Bella eating a bento

I kept Bella home today to give her one extra day to get better. She has been sick over the weekend. Nothing major but just trying to prevent a big croup flair up. Anyhow, I made her bento last night before deciding to keep her home. This is my Bella eating her bento. Love her.
At home with sick Bella. We are just hanging on the couch, watching movies. I thought I would catch up on blogging. Here are the past few bento lunches I made for Bella plus a new Ladybug sandwich cutter. My Morgan found it at her!

Bento Reorganization

I have a small kitchen and minimal storage space. I have to be creative with my bento storage, so it does not get out of control and take over. I some time reorganize, including purchasing new storage containers. Check out my new storage.

Fall might be on it's way but it sure feels like summer!

From the feel of the weather outside, I should be making fishy or summer themed bentos. I guess I wont complain since this means maybe trick or treating will be mild :) In preparation of Halloween, here is my Happy Face Pumpkin Bento. Once again, I made the sandwich using the cutter on each separate piece of the sandwich....Why didn't I figure this out?

Grape tomatoes
Pretzel sticks
Apple (that Bella picked herself at the farm yesterday)

I figured out how to use my Lunch Punches!!

Thanks to a follower of my facebook page for Bentos for Bella, I now know how to use my lunch punches for sandwiches. I was making the sandwich first then using the cutter. I was told, and I can't find the post right now, to use the cutter on the two pieces of bread first, then make the sandwich. IT WORKED! Thank you, Thank you....I never understood why my sandwiches didnt look as neat as other people's! Now I love my Lunch Punches.

Here is Bella's bento for tomorrow. I used my crown lunch punch to make a princess and butterfly themed lunch.
