We are getting back into the swing of things! Bento prep is vastly less complicated when I plan the night before. I review what I want to make - both recipes and characters - and check to make sure I have the ingredients. Being surprised in the morning by not having any egg sheets made is less fun than one might expect. While I can make emergency egg sheets in the morning, I really prefer not to!
In the bento: Two cute rolled sandwiches, raspberries, blackberries, tiny carrot strips, sweet corn on the cob, potato salad and steamed broccoli.
The sammies have shredded cheese and mayo inside and are held together with toothpicks. Even though the toothpicks were pretty obvious, A-chan was warned about them as we drove on the way to school. The ears and mouths were cut from egg sheets and the other details from nori.
A-chan is enjoying her new dessert-themed picks that we purchased in San Francisco this summer. They are cute and handy so I'm loving them too.
