Bunny Bento

A bunny sandwich hopped into our lunch today.

In this lunch:  Bunny sandwich with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff, Trader Joe's sesame honey cashews, black olives, strawberries, cucumber slices, and a carrot shaped chocolate.  You can't truly have and Easter bento without chocolate!!!

The cookie cutter I used for the sandwich was found in the Easter section at Walmart this year.

Easter Egg in Noodle Nest

Tuesday evening is now soccer practice.  After shuttling everyone around it does not leave much time for making bentos.  So, a quick lunch with a few fun Easter accents for tomorrow.

In this lunch:  Corn on the cob, a hard boiled egg (all decorated for Easter) in a "nest" of low mein noodles, watermelon & cantaloupe balls, cucumber slices, and Annie's chocolate chip bunny grahams.

*The bunny pick was found at the Dollar Tree.

Bernie Rabbit

Today's lunch was inspired by Bernie the rabbit the mascot of Annie's Homegrown.  I saw "flat Bernie" on the back of our bunny grahams (see photo near bottom) and had to make him (or her ?).  I originally had some Easter decorations in this lunch but decided against them and just went with the Bernie theme :)  

In this lunch:  Dolmas (stuffed grape leaves), lightly steamed cauliflower, cheese sauce for dipping in the little bunny container, watermelon Bernie with cucumber tail (held together with a toothpick), a strawberry, Annie's cheddar snack mix, and Annie's bunny fruit snacks.

Source of inspiration and template that I used for the watermelon.
