Good morning, everyone!

I'm so excited because I've been waiting for a package from Japan for the past few weeks and it arrived yestreday!  It contained some cool tools to assist me in beginning my journey into BENTO!  I can't remember where I first stumbled upon bento, but I do remember being immediately drawn into it.  I even plan to try and start a small business built around it.  You know, I could make and sell pre-made lunches, or sell the individual "cute" foods, pre-packaged so other people wouldn't have to spend time they don't have making their kids' (healthy) food super cute so they'll eat it.

Does that sound like something you'd be interested in?  I think I would totally be into buying precut hotdogs that look like octopi, eggs shaped like bunnies, onigiri (rice balls) and salads with shaped veggies.

Anyway, I got up this morning while Buck was in the shower and quickly threw together a little salad for him to take to work.  We only had lettuce and cucumbers, and I only had like 5 minutes to make it (luckily I had tested the egg shaper last night!) so it's not awesome, but it still makes me very happy!

These pictures were taken with my phone so they're not the best quality but you get the idea!  It's an egg, cucumber slices,  romaine lettuce, apple and a little ranch dressing, but it'll do in a pinch :)

Once I find my camera and really start experimenting with the bento awesomeness, I'll share it with you guys.  Rowan was playing with the camera the other day and now it's nowehere to be seen.  Little punk ;)

And he looks so angelic when he's sleeping....


  1. Everyone loves to eat cute food! Your five minute salad was great. However, I demand pictures in color next go at it!

  2. My camera's still missing, but I did my best to make more colorful pictures in my next post! It's all for you, Rachel!

    P.s. Methinks it's about time you updated YOUR blog, missy!
