Simple Bento Week {Lunch #2}

Simple bento # 2.  Today we upped the cute factor a bit by using a cookie cutter.  Such a simple thing to do (takes 2 seconds) but makes such a huge difference.  My favorite cookie cutters to use are the ones that leave impressions on the bread.  There are many different kinds available (vintage, stamp plates, spring loaded)  and any of them are great for making cute sandwiches.  There is a high probability that you already own one of these, so go ahead and give it a try the next time you pack lunch!

In this bento:  Peanut butter and marshmallow fluff Hello Kitty sandwich, Cheez-Its, orange slices (arranged to resemble a rainbow), and strawberries.

Items used today:


  1. Cute! I'm intrigued by this "marshmallow fluff" you speak of...

    1. Thanks! My daughter does not like jelly so I had to come up with an alternative :). Here is the recipe I use http://www.pinterest.com/pin/394768723559423413/

  2. It may be simple but this lunch looks beautiful and delicious. LOVE that hello kitty sandwich!
