"A week of My Little Pony?" Awesome!! My oldest is a huge fan of these sweet technicolor cuties; and I knew she would be completely enthralled with each day of this fun girl toy themed week! She voted Rainbow Dash as her favorite...no surprise there!! But I loved how Apple Jack turned out! What do you think?
Monday: Mini Chicken Pinky Pies!
Tuesday: Twilight Sparkle
The lunch was boring and plain today with just the star symbol of Twilight Sparkle. Yes, I tried making tiny unicorn faces to add to the bento, but I just couldn't get it right...I gave up! I was disappointed, but the girls didn't seem to mind and munched up lunch just fine, which was great! In this lunch they had sushi rice topped with stars and veggie falafel balls. I packed Missy Lulu's favorite mozzarella balls with cherry tomato and cucumber stars. They also had a few sweet Finnish strawberries as well. Nice enough then!
Wednesday: Shutterfly Wrapped Sushi Ball
Today was a another bento learning experience for me. I was trying to make a wrapped sushi ball with pepperoni butterflies and soy wrapper (Mamenori) Shutterfly. I saw it working clearly in my head, but reality was slightly different! LOL ! I'll try again with less attempt at details, for a less muddy look. Anyway, we have a sushi rice ball topped with my attempt of a mamenori Shutterfly. The girls both had fruit cocktail, a grilled chicken drumette, a tiny tomato, butterfly cucumbers on a pick (Shutterfly's cutie mark), and a princess cookie.
Bento for Kidlet. Jenn's artwork is so fantastic and inspiring for me, plus her sense of humor is great and really witty. She gives a dynamic tutorial on how to use food safe pens to create wonderful art for bento! Do exactly what she says, and impressed you will be!!
I tried her technique again for Missy Lulu's snack bento and I loved how it turned out! Here, she had another PBJ (with a cheese drawn Shutterfly), sliced chicken nugget and grapes.
Thursday: Aplomb with Appledash!
By Thursday I felt as if I really knew what I was doing ! Ha! It was
pretty easy food and yummy! Breakfast for lunch; with pancakes and
applebutter, scrambled cheese eggs, and a sweet little apple from our
back yard apple tree! The Appledash is made from cut out cheese and the
food pen again...I'll lay of those after my fun for this week! ^-^
For the snack bento there was another fluffy pancake with applebutter (in the sauce container), and another tiny apple. I was really pleased and the girls ate everything!
Friday: Rainbow Dash!
Last day with the pony bentos! Today I made Missy Lulu's favorite pony, Rainbow dash.
For the snack bento Missy Lulu and Baby Sunshine had a super treat!
