bento!

Rabbit bento...

A friend has been writing about bento boxes on facebook and recently put up a link to an awesome flickr group.

Not that I have the organization to do this, but isn't that so cute? I can only imagine the eye rolling that is going on right now from some of my dear readers (*coughdadcough*), but I'm totally inspired to start making my kids' lunches cute occasionally. Do you think they would eat more? That'd be a bonus, maybe little Banksy's pants would stay up once in a while. Poor skinny child. Anyway, here's one I did a long time ago that's not nearly as cute these little bento ones, but it's a place to start:

Mmmmmmmk just kidding. My external hard drive is taking forever to come to life, so maybe tomorrow this will be a picture instead of an excuse.

Ok so I'm all done with this post now and I'm thinking, "I'm 25 and blogging about how to make my kids lunches into tiny works of art. How lame am I?" And the answer is:

Quite. But that's ok with me. Oh high school self, if you could have seen this future you back then you would.have.died. Died!

I actually had a real Bento lunch yesterday. It's one of my favorite lunches to enjoy.

It's funny because I only really know the "old high school self" and I love reading your blogs and reading about your "transformations." I knew you had it in you...You never fooled anyone :) You had your Martha moments back in high school as well!

I think that is darling!! Like who really comes up with something as cute as that? I want to know what the little bunny dude is though. So cute!! Not lame at all.

Hey, when it comes to kids and eating, especially eating good whatever it takes is worth it :)

Carrie, you are far from lame. I think it's an adorable idea and it looks fun to me too. ;)

Bento lunches are awesome. I actually own a lunch pale specifically designed for them: "Mr. Bento." I love it. Your post reminded me of a guy that creates a unique lunch bag design every day for his kids. This guy is the master!
