited when she saw them this morning!
