Since I was a little girl I have been making myself neat plates of finger foods and little cut up sandwiches with a wine glass of Cheerwine or Ginger Ale along side. And I cannot even put into words my love of Hello Kitty stuff. So imagine my surprise at discovering the sweet little bentos Emily creates on Bentobloggy! Amzaing little snippets of food packed into adorable, even chic, containers! Oh joy!
Needless to say, I have been scouring my cabinets and the Internet for these cute little bento boxes and all of the food picks and cut outs. And in the spirit of bentos, I made myself a bentoesque meal Friday night. Sorry, no picture, but I promise to take one of the next little bentoesque meal I make for myself. On my son's little divided tray I served myself carrot sticks, celery sticks, mini cheese triangles, beef roll ups and whole wheat crackers. What a treat! Believe me, I'll be doing this again. And I have a Guinea pig in my 9 year old brother-in-law. He will be sampling my trial bentos before school.
Still I have no bento of my own as of yet. But I have entered the Bentobloggy bento-giveaway in hopes of scoring my very first. Of course, while you are checking out that amazing blog, you should enter the giveaway yourself.
Happy day, friends!
