another bento by myfairygodmother another bento by myfairygodmother
don't make roll ups with peanut butter and jelly...its just not good. the green thing is a packaged coconut pudding.
She didn't like that either. I have learned to be careful removing kiwi from the egg mold.

mango stars on the rice

At least she likes to eat the penguins...thank you ~lizysizy

the yellow things are fruit jells and the other things are grapes.

The first time i saw the rolls I didn't know what they were. They look like you tortured them. but the rest is cute! *faves*

cute doesn't help if it doesn't taste good....all she really wants to eat is ramen, and avocados...I'm thinking of trading her for a puppy.

I must have put the ingredients in another bento listing...I was surprized its not here:)
they are black olives ( one is cut open to make the tummy) with cream cheese stuffed in and cheddar cheese feet and beak. a toothpick runs through the whole thing so you might want to be with him when he eats if he's very young. I found a really cute manga cookbook on amazon ( called the manga cookbook...) and "501 bento lunches" the second one does not have recipes but very good ideas...its obvious I have an obsession here:)

a chocolate mint. (Andes)
I met a teenager recently who didn't know poinsettias were real plants, she thought they were all silk. So I assumed it was possible you had never eaten a kiwi...

thanks, Yes, they are olives. I wish I could take the credit for inventing them. I saw them somewhere else first and just changed them a bit to make them easier.
I am a bit bento obsessed. I am really looking forward to going on vacation in a couple months. We will be going to Disneyland. The highlight of this trip for me is that we will get to go to Seattle on the way home and I can go to the Daiso store to shop for Bento boxes and gadgets!

that's so cool. I had never really heard of 'bento' before seeing them here, and just thought they were fun.. I like sculpture and trying to create stuff with other stuff.. I enjoy contume making, etc.. so it seemed interesting.. also my daughter is away at school.. but when she is here I have a lot of fun making cute food, w/edible flowers and such. so I thought I would give it a try. I look at the bento thing kind of like an engineering challenge.. because you have to come up with not only something that looks cool but is also tasty.. I don't have any boxes or any sort of thing.... we live in Oregon. dont know anything about availablity of gadgets here ^^ anyway I joined the club. so far they haven't done a lot. I was hoping they might have some contests so I could try something. :}

I joined a bento club when I first started this account but I lost patience with it.
I don't know if it is the same one.

Oregon must have some cool places to shop for bento stuff. there are 9 Daiso stores. grab your daughter and take a road trip...

I look deeply into every Asian market I come near.
I have found some neat little boxes on line. also don't let a name stop you, one of my favorite boxes is a wonder bread sandwich box that was hanging in the aisle in the grocery store. I don't even like wonder bread but the dots are fun and its sandwich shaped
(and $3) I also use paper punches (for scrap booking ) to cut "nori" seaweed to decorate things. Every one wants little green foot prints on their rice don't they?

Shipping from Japan is also reasonable and its the only place to get egg molds. You have to watch the size though... they also make them for quail eggs.

:wow: wow...... *mental picture of quail egg molds* you know I would want those too though.. (for shaping olives, natch!) I can see how this can be obsessive! well theres an oriental store right here that we both love, I will take a close look through it... and i imagine that just a thrift store is probably a fine place to find little containers and boxes that could stand-in for the authentic ones.. I know there are piles of little containers and such at the goodwill's here... I know i have sheets of that nori in my cabinet right now... (I actually cook with it) the club I'm in is called *dAbento I think they do more chatting though :( I'd like a challenge, cause i'm not sure I can come up w/my own themes quite yet... thanks for the addresses :hug: you are already helping me have ideas. :)

Oh, I wish I could get duck and goose eggs...I tried them when I was a kid and didn't like them but Id like to try them again. We have duck eggs but they are aged and dyed purple. I expect they're hideous.
