Today I’m really excited to be a part of a blog hop! The Bento Bloggers and Friends group is hosting two Valentine’s Day Blog Hops today, and after looking at my bentos please be sure to hop over to Perry’s Dreams, Schemes, and Bento Themes blog and continue hopping!
If you’re new to my blog, welcome! I have 3 daughters, and today I’m featuring the lunches for the older two. The youngest’s lunch is just chicken soup, grapes, and a cupcake, so nothing fun today! All three girls also have Lunchbox Love Valentine’s Day notes in their lunches.
G2′s lunch is a return to the Pokémon lunches. In her Easy Lunchbox I’ve packed a silicone heart cup filled with penguin-shaped MOMables-inspired gf crackers, and I used a food safe marker to add some details. She has another heart cup with Havarti with dill cheese and a cute 3D heart to jazz it up. I used food dye to color the sushi rice and paint cheese to make two Luvdisc Pokémon. I used a nori face punch for the eyes and a circle punch to make the cheeks and lips out of sliced mozzarella cheese. I hope she likes them!
In the top right section of her ELB are four strawberries cut into heart shapes. At the bottom right is a gluten-free chocolate cupcake that G2 and G3 over sprinkled. I added a little chocolate heart in red foil as a treat – G2 is spending the day “shadowing” a student at a private school she’s hoping to attend, so getting a little chocolate is rather like getting an energy and love boost.
G1′s lunch is simpler – she wouldn’t appreciate a Pokémon lunch. In her Thermos is tomato soup to keep her warm on a cold day. The rest of her lunch is packed in a Totoro Bento Box. At left, in the top section, are strawberries cut into heart shapes and decorated with a 3D heart. Her cupcake is decorated with some face candies I found at Target rather than a bazillion sprinkles. In the bottom section of her bento she has three tofu hearts that say I Love U, plus a pink sushi rice heart with a nori face on top.
