Here is a cute witch ham sandwich, yogurt star cookies, broccoli, peppers, cucumbers, cashews, and a clementine.

Yummy Kawaii Bento Review!

Today I am reviewing Yummy Kawaii Bento by Li Ming Lee. Now I am a huge lover of cookbooks! I am also a huge fan of bento! When you combine the two you can pretty much bet that I am going to love it! Yummy Kawaii Bento does just that. There are so many awesome lunches. There are also several recipes in the book. I am more of the American style bento maker. This cookbook gives me the information and instructions I need to go outside of that box. So I can create something different inside the box. Each page has detailed instructions to make things easier for you to make each lunch creation.

Today I made two lunches from the book. They aren't exactly the same as the book shows, but in my opinion that's the beauty of bento. You can pretty much take any idea and run with it. You can make it your own and tailor it to your families likes.

My first is called. Bear Sandwich Rolls.

Look at how cute it is!

Here is my version. There are two ham rolled sandwiches, cucumbers, a clementine, peppers, and cashews.

My second lunch is called. Chicks In Bread Cup Nests! I made the chicks and used regular eggs instead of quail eggs.

Here is my version!

This lunch has two hard boiled eggs, a clementine, cashews, peppers, cucumbers and Annie's snack   mix.              

I had a lot of fun making bento's from Yummy Kawaii Bento. They were pretty easy and turned out super cute. I recommend Yummy Kawaii Bento! It's an awesome book full of the cutest bento lunches ever! You can get your copy by clicking the link below.

Mummy Sandwich!

I honestly can not believe that Halloween is almost here! We have been so busy at my house making and putting together costumes, the time has just flown by! This year three of the kids are going as Doctor Who characters. The oldest is going to be the "11th Doctor". The youngest girl is going to be a "Weeping Angel", and the boy is going to be "The Empty Child", from "Are you my mummy?" Boy it has been a lot of work, but it is so worth it. The middle girl is going to be a 80's chick. Talk about the odd man out. lol It is what it is, and that's what she wants!

Today I made this super cute mummy sandwich! It was also so quick to make. Five minutes from start to finish. Like todays lunch, this will be a super quick post about todays lunch!

This lunch is for the youngest girl. She has a ham sandwich, sweet peppers, carrots, sugar snap peas, grapes, a clementine, cheese sticks, and yogurt star cookies.        

Here are two more Halloween lunches!

Halloween Lunches in EasyLunchboxes!

It's finally October! This is my favorite season or themed lunches. Today I have three Halloween themed lunches for you all in EasyLunchboxes! These lunches were super simple and very quick to make. Each lunch took about five minutes. I put together this cute little collage to showcase my simple Halloween themed lunches.

All three lunches are for my youngest daughter. Each one is simple and has easy to find ingredients. Each lunch includes two veggies and one fruit. A ham sandwich and a small treat. It is the month for treats after all. Making a themed lunch doesn't have to be a daunting and time consuming. I love making quick and fun lunches. These three are perfect examples of the quick and fun lunches you can make in just five minutes.    

You can find some of the products I used to make these lunches by clicking the picture links below.
